Limo Nazi 'murder' probed
NEO-NAZI leader Jorg Haider may have been MURDERED, it was claimed last night.
Investigators say the Austrian Far Right leader was nearly four times the booze limit and travelling at more than twice the permitted speed when he lost control at 88mph last Saturday.
But the makers of his Volkswagen Phaeton limo insist the motor is one of the safest in the world and should have survived the crash in Klagenfurt.
The car giants yesterday sent its own experts to examine the mangled wreckage and search for signs it may have been SABOTAGED.

The German firm also sparked fury by linking the death of fascist icon Haider, 58, to that of Princess Diana.
The neo-Nazi chief careered off the road as he drove home from a boozy party.
But the promoter of the party has insisted he was not drunk when he set off.
VW spokesman Peter Thul claimed that someone with access to Haider’s car key could have manipulated the limo’s electrics which control the engine’s “brain”.
He said: “It is a fact that Haider was going too fast, but such a speed on that curve is not a problem for the car’s physics.
“The Phaeton and Audi A8 are the safest of all. You’d need the key to manipulate the electronics, so someone at a garage would have to tamper with it.
“Many things bring to mind Lady Diana’s death.”
Diana’s death in a 1997 Paris car crash sparked a rash of assassination theories — quashed only after two official investigations and an inquest.
The link between her and a Right Wing extremist will infuriate Prince Charles and sons William and Harry — who all drive VW-made Audis.
A close pal said: “It seems an extraordinary link to make. The family wish people would let the Princess rest in peace.”
