Driving a luxury car is no easy task. This type of car generally costs several hundred thousand dollars and is aimed at wealthy customers who spend lavishly. Such vehicles also usually require extensive maintenance which costs quite a bit of money, which makes this video even more difficult to watch. Even if these rides were released from captivity, could they get back on the road?
Not all of the cars featured in this new video are supercars, as we see a lot of vans and other quieter machines. They were seized for various reasons by Chinese authorities, but from what can be seen in the video, none show significant damage. This suggests that there may still be a future for some of these cars. However, it seems that some have been rotting in this wasteland for years and this can be difficult to overcome without considerable expense.
Instead of the local authorities reselling them at auction as is usually the case, these cars are stored there for as long as it takes for justice to do its job. It is clear that their owners will never get them back, especially in such a state.
This Hangzhou cemetery in China contains a previous generation Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche Panamera Turbo, Audi R8, Aston Martin Vantage S Roadster, and Bentley Continental Flying Spur. It’s not a litany of premium cars, but to even see one in such a state is tragic.
This video shows that some authorities have no mercy on luxury vehicles. This is particularly striking in the Philippines, for example, where every car imported illegally is destroyed. Plus, they regularly post videos showing the process to drive the point home.
Then there is the Supercar Cemetery in Dubai, where you see damaged cars but at least the air is dry so death to the elements is limited. Plugging in some repairs could allow a few of these desert cars to come to life, but the vine-covered rides in China have a much more uncertain future.
