Angry Ill-treated Supercars from around the world

There are people to prevent cruelty against animals all around the world, ASPCA sorts, but what hurts us petrolhead-kind most is the cruelty against automobiles.

Here are some pictures of exotic cars being ill-treated.

All pictures compiled over time from different sources, so can't give an exact source.

OMG.

Thats bad, really bad. These exotics seems to be plaything in the hands of the inexperienced. What the hell is a lioness doing on the roof the car, I am sure the roof surely had some deep nail marks. What are those people trying to do with the Lambo? Using a forklift to ferry a Bentley, unbelievable.

Hurts.

If your parking spot was vulnerable to flooding, wouldn't you move your Porsche out when the flooding started? Worst case, place it on planks in the same spot?

As they say, money can buy everything but, common sense. An Enzo "abandoned" at a parking lot!!. People move their mobikes from waterlogged ares to safe places and here, we have a beautiful Porsche stuck in mucky water. That's really cold! What's with the retarded man posing with his lioness atop the car?

All just to make a point that Lamborghini wasn't treating him nice as a customer. What was that about cutting off your nose to spite your face?

Its at Dubai Airport. Its very sad to see they flee leaving behind cars much exotics like Enzo. Only 399 were made, sold to guys selected by Ferrari and this is how they treat 'em.

Really painful photos to look at. Makes you wonder about humanity in general.

Some of those look like they are just sitting idle in parking lots, which is better than the alternatives of others.

Supercars deserve respect. But as is evident from some of these pictures, not everyone thinks so. To some these are just toys to be handled the way toys are meant to be. To some - their daddy's have a lot of money, and to others - it's not mine, so why do I care!

Here's an article about the Sultan of Brunei's rotting supercar collection. Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but I think this link qualifies to be here.

Not sure if this is a doctored image but it seems legit.

Found it on my Facebook homepage.

Good point.

But is there a difference between a SUV's water-wading abilities and being just stationary in a water-logged area? Remember, stagnant water can corrode some parts while wading through water is different as you get in and get out. I guess it depends on:

- How long the G-Wagon was stationary in the water-logged basement,

- How deep the water was.

Actually this was not the case of ill-treating super cars. The owners had their prized possessions parked in probably one of most expensive residential complex in the country. Trouble was, the developers did not not really expect the unexpected. They might have built the building to handle mild tremors, but flooding city roads was something unheard of until then
