We as automotive enthusiasts love cars. It does not matter in what form or brand they are. And we make sure that we take utmost care of our vehicles. There are few people who think otherwise. Here are 10 automotive examples we should be ashamed of – ultra luxurious and sportscars cars rotting and left to die alone in India.
The iconic British brand is now owned by Tata. The cars that the brand makes oozes luxury. This Jaguar XF has been left to rot. Sources say that the car has been impounded and the owner never came to rescue it. The XF has weeds growing around it and makes for a pitiable sight.
The imported exotic is not even available in India. The SUV was impounded in Kerala after an accident and has been rotting in the police station for many years now. The sad state of the car will make you cringe. Hummer cars are very rarely seen on Indian roads. The notorious Mohamed Nisham, who’s currently locked up, is the owner.
This Rolls-Royce Phantom is an old model of the car. This is no way to treat a Rolls-Royce. According to the data released by Rolls-Royce, about 65% of Rolls-Royce ever sold by the company are still operating on the road. The cars are built to last. This sight of the Phantom abandoned at a port in South India is not a happy one.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
The 911 is deemed to be the best car made by Porsche, ever. This particular model of Porsche is code-named the 996, and has won few several awards of its design. The Karnataka registered car has been left to die in the outskirts of West Bengal, and the owner remains untraceable.
Nissan GT-R R34
The Nissan GT-R R34 is one rare breed in the world, and there are very few good specimens left. The R34 is loved by the enthusiasts all over the world. After all, it is a GT-R. This GT-R was found in a garage in Coimbatore in a really sad condition. Ouch!
The luxury SUV from Porsche is something anyone will love to own and maintain it in top condition, for life. This Cayenne sadly did not get the same treatment. It is a 2008 model Cayenne with the door mounted spare wheel. The car is now just counting its last days with no one to take care of it.
Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni
This was India’s only Balboni limited edition car and there are only a few across the world. The Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni edition met with an accident in Delhi. The car has been lying like this since then and no one has made an effort to repair or rescue the car. This is automotive art, left to die.
Nissan GT-R R35
This is the Godzilla, er the Nissan GT-R. And the supercar killer is getting killed at the Delhi customs. The R35 was imported but could not clear the customs and is lying in a very sad state at Delhi custom office. The car carries a twin turbo 478 BHP engine. What a criminal waste of pedigreed horsepower.
Toyota Land Cruiser
The temporary number plate on this Land Cruiser tells us that it is a brand new vehicle. The car is at a stockyard in Mallapuram and has been completely neglected by the owner. The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s most premium offering in India and costs more Rs. 1 crore.
Bentley Continental Flying Spur
This Bentley Flying Spur has been left to die a brutal death. The elegant Bentley that is the dream car of a few million people in this world has not received any attention from its owner. The Flying Spur is one the most luxurious Bentleys ever made.
