A deplorable sight in an underground garage, hundreds of millions worth of damage after the flood

The parking lot was completely under water, so most of the cars were in water up to the roof. There were “some” real specials, such as a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, a McLaren 570S, several Porsche 911s, a Mercedes-AMG GT, a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, a Bentley Bentayga, a Cadillac Escalade and a Genesis G80. On a lower note, a car worth HUF 700-800 million became a victim of the flood, as the passenger compartment was not spared by the water either, and a high-pressure wash at the well will not be enough to alleviate the damage.

A lot of water is not good for cars, especially if it comes from below. However, this is usually the case in the event of a flood. In such cases, dirty water seeps into even the smallest gaps, the door seals do not offer sufficient protection and the passenger compartment slowly fills up. And the water that comes with the different materials will make the carpet and upholstery smelly, the sponges will absorb it all and it will remain forever. Electrical components and servomotors also do not tolerate moisture well.
