Philippine customs officers destroyed luxury cars worth 1 million euros


Philippine customs officers destroyed 21 luxury cars worth 1 million euros in an image campaign in which the authorities want to teach a lesson to car dealers.

Enter the PHOTO Gallery

That’s what the set for a Fast and Furious movie might look like, but the truth is much sadder. All the cars in the photo, for which any self-respecting Romanian would sell his mother, were sentenced to destruction, and the sentence is carried out by the miserable bucket of an excavator. Yes, even in the case of the star of the group, a McLaren 620R.

Along with it, under the bucket of the excavator also ended Lotus, a Bentley, a 911, an SLK, a Genesis Coupé, but also a Solara convertible. By far, however, McLaren is the most valuable – only 350 units have been manufactured. The destruction of one is thus almost a sacrilege, but also an act that will lead to a substantial increase in the value of those who are still on the roads or in private collections.

Philippine customs officers destroyed luxury cars worth 1 million euros. What is the reason

The action is not unique – the Philippine authorities have been carrying out such abominable acts for many years. The country’s leader, dictator Rodrigo Duterte, has made a name for himself not only by shooting traffickers, but also by destroying illegally imported cars in the country. In the last such action, cars worth over one million euros were destroyed. These are two different captures, one of 14 Mitsubishi SUVs and another that includes seven sports cars, including the McLaren in the photos.

Rodrigo Duterte has ordered such destruction in the past, starting with 2018, an event in which a bulldozer passed over cars worth a total of over 7 million euros. In 2019, Duterte relapsed with a batch of cars worth over one million euros. Among the destroyed cars was a Ferrari 360 Spider. The images are tragic enough to wish all the misfortunes in the world of the crazy Duterte. But, what can we say, life is hard. All this destruction has a purpose, says Duterte, and that is to discourage illegal imports of cars.
