Typhoon in Japan destroyed 50 supercars FerrariSeptember 7, 2018
The Pacific typhoon “Jebi” caused the flooding and damage of 51 Ferrari owned by the dealer’s center of the brand located on the Japanese island of Rocco. According to the owner of the company, all supercars will be sent for recycling, since after the ingress of sea water into the engines they can not be repaired.
“Jebi,” the 21st typhoon for the season, hit the island a few days ago. The cyclone, which was strongest in a quarter of a century, was accompanied by gusts of wind, the speed of which reached 162 kilometers per hour. According to the publication Sankei, despite the measures taken, water penetrated the building and climbed to a level of one meter.
At this time in the cabin were 53 Ferrari cars, 51 of which almost completely submerged under water. The total amount of damage from the typhoon was one billion yen. The owner hopes that part of the expenses will be covered by insurance.
In October last year, a fire in Langley, Canada, destroyed a collection of 40 rare cars, and pickups, sports and supercars. The owner of the machines Harry Cassidy collected their last 30 years and for him it became an irreparable loss.
