This Is Where the World’s Unsold Cars Go to Die

In the passing years, the automotive industries has cleverly and deliberately hid the lack of demand from customer sales when it came to automotive vehicles. A term that can be used properly to describe what the automotive industries  is doing would be, “channel stuffing“. The automotive industries has been accused, rightfully, of an significantly high increase in inventory at dealer lots but not enough customer sales. Although dealer lots do endure customer sales, it may lead to flat or declining sales, ending in a decrease in demands. Here below is just one image, out of many, of a car cemetery lot full of unsold vehicles:

Luxury Cars Abandoned in Dubai

Rich people have many problems that the poor will never understand, like not knowing where the hell they left their Ferrari or Porsche parked. And if we are looking for rich people, nothing is better than Dubai, the capital of glitz and economic debauchery.

Ferrari in Dubai

Abandoned cars seem to be a norm in Dubai. You would think this was the doing of people with a seemingly unlimited amount of money, but  the truth is quite the opposite. Most of these abandoned cars belong to bankrupt debtors who have fled the country. In the United Arab Emirates, economic delinquencies and credit frauds are pursued in a very strictly manner and often is an offense punished with imprisonment.

Simply by failing to make a monthly payment on a credit card statement can start a whole machinery of prosecution that eventually reaches the debtor without the ability to adjust their debt by reducing or paying it with instalments. However in Dubai, there are only two choices; either you pay on time or you go to jail. And the financial crisis, though it doesn’t seem to impact them, it ends up affecting these eccentric millionaires. Once they are in deep waters and they need to pay off those super cars; the only choice they have is to drive to the nearest airport and catch the earliest flight out.

In some parking lots and airports of Dubai and Abu Dhabi you can find luxury car brands such as Porsche, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Bugatti, and Ferrari- completely abandoned and deteriorated, some even with the keys inside. The problem began in 2012, which led to over 3,000 super cars, as you’ll see below, completely abandoned. You should see the accumulating parking tickets that these abandoned vehicles had racked up.
