Default Sad: Orchard Road Floods once again - Exotics destroyed



I was browsing FB just a few minutes ago and found this. Each photo is like having a spike piercing through my heart This is St. Regis Residences Carpark along the Orchard Road. Read on and feel the pain

One year on, Orchard Road area floods again

June 5, 2011 - 8:25pm

TORRENTIAL rain led to flash floods occurring in the Orchard Road area yesterday.

A few millions of dollars went down the drain after luxury super cars were damaged after being submerged in the basement 3 carpark of St Regis Residences at Tanglin Road.

The trail of carnage didn't stop there - Tanglin Mall experienced a 'waterfall' as a ceiling collapsed and goods were destroyed.

The New Paper was on the scene to chronicle the damage.

Read the full report in The New Paper today (June 6).

Check out our mega gallery of the flood below.

I'm sad to see what happened to the Italia, Superleggera and GT3 RS..
Though the Roller and Vantage seems unscathed by the flood..

at least the 458 isn't on fire.

somehow I don't feel sorry for the 458 or the Superleggera or the 911 GT3.
But really weep for the V12 Vantage, those things are limited production.

As car lovers, as long as if it is your beloved ride, be it DC5,
Civic Type-R or even a Camry or Accord..you will feel heartache
as well.

this one not so bad as last year ... last year worse as many basement carpark got flooded and owners didn't have time to bring their car out in time. This time, most had driven their car out of the basement after the initial siren for possible flooding. From the looks of it, the supercars there in the pic not completely submerged. So Still able to salvage .. water mark on the wall is not higher than air intake and normally these cars door sills are quite good. the most owners have to fork out $$ is to dry clean their carpets and some polish/wax ....

Sometimes getting a SUV isn't such a bad idea after all. Ohh, these car owners normally drive in groups into Malaysia because afraid kena hijack. Happen before a few years ago ... reported also. It's either car kena hijack or car drown? which is the lesser of 2 evils... hehe

hehe definitely car drown in a bit better than hijack in my view lah
coz if hijack some bastard punks will have the car
however if drown at least if you cant have it anymore no one else can also except mother earth lol
just my 2 cents
