A cargo ship carrying thousands of luxury cars was left floating across the Atlantic Ocean after catching fire near the Terceira Island in the Azores, the Portuguese island territory.
According to USA TODAY, the ship departed from Emden, Germany, on Feb 10 and was scheduled to arrive in Davisville, Rhode Island, on Wednesday, but unfortunately, a fire broke out. All crew members were safely lifted off of the cargo ship by helicopter.
The Drive reported that the cargo ship is also carrying 4,000 vehicles from the Volkswagen Group, including 189 Bentleys and an unknown number of Audis.
Matt Farah, an editor of The Smoking tire, Tweeted he’s been waiting for his 2022 frozen-berry metallic Boxster Spyder, estimated at $123,000 since August. Farah told New York Times, “I just got a call from my dealer. My car is now adrift, possibly on fire, in the middle of the ocean.”
