Dubai’s Luxury Car Problem

May 22, 2013 in Daily Bulletin

Messy Nessy Chic took a look at a problem that most cities probably wish they had: too many abandoned luxury cars:

  • In Dubai’s airports and parking lots abandoned Jaguars, Ferraris, and Porsches accumulating dust isn’t too uncommon a sight.
  • The cars likely belong to foreigners who lost it all during Dubai’s financial crisis and hastily left the country.
  • It’s a criminal offense to have a check bounce in Dubai and so bankrupted luxury car owners drove their vehicles over to the airport and left them there.
  • Owners sometimes leave the loan documents on the dashboard of the car with the keys still in the ignition.
  • Residents are beginning to complain about the cars taking up valuable parking spots. The government has started to auction off the million dollar vehicles.
