It is interesting and slightly depressing to watch documentaries that highlight how our love affair with consumerism makes for the lot of waste.
Unluckily, that waste even comes in the form of objects that were once highly desirable and have lost their use. Objects like a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or the Maserati.
Usually when we catch wind of the exotic supercar being totaled or catching on fire, and we never stop to think about what happens to the unused shell afterwards. And thanks to YouTuber superspeedersRob, now we know. That’s because he took the trip to Sacramento, California where one of the nation’s exotic vehicle recyclers is located.
There workers take in any car with the high-priced badge and strip it of useful components in order for them to be sold as spare parts to owners of the other exotics.The scene is the bit depressing.
Carcasses of old Testarossas and Murcielagos line the lot with some of them and showing obvious signs of having been crashed at high speeds.
Disturbingly, there is the rather large number of cars there that appear to have committed suicide by means of the self-immolation, further reinforcing the archetype that with Italian cars, the fiery death is a matter of when, not if.
The silver lining in this all is that we can see how the caring team ensures that none of these cars’ sacrifices were in vain and the parts mined from these supercars will save another from spending the beautiful day inside the garage with an engine that won’t start. Don’t get too sad now.
