In some locales, if you illegally street-race your car, the authorities may crush them. Likewise cars imported illegally. But those mostly go into compactors and come out as cubes.We can only wonder what was the real reason.
However, maybe this Bentley GT was a pre-production prototype or a test mule vehicle. In these cases all the car parts are not allowed to be sold on the market because of the insurance reasons.
Why do we need to crush cars? The most obvious reason is so they take up less space. But why are we scrapping, shredding and junking cars to begin with? Recycling cars is a lucrative business, and it makes environmental sense.
So, when the car finished with it’s task it must be completely crushed, that’s how the big automotive brands are doing with all the pre-production cars. All the companies who are running this type of business of crushing cars into a car compactor, must supply evidence to the car manufacturer that the vehicle was completely destroyed and no parts from the vehicle was sold off.Anyway it’s a big waste of a perfectly good luxury car.
