    It would seem that the glut of abandoned supercars littering the streets and airport car parks of Dubai are the result of locals and expats fleeing the country due to the extreme anti debt laws. Under Sharia law, observed across the Middle East, non-payment of debt is a criminal offence and as the UAE has no bankruptcy laws, there is no protection for those going into debt, even accidentally. There have even been cases of foreigners being prevented from leaving the Emirates after being blacklisted for simply missing a credit card payment! last year, over 3000 luxury cars were found to be abandoned in Dubai…here’s a few that really must have hurt to leave behind!

    Under Cover 911

    These cars are left by expats and even locals skipping out of the country because of illegal debt…most often missing payments on the cars themselves!

    Dropped Off Drop Top Mercedes

    One of the biggest problems in Dubai is the amount of cars just dumped in airport car parks..literally…dumped!

    Butchered Bugatti

    Once a car is judged to be abandoned a notice is served to the owner..15 days later…it’s impounded!

    Musty Mustang

    Most impounded vehicles are never claimed as the owner is no longer in the country and hundreds of cars are auctioned off each year.

    Found F40

    Some of these cars aren’t just exotic and rare…some of them are the most exotic…and the ultra rare!

    The Longest Pit Stop Ever!

    A slightly more unusual car…but still left to rot after being abandoned..of and it’s a promotional dummy don’t loose your lunch!

    Ferrari Message Board

    As most of these cars are bought on finance in an attempt to keep up with peers, it makes no difference what the badge is as the owner is just making a finance payment…and they are all left to get covered in sand in exactly the same way!

    Divorced Eleanor

    In some cases, abandoned cars have been found with notes of apology, keys in the ignition and documents on the seat!

    Expat XJ

    The shocking thing is, that most of these cars are reported to the authorities by people who find them “unsightly”!

    Back To The Future…Left In The Past

    Whilst the global economy has suffered the Gulf states have also felt the pinch which has seen large scale unemployment even in such opulent cities.

    Another Forgotten Ferrari

    It’s hard to see some of these cars just left to gather dust and sand.

    Apocalypse Audi

    Once someones pride and joy, just left on the spot in the parking lot of luxury apartments.

    Engulfed Enzo

    Last year, a Ferrari Enzo, one of only four hundred manufactured, was seized by police having spent several months in a car park collecting dust.

    Ferrari Enzo (Again)

    Gathering dust… £1 million Ferrari Enzo

    Dirty Pony

    Some owners try to sell their cars before they have to leave, but the market for used cars in Dubai isn’t strong as most are bought new from dealers on finance.

    Busted BMW

    Parked up and left..Bmw’s…Porsches…

    Imprisoned Merc

    One of Dubai’s car impounds holding many Mercedes

    Abandoned Delorean

    They’ll have some job getting the sand out of this car!
