Porsche’s Lamborghini’s and more – Watch a bulldozer destroy 68 luxury cars (Video)


Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has done it again! A total of 68 luxury cars and several motorcycles were recently destroyed by a bulldozer in the presence of the President of Philippines. The ruined pile of high-end cars included Lamborghinis, Mustangs and several Porsches, reportedly worth a total of 298million Piso (about $5.6 million). All these cars were smuggled into the country and the president has always adopted a hard-line approach to counter such illegal activities. Just a few months back, the Philippines authorities destroyed a similar pile of luxury cars. President, who ran a campaign to fight corruption and drugs before elected in 2016, can be seen in the video wearing a white industrial safety hat and enjoying the show.

Duterte admitted in his speech that he knew he will not be able to eradicate corruption and smuggling in government during his term, but such extreme measures are crucial to his plans. “I did this because you have to show to the world that you have a viable place of investment and business,” Duterte said, according to UK’s Dailymail. “And the only way to show it is that you are productive and that you have the economy, to absorb the productivity of the population.” If you love cars and have a weak heart, I’ll advice against watching the video.
