The Story Behind Dubai’s Supercar Graveyard

While most large cities are battling issues such as housing crisis’s and homelessness, Dubai’s abandoned supercars have made headlines around the world. Thousands of abandoned, expensive vehicles are discarded by their owners in streets, airports, car parks and alleys of Dubai, gathering dust in the dessert heat.

Why abandon a luxury supercar? Here’s the story.

Dubai’s hyper-luxury, fast and expensive lifestyle led many to purchase vehicles they couldn’t afford. When payments became impossible, the owners quite literally just decided to abandon the cars, leaving them to collect dust in car lots. That’s right: thousands of them.

Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentley — you name it, all littered throughout Dubai, blocking roads and taking up space.

The lesson here? Keeping up with the Joneses in Dubai comes with a hefty sum, and thousands of people are (not) paying the price.
