I’m sure today wasn’t a good day for BMW North America or for one insurance company. Because of a tipped cargo ship in New Jersey, 370 BMW cars were damaged, 70 of which were completely wrecked. And that’s not all the bad news…it seems that most of the cars were brand new E92 M3s. I’m sure the insurance company which will pay for this won’t be so happy about it.
The damaged cars will be taken to BMW’s Elizabeth Receiving facility where they’ll be fixed and then sold as new, which I don’t know if it’s so convenient for the buyers. The 70 severely damaged cars will be crushed. Apparently this wasn’t such a good week for sports cars, as we can see this “poor” guy being forced to get his Ferrari F430 towed by a $1000 Daewoo Tico.
See more photos of the damaged cars after the jump.
