Supercar scrapyard

A giant scrapyard close to central Dubai in Sharjah is home to a huge stash of abandoned Supercars and classic luxury Sedans.

High end cars such as Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Buick Sedans and Mercedes have been left to rot and are covered in grime.

It is believed that many of the cars belonged to expats who had defaulted on loan payments, and had fled the country after the financial crash in 2012 when they could no longer keep up their lavish lifestyles. They are believed to have been high flying businesmen who hit hard times and faced financial ruin. They then vacated the country to evade UAE's stringent debt laws and to avoid being put behind bars.

Despite some of them being in such shocking condition after heat taking its toll, they are actually on the market for their parts at knock down prices.

Even with their dilapidated looks, some are still in pretty mint condition with their spare parts being offered at half price.

A 25 year old YouTuber. Mohsin Latif, who manged to take these stark images, perceives that the scrapyard is the largest in the UAE.

He says "Supercars, luxury cars, vintage cars, classic cars, you can find all of them here. "I don't have any idea how old they are but these are some of the most expensive cars."

He states that he hasn't seen any other market as large as this one.

People even travel there from other countries to purchase the spare parts at half price. Who can blame them?

So, if you're in need of some spare parts and you fancy an extended shopping trip, then head on over to central Dubai. Just try not to shed any tears at what you see.
