While some people would do anything to own a supercar, there are also those who would love to see them all get smashed, especially if they are owned by insincere people.
Fortunately, you can do that if you’re a president of the Philippines. President Rodrigo Duterte is famous for his strict approach to the war on drugs.
Recently, he had 68 supercars and 8 motorcycles wrecked after they were seized by the customs due to an attempt to smuggle them into the country.
Watch the footage below!
The supercars included Porsches, Lamborghinis, and Mustangs, and they were worth as much as $5.6 million (298 million piso).
While the cars were getting run over by a bulldozer, the president, who wore a hard-hat, watched and cheered. The destruction of the luxury cars happened in Cagayan, northern Philippines.
“I did this because you have to show to the world that you have a viable place of investment and business.
“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,” the president said.
He also added that this is one of his many plans to “establish law and order” and offer a better future for the Archipelago country.
According to the president’s office statement, these cars were only a small part of a larger group amounting to 800 seized vehicles.
This wasn’t the first time that ‘the Destroyer’ had to deal with illegally-imported cars. Just last year, the Bureau of Customs seized dozens of luxury cars worth over 2 million dollars.
While some questioned the decision to have the cars destroyed, Duterte clearly showed the people that the government would rather see their destruction than profit from crime.
In an attempt to put an end to drugs and crime, the Philippine police vowed to fight even harder.
“Surgical and chilling will be the trademark of the reinvigorated anti-illegal drugs and anti-criminality campaign,” police chief Oscar Albayalde said.
He also added that the consequences would be “frightful” for those who continue to disobey the laws.
