The Burning Cargo Ship That Was Carrying $155 Million in Porsches, Bentleys and Lamborghinis Has Sunk
The ship, which carried over 4,000 Volkswagen AG cars, was being towed to land when it went under.
Some reports have valued the iconic sports car marque at as much as $226 billion. Other estimates place it closer to $96 billion.
The ship’s 22-member crew was evacuated and no injuries were reported.
The carmaker gives the gas-fueled engine a royal send-off with the 1,578 hp model that’s also suitable for daily driving.
Mate Rimac has built a multibillion-dollar EV technology company, released a record-breaking electric hypercar and taken the reins of storied French marque Bugatti. Next up: Turning 34.
The vessel will feature the same powertrain as VW’s ID.3 and ID.4.
The conglomerate also says it won’t be selling or spinning-off Lamborghini or Ducati.
Just in case you’re in the market for a bad-ass, flame-throwing VW.
