|Vehicles in storage soon after the Sydney Showcase event 2015|
The remaining vehicles were destroyed by crushing in Cape Town to avoid incurring a government import / export tax
When filming was about to take place in 2003 cars were shipped to Namibia but never used , some of those vehicles were sold to members of the public and an accident occurred and a man died.
Filmakers were determined not to let this happen again as the cars were never meant to be " roadworthy " for daily use , so all unusable vehicles were destined for the crusher , despite crew members trying to save a couple
A sad fate for some true works of art.
|Oh what a day ...|
