Make sure to check out our part 1 of The fates of 20 priciest cars that were abandoned by their owners and now let's go for Part 2:
10. 1964 GT 40 - $7m (~N2.7b)
Admit it! It hurts to see such a racing monster carrying a whopping load of spare things on its back. Such a tragedy for a super racing car to get stuck in the trash not able to find its way back to the racing track like in its glory days again.

9. Bugatti Type 57S - $ 4.5m (~N1.7b)
Only 17 units of the Bugatti Type 57S ever released but the owner of this car dared abandon it for 40 years since the 60s to his death in 2007, which appalled his family who had never known about such a precious property before.
It was found dormant in a garage with some old bottles of wine untouched for many years. If the family ever decided to bring it to an auction, no doubt they could gather $ 5 million (~N1.9b).

8. 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona - $200,000 (~N78m)
Being one of the only 460 Dodges ever produced, this Dodge Charger was abandoned in the open air for 2 months that is an ample time for a vehicle to get rotten and malfunctioned.
The owner should have brought it to an auto service for the polishing job, then wish for a good price in an auction. Is that a wise idea?

7. 1965 Jaguar E-Type - $150,000 (~N58m)
A gift should be a token to keep and remember, but just look at this precious gift! It was even never driven. And can you imagine that it’s a gift to a wife from her husband? It must be some quarreling happening right after the present that made her swear to never touch it again and she’s serious with her swear? Is that a good conspiracy? Only God knows! But we do know, the car might fetch a good amount of money displayed in an auction.

6. 1967 Shelby Cobra 427 - $2 million (~N779m)
A Shelby Cobra is more connected to luxurious things, not a warehouse with spare parts like these. It was left abandoned for 20 years in a house that even starts to fall down itself.

5. 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB - $2.5 million (~N974m)
In the same house that people found out the Shelby Cobra sat idling the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB which reads only 13,000 in mileage. The good news is that, it is still in mint condition though having been abandoned since 1991.

4. 36 Chevrolet abandoned cars - $1 million (~N389m)
This dealer turned out to have made his forgotten garage into a gold mine. Most people will think of the idea of letting car uncared and covered by dust to be an insane idea. But look! This man’s example proves the opposite.
Left for 20 years, a car in the garage was estimated to be worth a whopping price of half a million dollars.
Is it a good investment in dust, huh?

This Porsche has been left there in its hibernation for 4 years. Dust has covered all over the cars and it rims are all touching the ground for deflated tires.
People said its Japanese owner was being sentenced, hence has nothing to do with the car while no other has been passed the right to take care of it. The only thing that can bring this car back to its shiny look is the day its owner gets released.

2. Lamborghini Countach - $500,000 (~N194m)
Another exotic car that was abandoned in Japan. This is luckier than the one above to sit idling in a parking lot which costs $430 per month and ten months of parking under such price can handle the entire repair service of this Lamborghini.
