Ten most exotic cars destroyed by C4C

I suppose this is just fuel for the fire as to why I thought that program was freakin ridiculous, it's just wasteful.

First of all, that photograph is Photoshop central. Secondly, the article shows a Bentley Continental R, which none were traded in according to the government.

Some of the cars are just too suspicious to believe. Who on Earth would trade a Continental R (in any condition) in the C4C program?

But be sure to scroll down and read the Jalopnik comments, someone posted more cars that were clunkered, and prepare to be saddened. There's a lot of cars on that list that, while more believable as something that might have been traded in, are still cars that didn't deserve that fate (ima copy n' paste here):

"I'm going through the list right now.... some of the highlights (besides the cars already mentioned here) include:

- 3 Alfa Romeo Milanos
- Over 50 AMC Eagles
- 6 1984 - 1991 Audi Coupe GT and Quattro
- 4 Audi S4's and 4 S6's
- 45 BMW 6 Series
- 1 M3, 1 M5, and 1 Z3
- 1 CCC Engineering Duntov GT
- 52 Allantes
- A Few 1994 - 96 Impala SS
- at least 132 Corvettes
- at least 200 El Caminos
- 17 Chrysler Conquests (Mitsubishi Starion)
- 39 TC By Masarati
- 210 Stealths
- 1 Courier Pickup
- 24 Lightnings
- 107 Ford Taurus SHO
- 3 2007 GMC Acadias
- 15 Isuzu Vehicross
- Jaguars.... that count astounds
- 9 Jaguar XJR
- 2 XK8, 23 XJS, 26 XJS Cvt,
- A Boatload of Grand Wagoneers, and J10/20 Pickups
- 3 Laforzas
- You don't want to now the number of RX-7 and RX-8's
- 26 Merkur Scorpios, 21 XR4Ti's
- 20 Mitsubishi 3000 GT Spyders
- 5 Starions
- 1 2006 350Z Roadster
- 1 2006 Altima Coupe
- 22 Peugeots
- 61 Fieros
- 1 TVR 280i
- 310 Toyota Supras"

Ah I just checked the commentariat list versus Robotaz's pdf file and it seems to match up, so plenty of less jaw-dropping vehicles that were nevertheless historically significant or of collector interest got destroyed. What a damn shame. Even a ratty driven-to-hell-and-back GNX, M3, or S4 could be saved by someone with the time and money to do so. As a fan of 80s sports and sporty cars I shed a tear for the lost RX-7, Starion, XR4Ti, and yeah, even the Fiero.
