51 Ferraris destroyed by Typhoon Jebi in Japan

A three foot high wall of seawater surged into a Ferrari showroom on an artificial island in the city of Kobe, destroying around $9 million in high-end supercars. About 100 cars at another seaside dealership in Nishinomiya in Hyogo prefecture were turned into junk after their electrical systems shorted out from sea water.

An extensive amount of repair is necessary to make cars reliable again after salt water damage. The 51 Ferraris have been written off for insurance purposes.
130 mph winds and rushing floodwaters claimed the lives of at least 11 people, making Typhoon Jebi the strongest such storm to hit Japan in decades.
