This hits close to home, as I lived in Singapore for a few years.

Hmm, didn't think about that. I'm sure the building has some sort of insurance. That's gonna be one nice payout

I am wondering if they really are totaled or if the can be salvaged. I am sure the Rolls has the ground clearance to make it

and that incident occurred not in an ordinary hotel but a St. Regis establishment.

These cars mean as much to them as Corollas mean to LS460 owners

I dont see a flood, as long as no remote starters come out and no one opens the doors its fine. All it will need is a nice detail wax and good to go thats ofcourse after water evaporates.

It looks like the Aston could weather the flood..



I bet the person who has the RR Ghost is happy as hell though. One this is for sure, it is insane the price people pay for cars in other countries.

Hmm the only thing is we don't know if the water level was any higher than it is now. It could have been higher before.

Cuz i dunno if its just me, but if you look at the pic of the wall in the link below, looks like the water was a bit higher previously as there's some marks on the walls.
