Not a JOKE!  Someone thought it was a Good idea to trade in these two rare vehicles in the Cash 4 Clunkers program...


Jalopnik has a list of the ten most exotic cars that were scrapped in Cash-For-Clunkers. A Bentley Continental R worth $307,000 and an Excalibur Autos Phaeton.

Though the most popular vehicle destroyed under Cash For Clunkers was the Ford Explorer, there were also AMGs, Rolls-Royces and even a LaForza crushed. The ten most exotic cars that fools parted with below. Click through if you dare.
We'd point out these vehicles have to have been insured and driven for a year, so it's not as if these were merely broken shells of these exotic makes. Someone had to destroy a roller for, at most, $4,500 off a new car. Click next to see what cars were destroyed, how much they originally sold for, and how rare they were.  In going through the list some of the vehicles also scrapped included Corvettes, Alfa Romeo Milanos, Audi S4 & S6, BMW 6 Series, M3, Mt and Z3, El Caminos, TC by Masarati, Stealths, 350 Z Roadster!
