Few gear heads were inspired enough to prepare their garages for a potential flood, which means that Harvey has put quite a lot of supercars to sleep.
The latest example of go-fast machines that were destroyed by the hurricane comes from the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

The clip shows us plenty of contraptions that are now ruined, with the list of cars seen here including a first-generation Ford GT, a Ferrari 458 Speciale, a 488 GTB and a Mercedes-Benz CLA - we're not sure about the G63, though. Oh, and let's not forget the pair of bikes seen here.

In our book, the Ferrari 458 Speciale is the greatest loss. This is a Maranello machine packing assets that could take days to fully describe. To put things shortly, we're talking about a supercar that signifies the end of an era for Maranello, with Ferrari having returned to turbocharging for its V8 models once the 458 Speciale production ended.

We can also talk about Luca di Montezemolo's departure, with the company now being led by Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne.. Oh, and let's keep in mind that the Pracing Horse is now present on the stock exchange.

The hurricane Harvey aftermath

If we leave our car aficionado side behind and look at the truly important statistics, the aftermath of the natural disaster becomes a massive issue.

To be more precise, Harvey left 47 people dead, while over 300,000 people need assistance, with 100,000 homes having been affected. The authorities have prepared aids that raise up to $53 million so far, with President Trump announcing he will be donating $1 million of his personal fortune to help those in need.

And the negative effects of the natural disaster don't end here. For instance, since the oil refining capacity has dropped following the hurricane, gas prices are expected to rise.
