A Lamborghini and a Mercedes AMG G63 smuggled into Vietnam were demolished on Wednesday, after four years with no one claiming them.

The disposal was carried out by the police of central Quang Binh Province.

Both supercars lacked legal documents, and both had been used before being seized by authorities.

They were kept at the Quang Binh police headquarters for four years, and no one had come to claim them.

Four years prior, 56-year-old Truong Thanh Binh, who lives in Hanoi, drove a truck carrying the two cars from Hanoi to HCMC on National Highway 1. When the cars reached Quang Binh, Binh was stopped by police forces for a check-up.

Binh was unable to provide papers to prove the cars’ legal origins. The national vehicle registration system also did not have any data on the two cars. As such, the cars were seized by authorities for investigation.
