A Sinkhole Eating Up A Lot Full Of Italian Cars Is A Gearhead’s Worst Nightmare

Natural Disaster

Potholes aren’t the only reason to fix crumbling infrastructure.

Italy is home to the highest number of UNESCO World Heritage sites than anywhere else. The main reason for this is that the remains of the Roman Empire lie there and are preserved better than most other relics of past human civilization. The only problem is, much of the infrastructure in Italy is nearly as old as these UNESCO sites, meaning that water mains can burst and create huge sinkholes like the one we see here. The 650-foot wide hole caused unprecedented damage to the city's historic sites.

Watch and be happy that most of these cars seem like ones we don't mind losing, unlike rare Corvettes.
