Hundreds of cars were damaged at a performance car dealership including Porsches and Audis.
A horrendous hailstorm erupted in the state of Colorado this week, and while there were no human fatalities, it left hundreds of cars with wrecked windshields in its wake. It’s a reminder to never underestimate the destructive power of mother nature. Drivers stuck in traffic in Colorado could only watch in awe as huge chunks of hail the size of golf balls pummelled their cars, denting bodywork and shattering windows and windshields. If your car is your pride and joy, you can imagine their torment - you can only hope they were insured.
Dash-cam footage and photos posted on Twitter show the extent of the damage caused by the vicious storm. According to KDVR, several high-performance car dealerships were also struck by the storm, damaging hundreds of vehicles. A Lexus dealer in Lakewood reported several of its cars suffered smashed windows from the storm.
Let’s hope no LC 500 sports coupes were caught in the crossfire. Prestige Imports, another dealer based in Lakewood which sells high-performance cars such as Audis and Porsches worth $200,000, also said that between 250 – 300 prestigious cars were damaged.
The storm also affected several homes and businesses, including a hospital and a shopping mall, which had to be closed due to flooding caused by the storm. Executives at windshield and glass repair companies must be rubbing their hands with glee.
