Storms struck Florida earlier this month leading to a flood-like situation. Following this, a video surfaced on the internet that showed a garage containing a premium collection of cars. The video was posted on Instagram by @florida_corvette_owners that showed a number of luxury and supercars damaged by flood water.

The video showed that the floodwater is being pumped with the help of a generator pump. It featured vehicles such as a couple of Rolls-Royce Cullinans, a C7 Corvette, many Ferraris and a Mercedes-AMG GT. One model appeared to be a Plymouth Prowler. Currently, the damage to the luxury vehicles is unknown though all the dirt and grime around the garage shows that the flooding was indeed serious. One can make out from the video that the Mercedes-AMG GT appeared to be sitting on top of a concrete divider.
