The infamous story of the Felicity Ace Ship that sunk in the Azores, bringing thousands of cars down with it, has finally come to an end, but there’s no happy ending to this story.

All 3,965 cars are now at the bottom of the ocean, more than 3,000 metres underwater.

It was carrying Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bentley and Volkswagen models, including ID.4 electric SUVs and many supercars.

According to VW analysts, the cargo was worth $401 million.

The 60,118 t cargo ship named Felicity Ace was on its way from Germany to Rhode Island, crossing the North Atlantic Ocean near the Azores, when the cargo section caught fire on February 16.

All 22 crew members were evacuated by the Portuguese Navy, but Azorean authorities confirmed they couldn’t salvage the boat, nor could they tow it to a port in the Azores because the ship was just too big.

On March 1, Felicity Ace capsized and sunk.

Unfortunately for VW, there’s really nothing they can do because even if they managed to somehow retrieve the cars, which would be costly and difficult, most would probably be damaged beyond repair.
