This Chinese auto pound takes very good care of your towed Bentley… Said no one ever!

In most places, when you have your car towed, you have to pay police taxes, but any damages caused to your car can be charged on the ones that have towed and stored it. Apparently this is not what happens in Chengdu, Sichuan, in China. These photos have been taken by iFeng in its auto pound and show how badly towed cars are treated there. Even if the towed car is a Bentley Continental GT. According to reports, there is even a Flying Spur in the same auto pound. But we cannot see it in the pictures. Only a Land Rover Range Rover Vogue HSE.

It is “parked” among bushes pretty close to the Continental GT. Or the bushes have grown around the cars, we are not very sure.

These cars have been confiscated from people who are currently being sued for criminal activities or because the cars have a suspicious origin, such as illegal importing, for example.

Treating them badly must be part of the punishment, even if their owners are found to be innocent.

There are older cars among the bushes, even if we suspect they were new when they were confiscated.

For car lovers, it is a pity to see these towed cars in such a calamity. Chengdu would better sell them, preserving their value, instead of trying to plant them to see if a Continental GT tree gives them more Bentley. That will definitely not happen, guys…
