Local supercars sleep with the fishes on Sunday

The supercar community in Singapore is a pretty active one and if you don't see groups of them parked together at some hotel, they're probably either in Sentosa or they've gone on their 'rounding' tour of the island.

Unfortunately though, Sunday wasn't exactly what most would call typical.

Heavy rains in the early morning caused flash floods that saw areas of Singapore, particularly the Bukit Timah area of the island, being submerged for most of the day.

So while normal cars like Toyota Vios's were carefully threading through the water, can you imagine what chance the supercar's would have had?

Stomp has a picture of a Maserati GranTurismo stranded in the waters off Orchard road and probably the most disturbing of the lot of pictures and videos being covered in the online blog sphere and on tv can be found on our very own My Car Forum!

Posted by one Mockngbrd, the pictures were taken in the undergound parking spaces of the St.Regis hotel.

Here's a link to the forum post.

For the benefit of those who are unable to see the pictures, the series of photos start with a one showing just how deep the flood water came benchmarked by a parked BMW X5 and the lift loby.

It then goes on to a kermit the frog green Porsche GT3 RS, then to a 'normal' Audi TT coupe with a glimpse of a vibrant shade of yellow and green at the corner of the same picture.

Both shades belong to two supercars parked next to each other which the next picture clearly shows.

One is the Lamborghini's Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera - a lightweight and more powerful edition of the Gallardo model. The other is the brand-new Ferrari 458 with a Novitec kit, believed to be the only one in Singapore right now.

The remaining two pictures show a limited edition Aston Martin Vantage V12 with the bonnet up and a random pick of luxury limo's from a Roll's to a BMW 7.

Haha very certain he owned the other two beauties as well....the G wag no problem la cleared the water level easily hahaha. I think maybe he didn't realise it'd be this bad and once the water level starts rising, starting his engine would have been catastrophic.
