In July, at a ceremony gathering attentions of television cameras and media, his administration implemented a big gun about crushing 30 smuggled cars. This time, it comes more disastrous as 14 luxury vehicles (cost a total of around P27 million) were chosen to be the next car-crushing including the BMW Z1, Porsche 911 GT3, BMW Alpina B12, two-door Mercedes G-Wagen and Maserati Quattroporte.
