The Index Today

A Volkswagen spokesperson has revealed that a ship transporting several hundred Porches, Bentleys, and Audis to the United States from Germany went up in flames off the coast of Azores Islands in Portugal.

The ship bound for Davisville, United States, was travelling across the Atlantic Ocean from Emden in Germany.

The Portuguese Navy has assured that none of the 22 crew members were hurt and had been moved to safety when the ship caught fire.

As per their respective carmakers, about 1,100 Porches and 189 Bentleys were on the ship. However, the conditions of the cars remain unknown.

Although the cause of the fire remains unclear, lawyer James Turner contends that electric flaws are one of the common reasons for fires onboard.
