TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Rain floods Singapore's Orchard Road area, ruins supercars, luxury cars

For many Filipinos, Orchard Road in Singapore is primarily known as a tourist attraction. For Singaporeans, the area may as well be high-rise central with upscale condominiums--the kind where tenants own several luxury cars and a smattering of supercars.

One of those condominiums is the St. Regis Residences along Tanglin Road. Based on the photos at TNP.sg, that particular building might have a problem with the drainage system in its sub-basement 3 carpark. Apparently, a torrential downpour a few days ago resulted in a knee-deep flood that we're pretty sure damaged a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a handful of Audis and BMWs, an Aston Martin, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a couple of Maseratis.

While we're not sure if the BMW X5 could get out of the carpark under its own power, we're certain that the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen won't have that problem.

See more heartbreaking photos here. Don't say we didn't warn you.
