Didn't a ship full of BMWs, including a few ED redeliveries capsize a few years back?

It was the Norwegian Tricolor and was carrying BMW, Volvo and Saab.

And one possible slight twist on this is that the Miata MX-5 with the retractable hardtop is close to release, so it is possible that the ship has a substantial number of those onboard timed to get to the dealers for the release.... :eek:

Speculation, but potentially interesting.... as the advertising campaign kicks off: NEW! See the amazing new car at your Mazda dealer! Uh, well....ummm... see photos of the new car because the first batch of cars sank at sea. :(

When the European ship sank the manufacturers didn't want the cars salvaged for parts. I don't recall what was done with the cars once they raised the ship, which I think they did.
I wonder what will happen to all these Mazda's? Budget deals down in TJ? Cut up for parts?
