A list of all vehicles that were aboard the Felicity Ace, the transport ship that sank in the Atlantic Ocean following a fire, have surfaced (pun intended) thanks to an online data tracking website called importinfo.com. Sorting out all the information from the site shows that, along with all the vehicles you’d expect the Volkswagen Group to be sending to America, there were some unusual cars inside the ship, too.
By our count, there were 3,828 vehicles that were scheduled to be delivered after the fire occurred in February, which aligns with reports that the Felicity Ace could carry around 4,000 vehicles. That also tracks with a previous report, when Porsche said it had around 1,100 vehicles onboard.
Long after our fingers, toes and limbs were done, we also summed up that Porsche had 1,117 cars, VW had 561, Audi had 1,944, Bentley had 189, and Lamborghini 85 vehicles on the ship.
As for oddities, meanwhile, the first one to grab our attention was a 1996 Honda Prelude SiR. Top Gear NL found a Facebook post by the man listed as importing the vehicle, who claims that the car was just the 65th fifth-generation Prelude ever made and he was importing it to the U.S. to restore it. Even more frustratingly, due to “complications with insurance, the shipping company, and other factors,” he says he will get no compensation for the lost car.
But that wasn’t the only unusual vehicle on the ship when it sank. According to the manifest, there was also a 1977 Land Rover Santana, which is essentially a Land Rover Defender that was sent to Santana’s factory in Spain and assembled as a Complete Knockdown Kit. There was also a single 2007 BMW 750i, a 2015 Mustang, 12 Fendt tractors, and other oddities including a 2019 Mini Countryman that was being shipped in a wooden crate.
A number of the vehicles were bound for Mexico, which makes sense given that some were late-model SEATs, which aren’t sold north of the Rio Grande. There was also a Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 that was labeled as a “tourist vehicle.” Just what that means is unclear but we do know that Matt Farah had a Porsche Boxster on the ship, albeit one modified by DeMan to feature a 4.5-liter engine.
