More GXPs' that have gone on to the afterlife

I'm pretty sure that these are recent and not re-posts. Maybe Joe can document their fates in the GXP Registry. Two of the three will start (but that's little consolation ):

2009 LR A6 G8 GXP
#986 of 1829 produced
#60 of 81 as optioned

Those are 3 sad pictures.
Hopefully someone will step up and put them back on the road again.
Salvage/rebuild title will suck though.

Sadly they all have been hit very hard they would make great doners for imported Utes or Wagons from Down Under....IF they were priced right but the blown air bags would be a problem the Australian air bags don't comply with US Regs....

The g8 has got to be one of the safest cars out there. Everytime I see one totaled the passenger area looks fine. I totaled my first one hitting a center divider at 65 head on after hydroplaning. The car was done but I was fine other than a wrist burn from the air bag. I guess it has good crumple zones or something......they sure do that when they get hit!
