MANILA, Philippines (KTRK) -- Watching luxury cars being smashed to pieces might be hard to watch for a car enthusiast, but it happened in the Philippines.
The country's president Rodrigo Duterte ordered that 20 luxury cars be demolished by a bulldozer because people smuggled them into the country without paying taxes.
The Philippine Bureau of Customs told ABC News that Lexuses, BMWs, Mercedes Benzes and a Corvette Stingray were some of the vehicles destroyed.
Duterte said he wanted to set an example for any other smugglers.
The cars were worth about $1.2 million.
