Gotta get rid of junk somehow.
This type of procedure will just become more common place in years to come too.
Vast majority of cars are just disposable tech now.
It would be good if there was some more narrative on the video, explaining in more details what the cars are, and why they are being dismantled. It's quite an old video, but still interesting none the less.
The cars in the video, whilst they may seem like old models now, were actually pretty much brand new. What are referred to as "pre-production" or "pre-pro" vehicles, which are built for engineering testing and homologation uses. They are only used by the factory engineers to check everything is working correctly, and doing it what it should do, before a new model or even a new feature or technical change, can be released into full production for sale. At the end of this testing the cars are only a number of months old, and have very few (if any) kms on them. So far from them being junk.
For technical and legislative reasons, although there is absolutely nothing wrong with the cars, they cannot be sold in most new vehicle markets. All the components are in effect "brand new" or "near new" but again they cannot be re-used in the assembly process nor as spare parts.This is why then get scrapped and recycled in this way.
This is why the title of the video refers to "fans will cry" as these are pefectly good, brand new cars that are being pulled apart and recycled.
