Some people have too much money. How do I know that? Well, while some of us can only dream about owning a supercar, others take them for granted. Nobody said that sports car owners had to polish their cars every day but treating it with a little bit of respect would help. Some sports car owners don't mind parting ways with their cars by abandoning them.

Who would've thought such a thing existed? Instead of selling or donating them to charity, some sports car owners decided to leave their cars behind on the side of the road, in barns and other imaginable places. We gleaned photos of these beautiful sports cars that owners decided to abandon.

This car is one of those hidden gems that don't come around often. It's a 1963 model that has a split window. How often do you see this? Some person apparently got tired of it and dumped it in the desert. It's been there for so long that the paint has peeled off. That's such a shame.

19 Lamborghini Miura

Between 1966 and 1973, Lamborghini built 764 Miuras. When the Miura came out, it was incredibly fast for its era. Many people said that it was the fastest production car at the time. Considering Miura was a limited edition and so incredibly fast, why would anybody dump it in a garage?

18 Maserati Quattroporte

The Quattroporte might not be the most famous sportscar to emerge out of Italy, but it has not failed to impress. Many people regard Maserati as one of the best sports car brands in the world.  The owner of this Quattroporte completely totaled the car and decided to leave it in the middle of nowhere.

17 Lamborghini Gallardo

Yes, I can understand that this man is shocked. I would be too if I found a Gallardo completely covered in dust. The Gallardo is Lamborghini's best-selling model. During the production between 2003 and 2013, Lamborghini sold more than 14,000 units. The Huracan replaced it in 2014.

16 Ferrari F50

Half a century anniversary only comes once in a lifetime, so Ferrari used the opportunity to produce a magnificent car to mark the occasion. The engineers came out with a beautiful specimen that pumped out 512 horsepower and produced only 349 units. They called it the F50.

15 Lamborghini Countach

Look into Lamborghini's history, and you'll discover that the Countach was one of the manufacturer's most successful models. Although Lamborghini produced just under 2,000 units, the company kept it in production from 1974 until 1990. If it's not going to be used, get this car to an auction asap.

14 Mercedes McLaren SLR

The German manufacturer wanted to team up with a supercar powerhouse to develop a sports car that Mercedes fans would be in love with. The collab between Mercedes and McLaren resulted in the SLR. The two manufacturers produced just over 2,100 units from 2003 until 2010.

Another beauty that's been left behind. It's been there so long that it's covered in dust. This is a 1966 model. There are Ferrari collectors who scour markets looking for classic cars like this one and would pay serious money for it. If you're not going to use a car like this, then sell it.

12 Lamborghini Diablo

If you were walking on this field when the Diablo was parked, then you would have had a field day, to say the least. If seeing a Diablo these days isn't rare enough, imagine stumbling upon an abandoned one in a field. Although the Diablo is rusted, a little bit of work would improve the condition drastically.

11 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS

Talk about a Ferrari that's hard to find. This stunner isn't only beautiful and rare, but it also pumped out plenty of power. The pictured Dino is a 1972 model, capable of pumping out 192 horsepower. All three of those cars are amazing, but the Dino 246 GTS is unbelievable.

10 Lamborghini Huracan

Owning any Lamborghini would be a dream come true for most men, especially a Huracan. This isn't just any regular Huracan; it's the LP610-4. What more could you possibly ask from a car? The Huracan has everything that a sportscar junkie could ask from such a vehicle.

9 Porsche Carrera 3.0

Many people believe that a Porsche is underestimated car. Considering that it provides a lot of power, unique design and a reasonable price for a sports car, they could be right. This Porsche is a 1977 model. Somebody parked it at the back and let it sit there for a long time - too bad.

8 Ferrari Enzo

Who wouldn't want to own one of the rare Ferraris of all time? It seems that one man doesn't. He left behind a car that Ferrari named after its founder to commemorate his efforts. Ferrari produced only 400 units and fitted a 6-liter V12 engine. One of them was for sale for $3 million, according to Top Speed.

7 Ferrari Dino 246 GT

I don't know what's worse - an abandoned Dino or an abandoned Dino that's also rusted. This Dino has seen better days. It's so unfortunate that the owner let such a classic deteriorate to the point that it's suitable for the junkyard. Such a sad thing to see, considering it's a Ferrari classic.

6 Lamborghini Diablo

via Twitter

Not only is the Diablo abandoned, but it seems like the owner abandoned the entire dealership. I guess he must've been in a major rush to leave that he didn't think of selling the cars before he left.  Diablo is Lamborghini's benchmark. Some models are more expensive than a Huracan.

5 Ferrari F40

via Motoring Box

When Ferrari celebrated its 40th anniversary, the Italian manufacturer wanted to produce a special car to celebrate the occasion. The result of their efforts was the F40. Ferrari produced just over 1,300 units to make it super exclusive. Top speed of this baby is 201 mph.

4 Porsche Cayman

via Roadtrippers

One thing that most people will never deny about Porsche is that the German manufacturer produces great sportscars at an affordable price. The price might be out of most people's budget, but a Cayman doesn't cost as much as other supercars. This one has been in the sun for too long.

3 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS

via LA Times

It seems like it just goes from bad to worse. First, we had an abandoned GTS, then a rusted, abandoned GT, now we've got a buried 1974 Dino GTS. Who would want to bury such a beautiful vehicle? The Los Angeles Times that it was in surprisingly good condition when discovered.

2 Jaguar XJ220

via Top Speed

Oh, man. Look at this. One of the best cars that Jaguar has ever produced, and it's on some dirt road and has a dented fender. Jaguar produced the XJ220 from 1992 until 1994. Not only was this car rare for Jaguar, but it was rare in general. The British manufacturer produced only 282 units.

1 Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta

via Pinterest

Now, this is a sight that you don't see every day. Imagine walking in a desert and stumbling upon a 166 MM Barchetta. This car was so unbelievably good that Motor Trend Classic had it at number six in their list of the ten greatest Ferraris of all time. That's a picture of a goldmine.
