On Wednesday, a 2013 Aston Martin Rapide went for an unexpected swim in China. The driver was on city streets in the Xiamen Province when a flash flood suddenly submerged the car up to its wheel arches.

The real kicker here is that in China, thanks to current exchange rates, a new Rapide will cost buyers about 3.88 million Yuan, or approximately $620,000, which is roughly $400,000 above what it would cost in the U.S.
