A manifest for the Felicity Ace cargo ship has revealed exactly which cars were lost when the vessel caught fire and ultimately sank into the Atlantic Ocean.

The ship made headlines due to the impressive cars it had on board when the fire broke out in February, with $30 million worth of Bentleys and hundreds of Porsches among the haul that was lost to the sea.

Insurance risk analysts at Russell Group MD later estimated the goods on the ship to have been worth approximately $438 million (£322 million), with $400 million (£290 million) of the value thought to come from the cars alone.

A manifest for the ship now reveals all the Felicity Ace held in its cargo, uncovering more than just the luxury cars we were previously made aware of.

As well as Bentleys, Porsches and Lamborghinis, the ship carried industrial equipment such as one self-propelled mower, seven winches and nearly 220,000lbs of used tractors.

Also suffering the sad fate of the Felicity Ace were five Volkswagen ID.4s, marked as 'test' vehicles, one 'test' Volkswagen Taigo, 83 Volkswagen Golfs, 50 Audi Q3s, Three Audi A4 Cabrios, 44 Audi A5 Sportbacks, 10 Audi A5 Coupes, 34 Audi E-Trons and 9 Audi E-Tron Sportbacks.

The manifest continued with Porsches listed under factory names, rather than models, revealing 126 Porsche 'Bratislava's, 23 Porsche 'Zuffenhausen 85's, 25 Porsche 'Zuffenhausen's with no number and 19 Porsche 'Leipzig 62's.

The lost luxuries didn't stop there, as when it finally succumbed to the sea the cargo ship took with it three Bentley Continental Flying Spurs, six Bentley Continental GTs, 12 Bentley Continental GTCs, 12 Bentley Bentaygas, five Lamborghini Huracans, six Lamborghini Aventadors and 10 Lamborghini Urus.

Other vehicles appeared to be privately owned, rather than having been shipped by manufacturer, as noted by Jalopnik. They included one 2015 Porsche Cayenne, one 2015 Ford Mustang, one 2014 Kia Soul, one 2018 Nissan Versa Note, one 2017 Volkswagen Jetta, one 2007 BMW 750I and one 1996 Honda Prelude.

Efforts to salvage the cargo ship were halted when the Felicity Ace sank on 1 March, with the Portuguese navy explaining the ship 'lost stability and sank some 25 nautical miles outside of the limits of Portugal’s exclusive economic zone' during the towing process which began on 24 February.

All 22 crew members on board the ship when it caught fire were evacuated with the help of commercial ships and helicopters.
