On 5 December 2012, the car carrier Baltic Ace sank with more than 1,400 cars on board after a collision with a container ship near the entrance of the main shipping lane leading to Rotterdam port. Rijkswaterstaat contracted Boskalis and its partner Mammoet Salvage for the wreck removal operation.

Love the clip at 4:30 ish, when the car is grabbed.
Reminds me of the grab a toy/sweets/pack of woobines grab they had at funfairs when I was a kid.

If only Lotus had made ships.
The recoiling bodywork would've been handy for the Baltic.
