Thousands of Reacquired Volkswagen and Audi cars sit in a desert graveyard near Victorville, California.


Shocking images have emerged showing lines of cars stretching out as far as the eye can see in the Californian desert after Volkswagen was forced to buy back 350,000 cars for $7.4billion over the diesel scandal.

The German automaker has been forced to get creative when it comes to responsibly storing the hundreds of thousands of vehicles they had to buy back.

Storage lots include a shuttered suburban Detroit football stadium, a former Minnesota paper mill and the desert site near Victorville, California.
'These vehicles are being stored on an interim basis and routinely maintained in a manner to ensure their long-term operability and quality, so that they may be returned to commerce or exported once U.S. regulators approve appropriate emissions modifications,' she said.

While it was originally suggested Volkswagen may scrap the hundreds of thousands of cars for parts, it now appears that the manufacturer is hoping to return them to the market once they meet emissions guidelines.

But it may be some time before stung customers rush out to buy another VW.

In total, VW has agreed to spend more than $25 billion in the United States for claims from owners, environmental regulators, states and dealers and offered to buy back about 500,000 polluting U.S. vehicles.
