What are these cars and why are they sold? Well to put it across in simple terms these are the cars which are confiscated by the government on the context of foreclosure law. These cars generally end up in the garages owned by the government if the owner fails to pay the full loan amount or if the owner has used it for incriminating activities.
To answer the second part of the question as to why are they auctioned; the answer is that the government has to spend a lot on these vehicles for their maintenance and the longer they stay in garage their condition will get worsened more and more. Hence, to get rid of all the overhead costs they have to sell it off. Moreover selling off helps to recover their pending loan amount.
