Lamborghini brutalised in China

17 May 2012 No Comment


We posted a picture up on our Fanpage the other day of a Lamborghini in China being destroyed by a couple of people that seemed to be demolition workers of some sort.
Here is the full story:

A millionaire in Qingdao, on China’s northern coast, bought a Gallardo (price up to R5 810 377 in China) last November. Six months later, the engine wouldn’t start. The car was transported to the dealer, who allegedly didn’t fix the problem but dinged the bumper and chassis during the trip.

The irate owner tried unsuccessfully to get the problem fixed, to no avail. He escalates his case all the way up to Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann, but apparently the dispute wasn’t resolved.

So on March 15, World Consumer Rights Day, the Lamborghini owner hired a team of guys with sledgehammers to destroy the car in public. You can see the video here.

A spokesman for Lamborghini said the company solved the owner’s problem and that the owner smashed the car “for reasons that are unknown to us and that are independent from his relationship with Lamborghini.”
