    Man this lamborghini can take a beating ! 100's of sledge hammer swings and not much damage haha.The owner is an idiot.


    --------------
    If you?re a supercar-lover, avert your eyes.
    A disgruntled Chinese millionaire who clearly had enough of his expensive, but problematic, Lamborghini Gallardo took out his frustration by hiring a crew to destroy the posh car in front of stunned spectators.
    The cruel public execution took place Tuesday to mark World Consumer Rights Day.


    The driver, who bought the second-hand car in Qingdao for 1,900,000 yuan ($284,124 Cdn), became enraged after the engine failed to start last November.
    Further troubles ensued after the Qingdao Lamborghini dealership damaged the bumper and chassis while towing the lame car to the garage.
    To top it all off, the garage failed to fix the malfunctioning engine and the dealership refused to take responsibility for any damages.
    The driver reportedly tried reaching out to Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann. But after receiving no response to his appeals for help he decided to take matters into his own hands by hiring a demolition crew to dish out some public revenge on the Italian beauty.
    The man said he hoped the car?s ugly death by sledgehammer would send a message to carmakers that better after-sales service in China, especially for luxury cars, is desperately needed.

    Might be a good way to get some peoples attention I guess. But I have a feeling it won't stop people from buying these cars.

    "Looks like someone has a case of the Mondays!"

    But seriously, I would've just sold the damn thing and been done with it. His "final straw" approach could have at least brought some of the cash from the initial purchase back into his bank account. Seems like a waste to me.

    Hahaha. I like their little sledge hammers. They look like framing hammers with long handles. I have never seen such little sledges before. They must weigh 3 lbs.

    Never been a Lambo fan and kind've enjoyed this. They remind me of the Apple brand of cars--pretty on the outside, but otherwise constantly falling apart.

    I've seen rich people do worse things with their money :rolleyes:

    It would've been nice for him to make an event out of it and have people pay money to beat it up. I don't know if it's a Southern thing, but we do that sort of thing here for charity events and someone donates a car for people to pay like $5 to beat the sh*t out of.
