Man hires workers to destroy his Lamborghini

March 18, 2011

QINGDAO – One man went to the extreme of having his Lamborghini Gallardo, an Italian supercar, destroyed in public on World Consumer Rights Day three days ago to show his dissatisfaction with the carmaker’s services.

He even recorded and broadcasted the event live on China’s micro-blogging service, Weibo.

According to an online user on video-sharing website Youtube, the businessman from Qingdao, Shandong province in China, said the engine of his sportscar, a Lamborghini Gallardo L140, failed to start on Nov 29, 2010, just six months after he bought it.

The report said he contacted the Lamborghini dealer in Qingdao and a trailer of a maintenance service provider was sent to deliver the car to a workshop.

However the businessman found out the problem was not resolved when the car was returned. Worse, the bumper and chassis were also damaged, probably during the towing, according to the report.

When the owner pointed out the problems at the workshop, they denied any wrongdoing, the report said. The owner then tried to escalate the issue to executives higher up in the corporate hierarchy but "no one took responsibility for what had happened", the report said.
