Lamborghini Gallardo, battered

Chinese man destroys his own supercar with sledgehammer, invites others to join in

Quote:
Welcome to Qingdao, in Eastern China, where the owner of this supercar was so enraged after it broke down after a service, that he paid a group of blokes to take the car apart using sledgehammers before a crowd of rightly horrified onlookers. It was all part of a public protest for World Consumer Rights Day, an event likely to resonate with world's biggest companies as loudly as World Donut Day or World Handwashing Day.

I don't even know what to say to this... Consumerism at it's worst?

No, its called having the money and balls to tell a company to go **** yourselves. The dealer nor Lambo took care of this customer. He felt neglected and surely will buy a Ferrari or Lexus LFA or something else in the future and tell everyone his horror story.

Its the principle!

I'm all for principles, but that's a horribly wasteful way of displaying them!

and what did it do besides him losing his $150k? Nothing. Lambo was laughing all the way to the bank. Now they won't have to deal with him bringing it back to the dealer for a correct repair.. What an moron

New Mustang is a WIN! New Challenger another win! The Nissan GTR (though out of us working humans price range) a Win! The new Camaro=FAIL. Give me a 68 Camaro any day though. The Vette, I dont know, the Nissan GTR killed it in R&T tests, as it also killed the Shelby. But for an american modern muscle yeah Mustang and Challenger! I just hate the new Camaro for some reason.
