Millionaire destroys Lamborghini in revenge

So, how would you deal with your new Lamborghini Gallardo breaking down after only six months? One Chinese owner, a millionaire called Mr Han, decided enough was enough, and paid a bunch of workers to batter the offending supercar to death with sledgehammers.No really. The incident took place in Qingdao city in China's Shandong province yesterday (15 March 2011), and comes after the Gallardo's owner had unsuccessfully written to Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann to complain. This Gallardo's troubles began on 29 November 2010, when it refused to start. Lamborghini Qingdao recovered the car, but not only did they fail to fix it, according to the owner the bumper and the chassis were damaged in the process.

As well as writing to Winkelmann, the owner also contacted Lamborghini China's HQ, the service-manager for Asia-Pacific and the Volkswagen Group. Failing to get a satisfactory response from any of them, he apparently decided to turn the whole debacle into a public spectacle, complete with film crews and bystanders.So, how many blokes does it take to destroy a Lamborghini? That's a question we'll never need to ponder again - it looks like as many as nine workers dressed in blue overalls and hard hats, and wielding big hammers will do the job very nicely.Oh, and the owner himself gives it a go at one point - when the chaps employed seem to lack a little enthusiasm. Bit of a waste if you asked us - it certainly looked like a nice car originally - but if you can afford to make this kind of point, well, good luck to you.

Mr Han
