Chinese Man Destroys Lamborghini - Unhappy with Reliability _ Service.
A Lamborghini owner in China found himself displeased with Lamborghini's "legendary" customer service on his Gallardo. So he was left with a difficult decision: Get the car's problems fixed some other way OR hire a gang of men to smash his car infront of a large crowd and a video camera.

Rich Chinese man asks his employees to destroy his new Lamborghini Gallardo.
A Chinese Lamborghini Gallardo owner decided to have his supercar destroyed
in public, to show his dissatisfaction with the car maker%u2019s services.
The businessman from Qingdao, Shandong Province, says the engine of his
luxury sports-car, a Lamborghini Gallardo L140, failed to start on November
29, 2010, just six months after he bought it. As any other car owner would
do, he contacted the Lamborghini dealer in Qingdao, and the trailer of a
maintenance service provider entrusted by the dealer was sent to carry the
car to a designated maintenance shop. When his Lamborghini was returned,
the owner noticed the engine problem still hadn%u2019t been fixed, and that
the bumper and chassis had been damaged, probably during the towing.
When the owner pointed out the problems at the maintenance shop, they
denied his claims and simply ignored his consumer rights, so the owner
tried to work things out with Mr. Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of
Lamborghini%u2019s China division, with the auto-maker%u2019s after-sales
service manager for Asia-Pacific region, and even with brand owner
Volkswagen Group, but no one took responsibility for what had happened.
Under the circumstances, the outraged car owner felt there was only one
thing he could do.
He decided to hire a group of construction workers to publicly destroy his
faulty Lamborghini Gallardo L140 on World Consumer Rights Day, to attract
attention to the consumer rights problem in China. He stated that, in
recent years, the Chinese people have been more than capable of consuming
luxury goods, but international brands seek only to exploit the Chinese
market and ignore the interests and rights of consumers. He feels that, in
his case, Lamborghini failed to bring their famous high quality service to
China, and this was the only way left he could protest.
In China, a Lamborghini Gallardo retails for between $529,000 and $757,000,
depending on specifications.
rich chinese wedding
you will understand more if u know the price of each one of those cars.
in china Audi A8 4.2 cost 2Mil RMB which is about 300k USD,
F430 cost 300K USD
ALL of those cars in china cost over 200K USD.
in china if u can buy one Ferrari that means you can buy 2 Ferrari in
America, which means all of those car owners that driving the Porsche
Cayenne can buy a F430 in America any day.

Disgruntled Chinese Lamborghini Owner Destroys Supercar
A Lamborghini Gallardo was destroyed by a group of men in the Chinese city
of Qindao. The owner of the Italian sports car decided to smash it to show
his disappointment with Lamborghini.
The Lamborghini Gallardo was bought six months ago, but the engine failed
to start on November 29, 2010. The owner contacted the Lamborghini dealer
in Qingdao and they transported the Gallardo to their maintenance center.
The engine problem wasn't solved, but instead the bumper and chassis were
damaged by the transport. The owner complained by the dealer but they
refused to take responsibility in this matter, so the angry owner contacted
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, the brand's China headquarters, its
after-sales service manager for Asia-Pacific region, and the brand's owner
Volkswagen Group, but the problem was not solved.
Angry about the service, the owner felt his consumer rights were ignored.
So he decided that the best way to gain attention was to destroy his car on
the 15th of March, which is also World Consumer Rights Day. Apparently, he
hired people to publicly destroy his car with hammers and make his
statement. This protest was made to provoke public support and goad the
manufacturer to respect his consumer rights.
Destroy luxury cars
The government is set to destroy five sports cars that were among 25 luxury
vehicles smuggled into the country, Presidential Management Staff head
Cerge Remonde said Saturday.
The five vehicles include a Lamborghini, a BMW, a Ferrari and two Porsches,
all with an estimated value of P100 million.
Remonde said the five sports cars would not be auctioned off as earlier
planned since President Arroyo wanted to set an example by destroying the
vehicles -- live on national television.
They were among the 25 smuggled luxury vehicles seized by the Presidential
Anti-Smuggling Group headed by Antonio Villar Jr. at the Subic Bay
Remonde said Mrs. Arroyo is against auctioning the seized vehicles because
they could end up in the hands of the smugglers themselves.
"To show that we are very serious about this campaign, destroy these luxury
cars on nationwide television," Remonde said, quoting the President.
He said the President wanted the vehicles destroyed during her visit to
Subic within the week.

Heading up to Road Atlanta for the third, and final, day of the March 2011
NASA racing weekend, my friend and I came across this fantastic black
Murci! Even though it isn't an LP640, it still looks very menacing on road!
Too bad the owner was on his phone and not on the gas. ;)
Just wanted to say thanks to my good friend Ali, who filmed while I drove!
