Millionaire destroys his Lamborghini in revenge

    incident took place in Qingdao city in China's Shandong province on 15 March, and comes after the Gallardo's owner had unsuccessfully written to Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann to complain.

    We can tell you that 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.

    While this car costs £150,000, import duties and other taxes mean that the car costs around three times that amount in China. But if publicly taking revenge on Lamborghini for ignoring his complaints was uppermost in his mind, he may have succeeded: the story has travelled far and wide across the world.

    I hope people will realise that EVERY manufacturer in the world does make a few lemons now and then. Not just one particular manufacturer.

    Lemon - a defective car that is found to have numerous or severe defects not readily apparent before its purchase.

    This brought international attention to how much a reputed car maker cares for its customer's problems. Car makers still dont think "customer is the king, they think customers can be easily fooled.
