Gallardo Demolition

After complaints to the head of Lamborghini and Volkswagen failed to appease an owner of a 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo with his claims against the dealer whom he suggests made his problems with the vehicle worse by damaging the bumper and chasis, decided to hire a crew of men to destroy his vehicle on World Consumer Rights Day in China last month. This staged protest was a very expensive one (to the tune of $202-232,000 US dollars) and note this vehicle was purchased in October 2010. He must have assumed it was a sunk cost and had no value to him? I'm not sure.
The Gallardo costs £140,000 in the UK but more than three times as much in China where it would have cost the owner a staggering £465,000.


Makes you wonder does Lamborghini stand behind it's product? Or just it's dealers?
Before the massacre
Did Lamborghini even respond?
I think I'm going to be sick!
How much do you think the salavage price on this would be?!
