No Bubble: Owner Hires Crew To Wreck His $289,000 Gallardo In Protest Against Chinese Consumer Rights

Tyler Durden's picture

This one goes both in the "WTF", "no Chinese bubble at all" and "GDP boost through destruction" bins. MSNBC reports of a Lamborghini owner in China who hired a crew on World Consumer Rights Day to smash his $289,000 Lamborghini Gallardo L140 in protest after allegedly disputing with the company on maintenance and engine issues. The protest was made to provoke public support and goad the manufacturer to respect his consumer rights. Yet at the end of the protest the world is sans one Gallardo, a credit billionaire couldn't care less, and nothing has changed. Yet somehow we are certain Thomas Lee from JP Morgan will find this act of wonton destruction as contributing 0.001% to China's 2011 GDP.

2000 media 'guests' at $300 a pop for the gala show and bingo, a new Gallardo in the bag. Just a thought.

Bought a Ferrari F430? You have not even seen and felt customer abuse until you have to deal with Ferrari 'service'. And parts costs, let alone lack of availability of critical parts for some models, forgeddaboutit! Seriously, if you love abuse by a motorcar company, then by all means get a Ferrari... and hope is does not burn to the ground as they tend to do (check YouTube, plenty of videos... and Ferrari denied their new model spontaniously combused until quite a few did so... and this is a NEW DESIGNED model we are talking about!).

All the above is so VERY true.

before 1998 -1999 every new Ferarri leaked oil... everyone of them save the F-40 / F-50..

NidStyles's picture

The F-40 had issues with their bearing's having insufficient oiling. I think that's worse than leaking oil.

JW u drive a bimmer? Where in FL u at? My old ACS M3 widebody got rear ended by a 3time drunk driver going 90mph in FL. My baby saved my life :(

Oh regional Indian's picture

poor baby, sick are you?

Here, like cures like:

If you want more, just ask.

Freaks, come to a "free-speech" site, spew their own stuff and complain when others do. 

My baby got rear-ended. Fucking body-shop queries.


Here, have a this too:

Face your screen now, since your brain is clearly in your ass (which your baby saved, ohh, baby..... mechanical fixation, real world un-glued, clearly you do live in FL).

The Japanese GP is in October. The Chinese and Malaysian GP's are in Apr. As far as I know the races are on.

The reason Lamborghini diversified from tractors into sportscars in the first place was because of Ferruccio Lamborghini's unhappiness with how Ferrari was handling his 250GTs' cluch problems. But of course Ferruccio (with his own factory just down the road from Modena) had the inside track, so he was able to get abused face-to-face by Enzo Ferrari himself.

Koenigsegg, amazing car, hopefully they make Saab worthy of the Saab name again.

Seems like the only reasonable thing to do to a Gallardo.

IQ 145's picture

 wow, that's a really unhappy car owner.

theXman's picture

No, most likely one of those Shan Xi coal mine owners who are known for their flamboyant ways of flounting their ill-gotten wealth. They are so rich and powerful, some of them even share mistresses with high ranking party leaders and military commanders.

This world deserves to die in fire.

+ 1  Best line I've heard all day, thanks.

MachoMan's picture

Fuck your generalizing ass.  If you have a death wish, then go drive your suicide machine...  but stay the fuck away from anyone else that has any desire to live.

VeloSpade's picture

Listen up Macho maggot faggot man;

The world needs to depopulate and/or undergoe major lifestyle changes in order for any resemblant return of the good life that most of us once had.  Let the dying begin, starting with you.

MachoMan's picture

You might be able to coerce someone else (the government) into doing it, but you, individually, will have to pack a lunch.  I'm just curious how you and the poster before you were decided to be the arbiters of who lives and who dies?  Can you explain, in three (3) sentences or less why your life is more valuable?

VeloSpade's picture

I enjoy great debate and intelligent intercourse, but I do not buy into scarecrow fallacies.  I never claimed my life to be more valuable than another nor did I declare that I am or should be an arbiter judging who lives/dies.  This is three sentences.

MachoMan's picture

So you didn't say that I should be the first to die?  This was based upon....  Am I missing something?

I take this to be some murder suicide proposal?  Whereby I am the first to die and you quickly thereafter?  I simply refuse to believe that you picture the world without you in it...  In other words, if you really want to depopulate the earth, lead by example, don't kill those of us who want to live.  I'm entirely suspicious of the world dying so you can return to the "good life".

VeloSpade's picture

Yes, that is correct, I never said what you just said I said.

Yes, you are correct again, and you most definiteley are missing something.

Refusing to beleive that people picture their world without being in it will not change the fact that many people in fact do. 

Narcisists do it all the time.  They are a perpetual tourists who live among us, witnessing a world before them without actually ever becoming a part of it.

MachoMan's picture

So you didn't say, "let the dying begin, staring with you"?????  Am I gonna have a heart attack or get hit by a bus?  How do you know it will start with me if you're not going to be the one doing it?

BigJim's picture

Machoman, maybe you should lay off the steroids - they seem to be affecting your sense of humour.

"The world deserves to die in fire" was a humorous cri de couer at seeing a perfectly good Lamborghini getting sledged. Jeesh!

MachoMan's picture

Cycle on, cycle off...  I don't do steroids, but have quite a few acquaintances that do...  I have never seen any evidence of roid rage.  I don't plan on doing steroids until I actually need to (either hit natural max body utilization or get old and need to compensate).

How do you go from beating the hell out of a lambo to declaring that the end is near and the world needs to burn in a fire?  Plus, I don't particularly care for the defeatist attitude...  We have a really, really long journey ahead.  It's not going to be fun.  Don't take the easy way.

Are you on Ritalin / Adderall or some other kind of ADDHD-LMNOP... medication?

SARCASM 1: a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain 2: a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual


Seriously though, if your above responses are indicative of your inductive/deductive reasoning processes, then living for you will be more of a painfull loss than death itself.

MachoMan's picture

What the fuck are you talking about?  You got called on your bullshit of stating that I needed to be the first to die for depopulation purposes...  fuck off with your billy madison, nonsensical response.
