A team of sledgehammer-wielding men in China pulverized a new Lamborghini Gallardo with the owner's permission, because he was fed up with a mechanic who repeatedly failed to fix an engine problem, the Daily Mail reported.
A businessman from the city of Qingdao in eastern China bought the souped-up Italian sports car in October for about $750,000, but that didn't stop him from reducing it to pile of scrap metal on Tuesday -- World Consumer Rights Day.
Subsequent arguments that Han had with the managers at the dealership and Lamborghini officials went nowhere.
Han, an entrepreneur with a wholesale lighting company, turned his personal frustration into a public spectacle. Crowds gasped as the demolition crew clad in blue uniforms and helmets totaled the car on the streets. At one point, the workers handed over the sledgehammers to the spectators and allowed them to join in the frenzy by climbing on top of the Lamborghini and smashing it.
