The following video will definitely trigger a deja-vu sequence among many of our readers; an expensive Italian luxury car destroyed with sledgehammers in China. Yep, we’ve seen that before.
The only thing different between the 2011 video and the new one added after the break is the car, as the Lamborghini Gallardo is now replaced by a Maserati Quattroporte. However, the reason for which the owner hired some…muscleto destroy the car is the same: poor servicing.
The previous-generation Quattroporte owner complains that his car was “repaired” by the official Maserati distributor in the Qingdao area (Furi Group) using second hand parts, although he paid for new parts. Furthermore, he had several issues with the $423,000 (€328,000) car that were never solved. As a consequence, he decided to smash the car with sledgehammers at the Qingdao auto show in China.
He said he was inspired by the Lamborghini owner who used the same method to destroy his car two years ago. He even used the same venue – the Qingdao auto show. This seems to be turning into a trend now, so who knows what car will be destroyed at next year’s exhibition?
