For $400 Slight, Chinese Man Drops Hammer on His $423K Maserati
Michele Tantussi/Bloomberg via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — When you’re rich and upset, only then you can express your frustration with a car dealership by deliberately destroying your own Maserati.
However, that’s exactly what happened Tuesday morning at the Qindao Auto Show, according to the China Car Times. The unidentified owner of a $423,000 Maserati Quattroporte was furious with the Furi Group, the company that serviced his 2011 car.
The owner claims the company repaired his car with used parts costing nearly $400, and to demonstrate his dissatisfaction, the owner and his friends destroyed the car at the entrance of the auto show.
And this isn’t the first time this has happened at the event: in 2011, another disgruntled car owner had his Lamborghini Gallardo — which cost somewhere between $500,000 to $700,000 — smashed in protest of treatment at the hands of Lamborghini Qindao.
