Unhappy Maserati Owner Destroys His 2.6 Million RMB Car

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

If you’re unhappy with your current car due to technical malfunctions I am sure you can relate to this Qingdao based Maserati owner whom after several years of unsatisfied ownership of a fine Italian steed decided to smash it to pieces outside the Qingdao Auto Show.

The owner is apparently unhappy with Furi Group, the company that are responsible for distributing Maserati in the Qingdao area, as they have been repairing his fine 2.6 million ($423,000USD) Quattroporte with second hand parts rather than the new parts he paid for and haven’t fixed all of the issues that he originally cited. At 10:15am this morning as the Auto Show opened, the owner and his friends took sledgehammers to the Maserati to prove their point

According to reports the Maserati was bought in September 2011 but in November that year it was back in the dealership to correct an issue, and without receiving authorization from the owner the dealership used second hand parts to fix the issue but charged the owner 2400RMB (390USD) for new parts that were covered in dirt according to the owners side of things.

The dealership or Furi Group have yet to make a statement, but we suspect that they wont be held hostage to an irate car owner who is crazy enough to smash up his 423,000USD car over a 390USD bill.

This isn’t the first time a supercar has been smashed up at the Qingdao auto show, in March 2011 an unhappy Lamborghini owner smashed up his own car at the Qingdao Auto Show to get media attention on the lack of attention Lamborghini China was paying to its customers in China – except the car owner bought his Lambo second hand from Germany according to our sources, so we fail to understand how Lambo China would be responsible for a car bought from overseas markets….

We cannot wait until next years Qingdao Auto Show!
