High-price sports cars can be infuriating.

Yes, they are dreams to drive, but they also can catch fire, veer into ponds or impale pedestrians on their hood ornaments.

Sometimes it is almost enough to make you want to toss them in the junkyard–if only they weren’t so expensive. Yet one angry Chinese Lamborghini buyer has done just that.

According to news reports and auto blogs, a millionaire in Qingdao, on China’s northern coast, bought a Gallardo (price up to $700,000 in China) last November. Six months later, the engine wouldn’t start. The car was transported to the dealer, who allegedly didn’t fix the problem but dinged the bumper and chassis during the trip.

The irate owner tried unsuccessfully to get the problem fixed, to no avail. He escalates his case all the way up to Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann, but apparently the dispute wasn’t resolved.

So on March 15, World Consumer Rights Day, the Lambo owner hired a team of guys with sledgehammers to destroy the car in public. You can see the video here.

A spokesman for Lamborghini said the company solved the owner’s problem and that the owner smashed the car “for reasons that are unknown to us and that are independent from his relationship with Lamborghini.”

What is the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought and smashed?
