Few Things Damage a Brand’s Reputation Faster than Poor Service
An angry Lamborghini owner in China has vented his frustration with the Italian prestige auto brand by employing a team of sledgehammer-wielding men to destroy his car.
The Chinese businessman was reportedly so disappointed by the quality of the service he received at an authorized Lamborghini mechanic on his US$650,000 Gallardo supercar he decided to have it destroyed in a very graphic protest of brand disappointment.
Whilst we can’t all afford a supercar to trash, we can all relate to the sense of being let-down by the poor service a brand has provided – especially when expectation levels of ultra prestige brands are set so high. Unfortunately for Lamborghini, this unhappy punter had a penchant for the headline grabbing dramatic, turning what may have been a letter of complaint into a global news story, trending Twitter topic and You Tube hit.
