This posting is just for fun, because like a dullard I was slow to react to the unveiling of the new Lamborghini Aventador.  However, seeing as I’m a massive fan of Lamborghini, and seeing as this is my blog where my rules apply, I’ve decided to showcase a gallery and two videos of the Aventador.  Enjoy the eye-candy!

As the motoring enthusiast you probably are, you’re bound to have seen the legendary Gallardo patrol car.  Well, I happened to come across some shocking images of its demise; so I thought I’d blog about it.  This happened quite a while ago, so it doesn’t qualify as news, but it is something worth revisiting.

The Gallardo LP560-4 was a gift from Lamborghini to the Italian State Police, fully kitted out with all that you may need as a police officer including guns, radar, video-broadcasting and GPS.  The official story is that the officer driving the supercar at the time of the unfortunate mishap, swerved to avoid a collision with a car moving in the opposite direction, forcing him to plough into a row of stationary cars.

The officers inside weren’t too badly injured, apart from a scratch and a broken rib here and there, but the Gallardo was not as fortunate.  Although it could be salvaged and repaired it would never be able to return to its former, criminal-menacing glory.

It saddens me to report that a Lamborghini Gallardo, one of my favourite cars of all time, has been taken out back and figuratively shot in the face – but literally taken apart by men wearing helmets and wielding sledgehammers.

Owned by a wealthy Chinese man, the Gallardo broke down after having had a service recently.  The only possible, reasonable action for this kind of thing is to hire a bunch of smash happy blue people to, well, smash the car up… Wait, what?

This was all part of a public protest for World Consumer Rights Day, and sadly it’s an event that probably won’t even get noticed by the world’s biggest companies any time soon.  A gruesome death in vain, if you ask me.  To remember the Gallardo as it should be, click here.

The Blue Man Group had to find new ways of venting their frustrations...
