This video is probably the worst thing you can watch if you love cars, heck it feels like losing a leg. At Least you get acquainted with Taiwan’s laws of illegally importing exotics. Because putting it in the impound yard was a little too cliche.
Instead, Taiwan prefers to be savage – the owner of the Lamborghini Murcielago SV in question here had failed to register the car through the system and display the plates. Although that sounds a little too mundane for the government to go and smoulder his Lamborghini, we’d like to come up with our own creative back-story.
I think the Lamborghini Murcielago SV belonged to a drug lord who had just been caught – and to show the world that crime pays, Taiwan decided to air the dismantling of his Lamborghini to the entire world. Hell, they even gathered a crowd too. Doesn’t that story sound a lot better than “illegally imported”?
This right here was a Lamborghini Murcielago SV LP670-4, packaged with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 661-hp and 490 lb-ft of torque.It’s also one of 186 examples built around the world.
I don’t understand why they wouldn’t just auction it and get all that money to good use.
This isn’t the first time they have done this though, apparently the Chinese have a fetish for destroying Italian exotics. Just check out these pictures of a public stoning with the Gallardo being the victim here.
