Lamborghini Murcielago Just Got Destroyed In Front Of Its Owner
The legendary Lamborghini Murcielago is one of the most hyped and most liked supercars in the world. The Murcielago, which translates to "bat" in Spanish, was named after a legendary fighting bull that survived after 90 blows from swords. Sadly, this specific Lambo did not survive the beating it got from heavy machinery, and only the owner is to blame for the innocent supercar's fate.
Taiwanese Law Mandates Destruction Of Illegally Imported Cars
Taiwanese officials shred the limited edition Lamborghini Murcielago because it had a fake license plate. Apparently, the owner of the supercar illegally imported the car to Taiwan several years ago. The decision to crash the vehicle followed after a three-year squabble and a series of failed appeals against the destruction of the car. Unfortunately, Taiwanese laws did not allow the vehicle to be re-sold and that it has to be destroyed.
Posters of the Lamborghini Murcielago can be found in almost all rooms of teenage boys from the early to late 2000s. It has been a legend that most can only dream of buying, driving, or even seeing in person. This supercar is one that can truly rival the likes of Ferrari or Bugatti. The Murcielago was the successor to the ever-famous Diablo and was senior to the newer Aventador. The Murcielago is capable of hitting the zero to 100-kilometer mark in a mere 3.8 seconds with its 630 horsepower 6.5liter engine.
Obey The Law If You Really Love Your Car
It's a shame that a limited edition vehicle, that its creators spent months or even years perfecting, can be destroyed in just a few minutes. The Lamborghini Murcielago cost around $350,000 dollars in the United States and only 4,099 units were built between 2001 and 2010. This is a lesson for all car enthusiasts to stick to the law to avoid regrets. Money cannot always buy the government, and this incident is a good example of diligent officials that refuse to be sell-outs.
