Where form meets function

The Taiwanese government has destroyed $380,000 Lamborghini Murcielago supercar, reportedly because its owner failed to provide the proper registration. Yes, you read that right, because its owner failed to provide the proper registration.

Car Buzz reports that the owner had the car confiscated by police two years ago for not having a registered license. He was initially issued a fine, but repeatedly appealed the court’s decision, infuriating officials in the process. Having rejected multiple appeals from him, the government simply sent the 632HP supercar to a scrap yard and ordered it to be destroyed — and destroyed it was.

The worst thing is, it’s not even satisfying to watch. It doesn’t get crushed into a nice little cube, like you might expect. No, it’s simply some dude in a smaller digger, repeatedly smashing and grabbing at the car’s bodywork. Watch the video above.

Meanwhile, this Ferrari is set to become the most expensive car in the world.
