Furious that a car dealership refused to compensate him after his brand new Land Rover spontaneously combusted, this car owner decided to take matters into his own hands the only way he knew how.
Incensed by the poor after sales care, the irate man, surnamed Yu, took a collection of his luxury cars down to the dealership in Shaoxing city, Zhejiang province and blockaded the entrance.
Shortly after he laid out a sign which read: “Million yuan car combusted after only 5 days, the dealership is cheating customers, offering no refund or exchange.”
According to Sina, the cars used to blockade the dealership include a 5 million yuan ($800,000) Rolls Royce and a 7 million yuan ($1.1 million) Lamborghini. But the most expensive of the lot was Yu’s replica Batmobile, which reportedly cost a whopping 10 million yuan ($1.5 million).
Journalists who managed to interview friends of Yu said that he was a self-made man, originally from Jiangxi province, who himself also owned a car dealership in Hangzhou. He had been planning to sell the Land Rover to one of his customers, at least before it went up in flames anyway.
After several hours of standoff the police were called and Yu was eventually forced to remove the several million yuan worth of cars form the premises. We’re assuming he still hasn’t had his refund.
