Most of us love our dream cars. Wash them tenderly and polish out their imperfections.

Not smash them to bits with sledgehammers.

But that’s exactly what a Chinese Maserati owner has done to his own $428,000 Quattroporte.

The act was a dramatic stand against bad customer service, with the Chinese man – who is only known by his surname Wang – hiring two other men to attack his car in front of a crowded motor show yesterday.

Wang reportedly took his Maserati, which he purchased in 2011, to a dealership in Qingdao, but became incensed when he discovered second-hand parts had been fitted to his car.

A long and bitter legal dispute with the dealership is said to have proceeded the protest, which Wang organised by contacting Chinese media and spreading the word through social media.
