Instead of wrecking cars like this, they should stop the illegal doors from where people are importing. Damn stupid.

They should have sell it instead of killing such an exotic beauty. Pretty sad to see this, can't imagine the owner's condition.

Don't know what to say. Mindless act done by people trying to prove a point. Moreover, mindless act by the person to illegally import such a vehicle into a country. What did he think, he was not going to be caught driving such a vehicle which is very rare in any country. Still don't know what to say!!!

I worked in a scrapyard in Ireland for 5 years and tearing cars apart with a 21 tonne komatsu excavator every day was one of the most fun jobs I ever had.

The supercar was impounded when its owner - a pilot - was stopped at a check-point after officers noticed it had a fake number plate.Despite a series of appeals, the devastated owner has been unable to halt the destruction of the luxury car. The destruction of the vehicle ends a three-year legal battle to save it after the owner was stopped in 2013 in accordance with Taiwanese traffic laws.Ironically the Murcielago takes its name from a famous fighting bull which survived being stabbed with a sword 24 times. Italian manufacturer Lamborghini - which regularly takes its creations' names from bullfighting -  built just 4,099 Murcielagos, ending its run in 2010.

 

 

In a continuation of Lamborghini's tradition of naming its cars after stars from the world of bullfighting, the Murciélago is named for a fighting bull that survived 24 sword strokes in an 1879 fight against Rafael "El Lagartijo" Molina Sánchez, at the Coso de los califas bullring in Córdoba, Spain. Murciélago fought with such passion and spirit that the matador chose to spare its life, a rare honor. The bull, which came from Joaquin del Val di Navarra's farm, was later presented as a gift to Don Antonio Miura, a noted local breeder; thus began the famed Miura line of fighting bulls, and the name for one of Lamborghini's greatest designs.

Murciélago is the Spanish name for the bat. In the Castilian Spanish spoken in most of Spain the word is pronounced [muɾˈθjelaɣo], with a voiceless dental fricative [θ] (as in English thing). However, the Italian automaker often uses the Southern Spanish and Latin American Spanish pronunciation, [muɾˈsjelaɣo], with an  sound. Many people in Italy pronounce it [murˈtʃeːlaɡo], as if it were an Italian word.

OH MY GOODNESS...I DON'T HAVE WORDS... :( They could have put the car for an auction.

Relax, it's just a car, not exactly rare, you can go out and buy one today if you have the money. Although I do agree they should have auctioned it off and put the money to good use for the state. Or maybe they just wanted to send a strong message to others.
