In Kentucky, Your Lamborghini Will Get Pissed On

Illustration for article titled In Kentucky, Your Lamborghini Will Get Pissed On

A Lamborghini Gallardo owner who posts on Luxury4Play had the misfortune this weekend of having his exotic car showered on. Except instead of praise, it was with the urine of a drunk and/or envious passerby.


This led to an amusing anti-Kentucky screed followed by an anti-guy-who-owns-Lamborghini-in-Kentucky flame war. To the forums!

It all started late at night on April 21st when Gallardo Centurion parked his car at a supposedly "5-Star" hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. The poster looked down to see his car being used as an expensive Italian Port-a-John.

Passing through Louisville, Kentucky tonight. Checked into what they call a "5-Star" hotel here. Tipped Valet $50 for letting me park my Gallardo in a well lit spot right outside the front door.

Went to dinner and got back to the room about Midnight. Looked out the window (not having a clue that I would even see my car from there) and saw some dude with his girlfriend standing by the car. Then I saw a stream of piss come flying up all over the clear bonnet, spoiler, etc, then he ran off pulling his pants up.

Stay classy Kentucky... Continue to be the armpit of America for another 100 years. Lol. 10 years ago I would've ran down 5 flights of stairs, chased him down and ruined his life. Today, however I feel like its enough punishment that he has to live here and be one of the peeons(ironic) that makes it so easy for me to make money in this state (the only reason I still have a residence here). I almost vowed to never come back to this state and then it dawned on me that as long as they continue to be this ignorant I can run circles around all of them and make all of the money. True story.

Thank you to anyone who listened to my rant (now I can forget about it). I can guarantee that tomorrow afternoon when my wife and I are on our plane headed to our newest pad (possibly in the most tropical and chill location ever!), my new friend who pissed on my car will still be Kentucky white trash.


Speaking of bodily fluids, I can forgive the guy for wanting to release a little bile. Having your car pissed on for no reason (that we know of) is a crappy way to spend an evening. While most agree, some folks on Luxury4Play like sherdog19 didn't find the reaction quite so reasonable:

You own a gallardo in Kentucky?! deserve it. Anyhow, pee is sterile. Go whine about how this guy also takes your tax dollars to feed his family, too. Big deal. People will always be envious. Nothing new.

Ouch. And not fair. It's one thing to own a Gallardo in some poverty-stricken country, but Kentucky is… well... it's not Haiti. Here's the OP's response:

I apologize for anyone that I offended here and I wrote that angry at 2am. I am totally over it and I am not looking at this thread anymore, I just have 2 comments.

1. I'm shocked that anyone that would say that I "deserve" to have my car peed on because I live in Kentucky has no business being on any kind of luxury anything, including a forum. You are obviously just here to dream about luxury not to talk about living luxury so I don't expect you to understand.

2. I'm not sure where you typically valet your exotics, Ice350, but even in South Beach the Valets are pleased to watch your exotic for $50 and would most likely do it for nothing just for a chance to move it 50 feet, brag to their friends that there is a Lambo, Ferrari, Aston Martin, etc at their Hotel/Restaurant. I am very generous with $ especially gratuity. To think that the Valets were involved is ignorant.

Thanks for all comments and support. Like I said I won't be looking that this thread again.


There's a lesson here: If your Lamborghini gets pissed on, don't get pissed off online and not expect pissy forumites to respond.


Battery Tender Unnecessary

As someone who recently purchased a supercar and also lives in a area both similar and close to this guy, I thought I would chime in. Just for clarification, I am not what most consider the 1%, no where close. I'm single, childless, and hard working. I saved the majority of my disposable income for over a year to make sure I could cover the down payment and a year's worth of payments before doing the deal. And now, the bank and I jointly own it for the next 5 years, I didn't and couldn't have just written a check for the car. It's a been a dream since I was a child and I worked hard to get where I am. I'm not a car snob in any sense. Since buying it people come up to me a gas stations, restaurants, etc to take pictures of it and talk about it. I love cars, talking about cars, and the culture of cars. I wear jeans, a nice polo/t-shirt, etc. Nothing designer. I live modest apartment with a single car garage.

On to the area in question. People in this guy's area and mine HATE success. They literally loathe and despise people that have more than they do, no matter the merit. My father bought a Corvette convertible when I was a kid in this area. We went into a drug store and came out to find someone had thrown a couple of full ice cream cones into the seats. People in rusted out beaters will intentionally hit your car because they don't care about theirs. They have absolutely NO respect for another persons property. Worse, they automatically assume the method with which you make your money HAS to be illegal because that's the only way they think people can get ahead, never mind hard work.

The shift in attitude towards the car as you leave our area and drive to more "civilized" and built up areas is amazing. I drove 300 miles to visit a friend in eastern North Carolina during the break-in period. People there were nice, giving thumbs up, asking if their kids could take a picture in the car, just a pleasant experience all around. On the way home, people become increasingly spiteful, resentful, and aggressive. They are cutting you off, making rude gestures, and just being outright mean the closer you get to our regions. I had someone throw a baseball at the car while on the interstate.

My point is, yes, this guy went about complaining in a douchey way and he appears to exemplify the bad qualities we associate with the typical supercar owner, but not all of us just write a check for the car. Some of us worked hard to get it and appreciate that not everyone can. It's a shame you can work hard and make sacrifices to get want you want, only to have someone literally turn around and piss on it as with this case.
