Angry Italian destroys his Fiat 500 after it fails to start

Added in: Fiat

You have seen rich Chinese businessmen thrash their million dollar cars in public after being dissatisfied with the after sales-services. A similar incident was reported in Italy where a person smashed his brand new Fiat 500, which was bought hardly a week ago, as it failed to start in the morning. Surprisingly, he bought the car despite Consumer Reports naming the Fiat 500 L as the least reliable car on sale today.


The person has been identified as Spartaco Capon from Lissone, a city in northern Italy. After being warned for reaching late to office using public transport, he went ahead and bought himself a brand new Fiat 500. However, after the car failed to start in the morning, the 35-year-old driver then smashed his Fiat 500 with an axe.

Suspecting a case of vandalism, the neighbours called the police who couldn’t believe at first that he was the owner of the car. “Normally in incidents like this it’s not people smashing up their own car, but he was able to prove it was his,” a spokesman commented. “We think he must have been under a lot of stress at work lately and he was taken to hospital where doctors helped to calm down and are keeping him in for tests.”
