$42,806 Oil Change for a Lamborghini Murciélago
While you worry about the rising price of gas rest assured that your money is being put to BAD use. This article tells the tale of a Sheikh who paid $42,806 to have his car shipped from Qatar to London to get an oil change.
The 6500-mile round-trip is estimated to have cost him, $36,350 on top of the costs to have the car serviced. Handlers at London's Heathrow airport condemned the move, saying it would have been cheaper to have flown in mechanics to service the Lamborghini.
And Jenny Evans, of pressure group Plane Stupid, said: “This horrifies me. It is another example of how rich people exploit and pollute the planet because of their money.”
Friends of the Earth’s transport campaigner Richard Dyer said: “Flying a car thousands of miles for a service is ludicrous when planes are one of the most polluting ways to transport goods. We urge the individual to get their car serviced closer to home.”
