Yesterday, I wrote about a woman who accidentally parallel parked her Mercedes-Benz on top of a Ferrari 458 Speciale. The key word in that sentence is *accidentally*.
In response, someone sent me a video of a similar thing happening… except instead of the Mercedes-Benz being the one on top, it was the car crushed underneath. By a tank. Oh, and on purpose.
This happened back in 2011.
Arturas Zuokas became infuriated with motorists parking their luxury cars illegally around the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. So the 43-year-old politician drove over this Merc in a Russian tank to set an example.
My guess/hope is that this was an intentional show and not some random person’s car, though I haven’t found any articles that say either way. But I’d love to have the budget to be able to drive over a luxury car with a tank.
(Actually, I’d rather just drive the car).
Here’s a video of what happened:
Notice, there was a Ferrari there at some point, so it could have had the same fate!
The key to it being a set-up: the driver accepts his poor parking job as a reasonable reason to drive a tank over his car.
