Click above to view video after the jump


We received over a dozen tips about a hot video including a Lamborghini Gallardo (good start) and some aqueous material of the municipal kind, so we had to see the motion pictures for ourselves. We pictured a hot yellow Lambo crashing into a huge fountain, or some scantily clad young lady giving the Italian supercar a bath, but we got none of the above. What we did see is some guy using a blue bucket to transport water from a homely looking city fountain and dousing it on his prized Gallardo. To complicate the news-worthiness of the video, it looks like it was captured with a camera phone, it's shot from across the street, and the guy doesn't even seem very excited about saving $4 at the local car wash. But, you asked for it, so we've provided the video after the jump for your enjoyment (or indifference). Power to the people! Thanks for the tip, everyone!

      I live in NYC NY. Even though I want a Lamborghini really bad (who doesn't ?) I could never buy a car like that to drive around here. The potholes are killing me. I own a Chrysler 300 and a Mercedes S550. Potholes broke one of my benz's rims and cost me alot of inconvienience.

      As much as I'd love a Gallardo, I could never manage one here. :-(

      I'd really like a Murcielago.

      this way I can compete with my real estate/ stock buddies pushing the R8's.

        I know the dealership you're talking about. Its beautiful.

        I just got back from NYC. I saw some guy driving his F430 down Madison right between 45th and 46th. Just after crossing over 45th he nailed a huge pothole and ground his front bumper against the street. So sad...

        But I was really surprised when I saw the Ferrari/ Maserati dealership on Park and 55th (I think right around there). It was just there in the first floor of some skyscraper. Really cool since I've never seen a dealership like that.

      This is how you become rich!

      he probably stole coins from the fountain to pay for his parking too!

      What is even rarer than the Gallardo or an guy dousing city fountain water on it is the 93 Elantra in front of it. Haven't seen them in years and there's one in Italy. Cool.

      He actually paid for that Lambo with money he collected from that very fountain.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I always thought Lamborghinis were 'cleansed' with bottled 'Crystal', not 'washed' with tap 'water'.

      ...This is big news to me.

      (He probably lost his guarantee, thought ;))

      Eww...that's not how you wash a Lambo..
      • 6 Years Ago
      He runs like a girl. See for yourself at 0:23.

      Seems like an awfully weird thing to do, even for a normal car.

      Actually I think the guy isn't the owner.
      You know how some homeless people wash your windshield right?
      Well , I parked my car in the area where this was shot and when I came back , some hobos were asking for money because they washed my car.Soooo...
      And It's actually a huge trend to pay alot for a "deluxe" carwash in romania.
      Of course as someone pointed out there are lost of guys who buy expensive cars and put in 10$ worth of gas. Lambo is THE worst choice for this country considering how the streets look.I'm talking trenches here!

      Maybe this guy borrowed his rich friend's car and put more miles and grime on it than he had wanted?!!
      • 6 Years Ago
      There are limits bra. If I saw there was a little brake dust on my 1/4 panel I'm not going to whip out my c*ck & piss the dust off. That's basically what that fountain water is. Come on bra.....really!
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'd be willing to bet my life that guy is not the owner. If I am right then we should all find him and beat him with sticks.
        • 6 Years Ago
        LOL. Agreed.
        • 6 Years Ago
        What Lamborghini owner carries around a bucket for washing bird crap off the car? Bird crap generally needs to be scrubbed to get off anyways.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Well, it might actually be the owner trying to wash off a heaping helping of bird sh!t. He is parked under a tree, and we all know what that stuff can do to a good finish.
