Vandal scratches the heck out of a rare Lamborghini Huracan Avio

Respect and anonymity — a couple of words that in today's Facebooky Twitterish word don't necessarily talk to each other that often.
The latter often comes at the expense of the former, more so than it's ever done in the past. And those who own nice cars are among those to find themselves in the firing line on a more regular basis.
Admittedly, having strangers disrespect your supercar is peak 'first-world-problem'-esque. But nonetheless as a petrolhead it's infuriating to see. Viral videos of strangers kicking the doors of Ferraris or skateboarding over Lamborghinis were particularly prevalent in 2017. New Zealand had its own cases too, including the case of a dense socialite who leaped onto a stranger's McLaren 675LT just to get a selfie.
The latest cringy case of very expensive vehicular vandalism comes from Bruge in Belgium. You know, the town that Colin Farrell hates with a passion.
It comes in the form of a scratched up Lamborghini Huracan Avio — a rare model limited to 250 editions worldwide, made as a tribute to the Italian Air Force — that was the target of a vandal or two. We don't know how many there were, since nobody has been caught.
The fact that this is a Lamborghini is no doubt why it's been picked up by the international media. And perhaps that was also a factor behind why the vandal/s picked this car out in particular as a victim.
But, whether it's a Lamborghini or a humble Toyota, doing this kind of damage to anyone else's car is far from wise. Especially for those who aren't fans of street justice repercussions.
