Lamborghins were once the world’s fastest selling cars, and now the Italian manufacturer has finally had enough of its success.
The news came to light this week after the owner of a Lamborghina truck, named in the book The Lost and Damned, published in 2013, was found dead in the truck.
The truck was owned by a former Lamborghin dealer who was also the owner and driver of the truck, which was later stolen.
“The truck was a very old one,” Lamborghino spokesperson Giancarlo Di Bonaventura told Reuters.
“We have no information about the cause of death.”
According to Di Bonapartura, the truck was stolen in 2013 in a crime that was believed to have taken place in Italy’s second-largest city, Rome.
He told Reuters that the truck belonged to the man’s wife, and that he had left the truck with her when he left for work one day in October 2013.
“He was not able to return home, so he decided to buy a truck and leave his wife behind,” Di Bonava told Reuters by phone.
Di Bonavents wife, who worked as a cab driver, had been staying with her mother-in-law, and they had returned home after work one night to find their truck in the driveway.
“When they saw the truck in their driveway, they were shocked and panicked,” Di Campaventuras wife told the news outlet.
“It looked like someone had just hit a truck with a car.
It was very dark.
It looked like a crime scene.
I had never seen anything like it.”
According the police report, a passerby called the police to report a suspicious vehicle.
“The driver, who was in his 60s, told the police that he was going to sell a Lambo in Rome,” the police officer wrote in the report.
“He left his wife’s vehicle behind and went to a nearby shop.”
According and photos posted to Facebook, the owner left the car behind with his wife and the police arrived shortly after.
“There were some stains on the truck,” Di D’Antonio told Reuters of the damaged truck.
“I left the vehicle with my wife because I didn’t want to hurt her.”
The owner and the wife have not yet been found, and Di Bonana says that police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The news comes on the heels of an attack in which a man drove a van into a crowd of people in Nice, France, in early June, killing 86 people.
The attack was the deadliest in France in years.
The van driver, Ayoub El Khazzani, was shot dead by police in front of his wife, her 3-year-old daughter, and three friends.
