The owner of the repair shop is going to cry until he shits.

Shouldn’t the places authorized to repair this car usually be agents or after-sale services?

Asking for the truth.

谁抢了Bosh的篮板 [网易广东省江门市网友]:

I reckon [the driver] must’ve gotten too excited stepping on the gas~~ So this car is still be so stable even at 200 [km/hr]~~

入色入味 [网易江苏省镇江市丹阳市网友]:

With this, this guy’s family is going to be ruined.

If this fancy car belongs to the son of some government leader, wouldn’t this [incident] get the leader exposed?

Expensive cars are indeed different, so tough.

This is fate, nothing you can do about it.

腾讯网友 只做白日梦滴:

What? Driving without a license is called test-driving? Sigh… even if he had a license, he’ll still be spending a few lifetimes paying compensation.

腾讯网友 285460174:

I think if this mechanic also died in this incident, it would be the best ending for him. If he doesn’t die, words cannot describe the life he is going to face.

腾讯网友 风帆:

It has never occur to you people that he’s just a scapegoat for a rich person who has gotten himself in trouble. Would the boss of a repair shop carelessly ask a mechanic without a driver’s license to go test-drive a car? Don’t be fooled by this fake news reported by a transportation department that can be bought off with money. Ask them to tell you who the owner of this car is and you’ll immediately know the truth! Sigh…

腾讯网友 箜汕丽影:

Suspicious points in this case: 1. (Shops capable of repairing a Lamborghini should be big repair shops! Their management ought to be very strict.) Would the boss let an employee without a driver’s license drive such an expensive car? 2. Even if he would, would [the employee] drive this fast?! Hitting and sending a motorcycle flying dozens of meters!

腾讯网友 yan:

A bitter fate. You simply weren’t destined to harness this famous car that does not belong to you. Sadhu, sadhu.

腾讯网友 ②β灬圊哖ゞ:

Very good, the repair shop will have to pay compensation for this, and once it does, it’ll be returned to its state before the liberation [become so poor that it’ll be like China before the Communists took over].

腾讯北京市网友 有花无酒:

The last picture [the 3rd picture in this post], what’s the brand of the car at the lower left corner? So long… Experts, enlighten me.

腾讯深圳市网友 Always try.s: (responding to above)

Audi A7.

腾讯漳州市网友 神马都是浮云: (responding to 有花无酒)

Clearly it’s either a Lincoln or an Audi.

腾讯网友 火柴頭:

With no license? Is it a new car or an illegal one? Would a new car be sent into a repair shop? Would no one intervene if an illegal car was on the road? Is money really capable of doing anything?! What about in the future I also don’t apply for a license plate number when I buy a car? Or is it always the mechanics who are to be blamed whenever incidents happen?? Ha ha! In my opinion, “mechanic” is going to be a new excuse after “temporary worker”!!

腾讯网友 允許、被你愛:

It is the car owner who must be depressed, [because] the mechanic doesn’t have money [to pay compensation].
