Curbing a wheel isn't the end of the world...except at Pebble Beach.
One of the best things about new cars is that they come with huge wheels. Remember back in the day when 20-inch wheels were only reserved for rappers? Yeah, nowadays those are commonplace on new cars, with some manufacturers offering even bigger options. However, the downside to this is that it makes it easier to curb and ruin a rim. Believe me, I would know. I’ve accidentally curbed the rims of several press cars and felt awful about it each time. But there’s no way I feel as bad as this Lamborghini Reventon’s owner.
This Reventon was brought to Pebble Beach to be shown at The Quail, an exclusive gathering of the world’s rarest and most expensive cars. Unfortunately the driver curbed the wheel’s carbon fiber “winglets.” This was apparently done the day before the show, which means the Reventon likely went on display with its parking-related battle scar.
