It's worse than you can imagine.

A Fiat 500 was found brutally murdered by its owner this week in Lissone, Italy. According to police records, 34-year-old Spartaco Capon, the owner of the recently purchased compact car, became enraged after being unable to convince it to start properly, so he reportedly grabbed an pickaxe and began hacking away at the vehicle, before horrified witnesses.

With more than 100 holes in its exterior, the car was nearly unrecognizable.
