If a Valet takes a car and does this shit with it can he be charged with grand theft auto even though the key was entrusted to him? What sort of recourse would the owner have here? Certainly there is some kind of recourse to this. I'm pretty sure the valet has insurance to pick this up and will probably be forwarding the bill to the employee in the form of a subpoena.

No, he should have asked permission.

He had a job to do and he went for a joyride instead of doing his job, ruining another man's hard earned property.

I get the idea of having fun, i let kids sit shotgun in my GTR but for fuck's sake, you ask god damn permission.

>>14274363
Yes, because he only had permission to park the car. Anything beyond that is theft.

The company the runs the valet will pay. In this case, it's pretty obvious. But normally you can bet your bottom dollar they'll try to squirm out of it.

Tip of the day: if you EVER have to let a valet park your car and you're even slightly suspicious. Do not take your car back from them until you've inspected it. Once you get in your car, getting them pay for anything is nigh impossible.
>>
>>14274363
No

I've met three techs that have totaled customer cars and they are all still working, I doubt valets are any different, as long as you are sober worst case scenario you move onto the next dealership/business. Insurance is good for auto related businesses and the owners always come out ahead somehow when it comes to exotics.
>>
>>14274384
Yea and that "alpha" is going to be paying off the car for the rest of his life.

It's pure fucking stupidity. He would have been better off carjacking some cunt for a joyride, he would have more of a chance to get away with it.

>>14274399
Nah, he's going to get slapped with the bill for the insurance premiums.

They won't be paying the increased rates themselves.

Company doesn't pay shit normally. Whenever you valet your car the company/employee assumes no responsibility for the vehicle.

There's usually a disclosure you agree to and it's one the back of your valet card. You guys should read it some time. They could literally total your car and there's not a thing you can do
>>
>>14274399
Iv known techs who have totalled cars too but not from joyriding it around the block. One dude drove it off a lift, another dude drove it into a lift and another dude started one in gear and it jumped off a lift. That's a totally different scenario than taking some guys Lamborghini and revving it so hard it catches on fire.

Stop parking with fucking dollar lot valets. Reputable places will often force the valet company to pay if need be in order to maintain their reputation.
>>
>>14274410
I've had a valet ruin the front bumper on a 2013 Mercedes E350. It was at a big casino in Las Vegas and they paid for the whole repair so perhaps you have never used a valet.
>>
>>14274410
Generally a company will have insurance for instances like this. Neither the employee or the company is really paying, but really the insurance company pays the customer.

Source: I curbed some guys wheels at work and I didn't have to pay for shit but he got a brand new wheel
>>
>>14274410
That's not legally binding in the slightest despite what they say.

Also at the very least if you're going to use a valet keep a fucking dashcam hooked up.

>>14274476
Here in Texas, most hotels/restaurants outsource their valet to small LLC's. I've seen them shred a front bumper of a BMW and get away with it because of some clause on the ticket they hand you.

More often than not the person with the damaged car loses the battle should it go to court.

>>14274834
One where I work on exotics

A good example is the 355, there's an open recall on them because if one of the hose clamps on the coolant lines that go through the valley is installed any way other than it was from the factory it can rub against the fuel line and set the car on fire, the recall moves the fuel splitter up a bit. On mass production cars they put the new models through testing grounds for millions of miles in every condition, and do everything imaginable that a tech, owner, or anyone may do to the car, with cars that they only make thousands to tens of thousands of the vetting isn't as extensive, that's the main reason exotics catch on fire (aside from having big engines and tons of technology crammed behind the driver)
>>

You sound like those sjw idiots who know nothing bout law but act like you do.

>>14274908
>with cars that they only make thousands to tens of thousands of the vetting isn't as extensive

Honestly, why would it be extensive. the people who buy these cars have money to spare and couldn't care less about a 10k repair....in theory. If you have to worry about a repair bill, you really shouldn't be owning one of these things anyway.

That's probably what the companies making these cars think anyway.

I've revved the piss out of just about every vehicle I've ever owned from trucks to sports cars to motorcycles and nothing like this has ever happened. You lamborghini fanboy apologists are the worst. You don't see other half-million dollar supercars bursting into flames because they were revved in traffic, and literally all of them get this treatment.

1.most high end cars have a valet key. The 'owner'( may have been rented) didn't give the valet the valey key.
2. Lamborghinis, and really all italian cars, are known to burst into flames for no reason. blaming this on the valet is beyond ignorant.
3. A weekend house down the street's owner has an aventador.. good god the sound when he revs it, oh how it fills the neighbor.

If revving the engine was enough to kill the cat it wouldn't pass emissions.

>all the bearings
You fucking moron, the engine is designed to be revved hard and driven hard.

>dat heat cycling
There is not "heat cycling" caused by revving. Maybe some transients, but nothing anywhere near as close to the heat transient resulting from WOT acceleration to a speed which is then steadily held, which happens all of the time with a car like this.
>>
>he'd rather a push a lambo than drive a GTR

>>14274254
I don't own an exotic obviously, but even my car has an ECU tune program for valet use only for the rare occasion I have to use it. Limits engine to 4.5k and the speed to 45mph. Not that any valet is probably going to want to hoon a Golf R32, but It was only like $100 extra on the tuning package I got

>>14277854
Lamborghini design flaws. They burst into flames for no apparent reason regularly. It has something to do with clearances around the exhaust system and lack of heat shielding.

>>14277859
>not that hard
Wait, you ACTUALLY think that revving an unloaded engine is harder on the bearings than revving under load i.e. acceleration?
Justify your stupidity please.

>its easer to loose heat then gain it yes
>also bear in mind that the car is not moving
You're missing my point, you don't make much heat by revving an engine compared to accelerating hard, and you lose the heat slower at a standstill than at speed with airflow. "Heat cycling" is gaining and losing heat, not much heat is gained revving at standstill, and it is lost slowly. This is a gentle transient, not heat cycling.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but don't these kinds of supercars and luxury vehicles come with "valet mode" to prevent tard valets from over revving and generally treating someone's property like shit.

As I recall it locks the glove box and puts limits on the car so all it can do it slowly drive to the parking spot.

Depends on where. Some companies make people pay for the service, then you don't receive tips and are paid a shitty flat rate, usually less than $12/hr. Where the valet service is complementary, you live off of your tips and get paid like $5-7/hr, and can rake it in to the tune of $15-20/hr. Not bad for such a cushy job.
