They can afford the car, but not a proper tow truck?

What's the right way to tow a low/lowered car? When I had my car towed before I had to drive it up onto the flatbed on wooden planks.

I can bet the owner wasn't there and didn't know what was happening to his car ...
Imagine his reaction when the tow company called him ...

Get a nice roll back with fold down ramps and a winch to reel you on. And then make sure the ******** don't overtighten the straps and overcompress your springs.

I just drive my **** up on a trailer, but if I had enough cash for a $500k car, I'm relatively certain I'd have something a little nicer than a $800 trailer to tow my ****.

Might not be a problem for the bugatti. Doesn't it lift up for speed bumps?
Wonder how many rubels that cost him.

Hahahahaha. Illegaly parked and got his car towed? He probably got a heart attack if later he saw on the internet how did his car get to the impound lot ... he probably killed (literally) few people there after that
