Lamborghini Stolen, Owner Needs Your Help!
A thief with a fake ID has managed to nick a Lamborghini from a supercar rental company. You might be able to help find it for a reward.
As far as creative heists go, this one is pretty high up there. A Lamborghini was stolen from supercar-rental agency, Scheiwiller Automotive, but not as if the car was hot-wired at 3 a.m. in a parking lot, but rather, the keys were handed right over to the thief. How? Well, that’s all described in this Reddit thread.
Using cash as an over-head, the car was rented under a fake ID and passport, and almost immediately driven out of the country and into the British Isles. That’s when Scheiwiller Automotive says the GPS tracker was intentionally disabled.
Things start getting a bit tricky here, as many Reddit users point out that the ID is very obviously a fake, with an apparent incorrect gender, and even a typo in the expiration date. Not only does it make things difficult to track down the thief, but it puts a small part of blame on the rental car agency for being careless with verifying who’s renting their high-price machinery.
Sadly, we know that when a car like this vanishes without a trace, there’s a very small likelihood it’ll ever be found again. However, Scheiwiller Automotive Luxury Car Rental is offering up a 5000 franc reward (~$5,180 USD) for any leads that result in the stolen Lamborghini being returned.
