Remember “Gone in 60 Seconds”? We’re sure you do and that was the first thing that crossed our minds when we first saw this. Because on Saturday night, thieves broke into the Xtreme UK showroom in Stourbridge, West Midlands and took off with nine cars, valued at over £300,000 (that’s about $600,000). The stolen cars were one Lamborghini Gallardo, two Subaru Imprezza WRXs, three Mitsubishi Evolution, a Porsche 911 and a Renault Clio V6.
Apparently, we weren’t the only ones thinking about the movie, because Xtreme UK chief, James Challis, said that “just like in the Gone in 60 Seconds movie, the crooks obviously knew what they were looking for.” However, what’s really interesting is that, if you take a look at the Xtreme UK website, you’ll see that they have live cams from the showroom, but these were pretty useless to the police in finding out suspects.
So, everyone in the UK, if you’re looking for a good deal on a high performance car, this might be your lucky day.
WTF would anybody want the wrx?
