$140K BMW 7 Series was lifted by thieves in Detroit during auto show
14 January 2011
The 2011 Detroit Auto Show starts a little bit weird for BMW and funny for onlookers.
While workers were preparing to load a BMW 7 Series onto a transport truck near Detroit’s Westin Book Cadillac hotel, a pair of thieves jumped in and drove off with the German luxury sedan. The car is said to be worth $140,000, and as of this writing, local police have had no luck tracking down the stolen vehicle. Gratefully, this 7 Series is equipped with BMW Assist, which locates a vehicle if it’s stolen, so it’s only a matter of time before cops close in on the BMW bandits.
