Stolen Bond Cars Include 5 Range Rover Sports

stolen Bond cars

Filming has been delayed on the set of the next James Bond film, Spectre, due to some of the luxury vehicles being stolen! While the star of the show, an Aston Martin DB10, remains safe, around five Range Rover Sport models were not so lucky. The stolen Bond cars have made headlines worldwide.

The set of the next James Bond film was shaken and stirred by the theft of several Range Rover Sport models. At least the mini fleet of Aston Martin DB10 cars are accounted for.

The heist ended in nine luxury vehicles being taken from a garage in Dusseldorf, Germany. The vehicles were intended for the set of Spectre, the next installment of the beloved James Bond films. Naturally, all of the stolen vehicles were completely customized for the film, making it a touch more frustrating for those involved to manage the crisis and replace them. The following statement was released via a spokesperson from Jaguar Land Rover in Germany on the matter: “The theft of the vehicles in Neuss is part of an ongoing police investigation and we therefore cannot provide further detail.” read more
