Well if it does indeed belong to that dealership in question, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an insurance scam! The car has been sitting for months and months and months. I guess this was the last resort to getting money out of this piece of inventory, lol.

Thiefs chose to steal Hondas and cheaper cars because there is a higher demand for their parts. This doesnt mean that a Lambo has a more difficult or more secure package. If a thief wants to steal a car he will......even the best alarm system is there just to delay him. All alarms are defeatable. Its just a matter of prolonging the time the thief needs to spend to get the car.


In this case this appears to be a case of intoxicated driving.Remember this:
New laws for high drivers take effect
By THE CANADIAN PRESS

Canadians who drive while high won’t be able to refuse roadside drug tests under new laws that kick in today.

Police can now require drivers to submit to roadside tests.

Officers also have the power to take suspected drug-impaired drivers to a police station or hospital to give a blood, urine or saliva sample.

Under the old law, police were obliged to tell drivers suspected of being high that roadside tests weren’t mandatory.

But as of today, refusing the test will be considered a criminal offence.

Drivers convicted of drug-impaired driving now face a minimum $1,000 fine for a first offence and a month in jail for a second conviction.

They probably were high or drunk and left the scene to face minimal penalties instead of a ban and all sorts of charges.
They will probably argue it was a case of shock after the incident or some other excuse.
As for the owner claiming insurance if the car seems to be unlocked with the key and no signs of a third party opening it by force and using it then they can not claim any insurance unless the dealer had a break in at his facilities. Either way this is going to cost him!

Yeah right, insurance companies are not dumbasses.. You bet they will have a proper investigation before shelling out any money.

If I were them, and they WERE drunk and crashed their lambo... leave the keys, take the plates... run back to the dealership, smash a window, and **** up the key-box that all the keys are kept in. Then take out the Surveillance tape, and say "i forgot to put the tape in"

make it look like a break-in.

if they were drunk and took off after smashing the car...

they probably freaked out and booked it after taking off the plates

in the spur of the moment what if they didn't whipe down the car to get rid of their fingerprints...

the article did say the cops were getting fingerprints from the car

if they turn out to be theirs aren't they technically fawked... i mean unless they have a solid alibi to say they were somewhere else and the robber wore gloves?


its a fawked up situation can't wait until they figure out what happened
