Stolen Lamborghini worth £250,000 ‘miraculously’ found


A rented Lamborghini supercar which vanished without a trace after being driven from Switzerland to London has ‘miraculously’ been found.

The £250,000 car had disappeared from GPS tracking systems in an Ikea car park in north London after a woman rented it and drove it 600 miles from Zurich.

Managing director of Scheiwiller Automotive Luxury Car Rental in Zurich, Adriano Scheiwiller, has confirmed to the Standard that the black Lamborghini Huracan Spyder was found earlier this month by a private investigator.

He said it was about to be shipped from the UK to West Africa when it was discovered in a shipping container along with other luxury vehicles.

He told Swiss newspaper Blick: “It’s a miracle that the investigator found my Lambo. If a bit more time had passed, it would have been gone.”

The investigator had reportedly been hired by someone else to find a stolen Audi.

Mr Scheiwiller added: “My Lambo was in the same container as the Audi. He knew my car from the media. It was an absolute coincidence.”

He previously told the Standard that a smartly dressed woman with an Irish passport hired the Lamborghini on Friday, July 14.

He said she told him the car was needed to drive to a business meeting in Strasbourg and that she would return it a few days later.

However when she failed to return the car, the company traced it all the way to London using its in-built GPS.

The tracker later went dead while the car was in the car park of Ikea off Angel Edmonton Road in north London.

Mr Scheiwiller said he was “very disappointed and angry” that his vehicle had been stolen.

He said: “She drove to London with the car and stole my Lambo.

“She was between 45 and 50 years old as in the passport photo. And very well dressed and a good character apparently, so she could play Hollywood with us.”

He offered a reward to 10,000 Swiss francs (a little under £8,000) to anyone who was able to help him find the car.
