    Jon Olsson's Audi stolen at gunpoint and torched

     

    While the most shocking thing in this story to me is that you can get carjacked in Amsterdam, it's too bad this one-off, 1000HP Audi was burned to the ground.Smiley

    Re: Jon Olsson's Audi stolen at gunpoint and torched

    Well, the car wasn't really carjacked, it was stolen during a photo shoot.

    Also, it was very likely torched because the robbers realized they don't have the key (I suppose engine was running but key was in owner's pocket), making the car basically worthless to them and they probably torched it also because they wanted to get rid of the whole evidence (fingerprints, DNA, etc.).

    Another possibility could be that the owner actually committed insurance fraud, such a car isn't easy to maintain and even more difficult to sell, especially if it exchanged so many hands. angry This is of course just a wild fantasy of mine.

    Shit happens...

    They probably just intended to go for a joyride from the beginning.
