Two thieves in Detroit made off with a good score; a 2011 BMW 750xi Sedan worth about $94,000. The car was left idling outside the Westin Book Cadillac, one of the major hotels in Detroit.
The car was part of a fleet sent to Detroit by BMW in order to chauffeur guests and executives around the Motor City during the 2011 NAIAS this past week. As of this morning, police were still looking for the vehicle.
The car was delivered by a valet to be loaded onto an automotive transport truck to be taken back to BMW’s North American headquarters in New Jersey. BMW hold no ill will towards the event or its organizers, and says that this was just an unfortunate incident, and the company remains committed to the event for the future.
