Lockdowns around the world have also been an opportunity for thieves trying to steal expensive cars as incidents of auto thefts have surged in recent times in the US. Recently, a security footage captured thieves stealing a Bentley Continental GT from a dealership, reported Fox 17. What happened next was bizarre as they drove the stolen vehicle right through the showroom's doors, breaking the glasses, in a real-life incident straight from the reel world of 'Gone in Sixty Seconds' movie.

The Bentley was worth nearly $40,000 and was stolen from a used car dealer European Autohaus in Michigan. The dealer posted the news on Facebook with a picture of the car and asked all other dealerships in the area to keep an eye out for such thieves.
