Lamborghini hired in Switzerland swallowed up by London Ikea car park

Scheiwiller LamborghiniPolice are still looking for a rented Lamborghini sports car which disappeared from an Ikea car park in London last weekend. The £250,000 Huracan Spyder was hired from Scheiwiller Luxury Car Rental in Zurich on the 21 July.

Proprietor Adriano Scheiwiller says the supercar was rented by a middle-aged woman holding a passport issued in Ireland. He explained that she was smart and told him she would be driving to Strasbourg for a meeting and would be back on Sunday.

Mr Scheiwiller said the woman paid a deposit equivalent to £2,500 before driving off in the Lamborghini. When the woman and the car did not turn up on Sunday, Mr Scheiwiller tracked the vehicle’s movements via its onboard GPS system.

The log showed that instead of the 200km journey from Zurich to Strasbourg, the Lambo had been driven more than five times as far and ended up in north London. The last logged location of the Lamborghini was at the Ikea store on Angel Edmonton Road.

Mr Scheiwiller said he asked a couple of associates to have a look at the car park, but by this time the signal from the tracker had been switched off. He carried on by saying the two people searched the car park and the nearby area thoroughly but to no avail.

Mr Scheiwiller says that in all likelihood the passport the woman used to rent the car was counterfeit and he is extremely disappointed over its loss. Scheiwiller Luxury Car has contacted police in London and they are looking into the matter.
