A very rare BMW was stolen by thieves from a processing center at a New Jersey port on March the 13th. The BMW in question was a 550i Sophisto and is very rare and in fact was the only one in the US.
This very rare car isn’t the only one that has been stolen as another five cars from the same manufacturer have gone missing as a result of three heists that took place at the Port Authority-owned lot in Jersey City and at a private facility in Elizabeth.
The Sophisto is worth about $90.000 was supposed to head for the Javits Center in order to appear at the New York Auto Show. Around 2 a.m. is when the heist is assumed to have taken place as three thieves entered the BMW Port Jersey preparation center where they broke into and left with the BMW 550i Sophisto, a 535xi and a 650i.
This didn’t end here as they returned Monday night and helped themselves to a 750lxi and further more on Wednesday the same group got hold of an extra Beemer from a company facility in Elizabeth.
The company and the authorities are cooperating to get the thieves as soon as possible.
