An exclusive Audi car said to be worth €400,000 has been stolen from a film set in Amsterdam in an armed robbery and set on fire.
The Audi RS6 DTM was being used during filming close to the Piet Hein tunnel near Amsterdam’s ring road at around 23.00 on Wednesday night.
The crew were filming at a petrol station when a van stopped and two armed men ordered the driver to get out of the car. According to the police report, they fired shots into the air, set their own van on fire and drove off in the Audi.
The car was found later in the evening as a burnt-out wreck in an underground car park in Amsterdam’s Nieuw-West district, police said. Two other cars were also destroyed in the blaze. Police are appealing for witnesses.
According to local broadcaster AT5, only people who live in the nearby housing complex can access the car park using a special pass.
The Telegraaf says the car was up for sale with an asking price of €400,000.
