Luxury car brands most likely to be stolen

A list of cars that are most likely to be stolen has been released by an insurance company, according to money.aol.co.uk.

The list, compiled by Admiral also showed which cars are most likely to be vandalised or have items stolen from them.

German car brand BMW topped the list as a thief's dream, but didn't make the cut to be a target for vandals or get onto the list of having something stolen from it.

Bentleys appear to be the highest risk cars as the luxury brand took second place across the board on all three lists. Admiral looked at data from over 700,000 car insurance claims to create the lists and also released similar tables showing figures for specific models, as well as brands.

Given the results, those thinking of investing in a luxury vehicle should perhaps consider installing tracking systems, as in the event that they are stolen, these could help police find the vehicle in a shorter space of time.

Confused.com reported that the Nissan Figaro was most likely to have something stolen from it while, somewhat bizarrely, the Kia Soul was the biggest target for vandals.

The managing director of Admiral, Sue Longthorn, said: "It's important to remember to never leave anything on show in your car that could tempt a thief to break in."
