Man arrested in connection with theft of limited-edition Ferrari

A 36-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the theft of a limited-edition Ferrari. 

The black Ferrari 458 Italia, reported to be worth more than £230,000, was stolen from a car showroom in Surrey in a late night raid back on January 9.

According to bbc.co.uk, Surrey Police arrested the suspect at a property in Reading last Friday. He has been bailed until March 20 when inquiries will continue. 

The Ferrari was stolen with enough ease to spook the owner of any luxury car. Bbc.co.uk reports that two men were spotted using an angle grinder to cut through security poles before driving a flatbed vehicle into the showroom and loading the car on board. The raid had been described as "planned and well-organised" by Surrey Police.

Upon hearing this story, luxury vehicle owners might be tempted to invest in vehicle tracking solutions for their car, in order to increase the chance of finding their vehicle if stolen.

Surrey Police are still keen to hear from any witnesses who may have spotted the Ferrari being stolen from Maranello Sales on the Egham bypass.

Detective constable Chris Ewan recently told getsurrey.co.uk: "The stolen Ferrari is a distinctive car so I am keen to hear from anyone who may have seen it, perhaps on the back of another vehicle, either in the local area of elsewhere."
