A Thief Stole a Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Mercedes-Maybach GLS With Their Phone

Stealing a car might be one of the few things that may be easier to do in real life than in the movies.

One tech-savvy thief used their phone to steal a Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 and Rolls-Royce Cullinan earlier this month, according to WSVN 7 News Miami. All the culprit had to do was change the delivery address for both vehicles.

Of course, it wasn’t quite that simple. The thief first hacked into the driver’s portal for Dealers Choice Auto Transport Service of West Palm Beach, the company that was delivering luxury vehicle. Then, armed with all the relevant information for the Maybach, they contacted the driver posing as the car’s owner and changed the delivery locations.

The thief then changed the Maybach GLS’s drop-off location from Hollywood, Fla., to Miami. That rerouted the Cullinan from Limited Spec Automotive, a dealership located in the city, to a random parking lot. And in both cases, they were able to make off with the vehicles.

Stealing the car doesn’t seem to have been enough for the thief, though. They also saw fit to mock the Dealers Choice Auto Transport Service and owner of the Cullinan in the days since the thefts. When the delivery driver texted that the thief that they had stolen from the “wrong guy,” they replied, “That’s what the guy with the Cullinan said as well,” later adding: “Thanks for the free Maybach dawg.”

The thief wasn’t done, either. They sent another text that read “Bro, car already in Dubai, or Europe you guess.” This was followed by a photo showing a torn-up area of the floorboard where the vehicle’s GPS system is located.

One thing that must be said for the thief is that they have good taste. The GLS is Mercedes’ most luxurious SUV, along with one of its most powerful thanks to a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 550 hp. It starts at $174,350. The Cullinan, meanwhile, may be the most decadent SUV out there. It has a twin-turbocharged V-12 that produces up to 592 hp and starts at $374,000. The total value of the two vehicles comes in at well over $500,000.

Local authorities are currently investigating both thefts. There’s also a $20,000 reward out for each car, but it wouldn’t be that much of a shock if both are long gone.
