Stolen Bugatti Veyron GrandSport !!!

Stolen Bugatti Veyron

I found out about this unrealistic news this morning from the guys at GTspirit.com
Here is a short resumé of what happened: some polish guys were in Switzerland and stole three cars during a burglary, and were eventually caught by the police a little bit later, in Germany. I won't say much more about the whole deal because that's not really what interests me, what interests me is the "car part": the thing is, they didn't just steal random cars, but a BMW 750 Li, a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, and last but not least, a Bugatti Veyron GrandSport Sang Bleu (well, a copycat)!!!

Yes, this particular Bugatti has a chrome paintjob (polished aluminium) paired with blue carbon fiber (take a look at the pictures down below to get a better idea of what the car looks like): this car is a copy of the unique "Bugatti Veyron Sang Bleu" (only one official unit, I'm not counting al the "copycats" emanating from Bugatti's client program, like this one, or a Russian one). This car is worth more than 1,5 million euros and, like every other Bugatti, has a tracking device (yes, you can't steal such a mythical car with such ease). So all in all, it's a pretty unique Bugatti, but above all, a pretty shiny and noticeable supercar.
So I'm wondering to myself how can someone be so dumb as to steal that car. I won't say anything regarding the BMW and the 599 GTB because after all, those cars can be stolen without too much problems. But a chromed-out Bugatti Veyron...? First of all, a regular Bugatti Veyron is definitely a head-turner, no matter the color scheme: wherever this car is, it is very noticeable (such charisma on this rather small and low car). So I'm wondering how noticeable can a chrome car be... and how stupid would you have to be to steal one of those and not do anything about it (i.e: spray-painting it black, put it inside a truck...). Maybe they didn't plan to steal those cars in the first place, but when they saw them, their eyes and minds were set on the Bugatti Veyron like a moth to a flame, and that was the beginning of their end!
