In fact, there's a significant element missing from this Aston Martin. If you haven't figured it out yet, it's the taillights!
The owner of this Aston Martin V8 Vantage might not be too pleased when he comes back and discovers the situation. The irony of the whole story is that removing the taillights is quite a straightforward task if you know how. These stolen taillights can fetch between 500-800 euros on the market, depending on their condition. Let's hope the owner is insured against such damage.
Interestingly, we've been encountering similar incidents quite frequently lately. On one hand, there were stolen wheels, simply unscrewed and taken away. We've also had disassembled bumpers removed in a similar fashion. Not long ago, a G63 6x6 had its tires slashed, presumably by climate activists causing mischief. We've even witnessed substantial damage to a sports car in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, caused by a missile from the Russians. Regardless of the damage to a car, accidents happen. It's disheartening when malicious intentions are involved. Unfortunately, the instances I've listed are all such cases. One can only hope each time that it's the last occurrence, but more often than not, disappointment follows.
