It appears James Bond is having trouble with real-life villains as nine luxury cars designed for the shoot have reportedly been stolen from the new movie’s set in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The cars, including five Range Rover Sport models, are worth almost $999,000, and had been specially customized for SPECTRE – the next chapter of the popular spy series.
“We are aware of the theft of a number of Range Rovers in Dusseldorf, Germany. This is a criminal act and the police are carrying out a full investigation,” Land Rover stated.
The cars were awaiting transport to the Alps for shooting set to commence next week.
Reports suggest the theft could potentially delay filming and that the German police have not been able to find any leads yet.

The car theft news comes almost a week after SPECTRE was launched at a press conference, with Daniel Craig returning as MI6 agent 007 alongside Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Christoph Waltz. It is slated for release next year in November.
Another big-budget Hollywood production that was reported to have faced a similar problem was “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” In September, a website claimed that the Batmobile had gone missing in Detroit from the sets of the movie, however those rumors proved false.
