Earlier this week in the sleepy, creatively named suburb of South Melbourne, which is er, a bit south of Melbourne, which is in Australia, a Maserati Quattroporte GTS was stolen from a not-shady-at-all carwash called Blue Planet Carwash.
Reports suggest that the keys to the big Maser were left in the car while it was parked after being detailed by the people (aliens?) from Blue Planet. So the whole stealing of the car by some thugs part was as easy as counting the rather small number of teeth remaining in the thieves’ mouths.
The Maserati then went on a bit of an adventure with the thieves, stopping at a number of typically Maserati locations, such as a casino, and some petrol stations – the big Quattroportes natural habitat – until finally the cars thirsts were quenched for the last time, then moments later it was dumped at the very petrol station where the car was just filled, which is a bit odd.

What essentially appears to have happened is, some rather considerate thieves stole the Maserati, drove about in it acting all high class, giving the chav act a break while picking up some pretty girls who would normally never even look them – hence the casino-, the thieves then thought it’d be nice of them to give the owner a thank you gift – a full tank of petrol. The friendly thieves then abandoned the car at the petrol station and ran off.
Throughout this whole episode the Maserati wasn’t harmed in any way, in fact it looked to be in better nick than when the owner left it in the hands of Blue Planet Carwash thanks to a pre-steal wax and polish.
Police are now calling for any witnesses who might know of or have seen, a man wearing a baggy jumper and a pixelated face. And the aliens from Blue Planet have promised to now be more vigilant and not leave the keys to other peoples expensive cars simply in the car while it’s parked in their highly secure car park.
