Ah, the perils of fame, money and expensive cars. And no, sorry, this is not a Charlie Sheen story. Food Network star Guy Fieri (Minute to Win It, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives) had his $200,000-plus Lamborghini sports car stolen, and not just ripped off by any old thief, but someone who has obviously been watching way too many old Tom Cruise movies.
Yesterday morning, the thief broke into a San Francisco car dealership by climbing onto the roof and rappelling into the showroom using mountaineering tools. He or she then unlocked the garage door and drove away in the bumblebee yellow 2008 Gallardo, leaving behind the climbing gear. Given the car's exclusivity and rather dramatic color, the San Francisco police do not think the thief will get very far. Although, since the car can hit speeds of up to 190 mph, you never know.
