superstar and English
football hero David Beckham has lost his second BMW
in just six months.
In the latest heist, his armored BMW X-5, which was fitted with the latest in high-tech security features (including an
ignition requiring a unique ID code to start the engine), was lifted from a shopping mall parking garage near Madrid.
Apparently, thieves used specialized software to circumvent the X-5's anti-theft measures. Police report that an
average of 50 luxury cars
are stolen in Madrid every day.
