Picture this, you're stuffing your face full of gourmet food, giving your gullet a real workout, and you look up from your plate just in time to see your Maybach speed by. That last bite sticks in your throat, refusing to budge. Whoever absconded with your über-uglified super S-Class boots your driver out the door while rounding a corner. Now would not be a good time to recall that your €530,000 car is insured for a mere €300,000. Whoops. Vikotor Markov was enjoying a meal at the De Marco café when thieves swiped his Maybach 57. While introducing Mr. Chauffeur to Mr. Chlorfoorm is itself a dicey undertaking, Markov's 'Bach is the first to be swiped in Russia. The band of thugs that ambushed the driver and made off with the car is believed to be responsible for multiple luxury car thefts, including a passel of Bentleys. Perhaps it would have been wiser to just take the Metro.

      57? He deserves what he got for buying the stripped-down model.

      And I kinda of would expect any Russian who has a Maybach can not only afford to replace it, but can have the thief killed, possibly in front of his (or her) family.

        I concur. If you can afford a Maybach in Russia, you're not someone to mess with.

      and the police couldn't spot a stolen maybach speeding away? where did they hide it? I'd be pissed!

      He should be happy someone took that hideous POS away. If I were him, I'd buy a Roller, preferably the new Drophead.

      I don't get it...

      What are the thieves gonna do with the car now? Selling it to somebody else is not a possibility as it would be easily found. How you ask? Well, I'm sure that there aren't that many Maybachs in Russia so finding it can't be very hard.

      Adding "bad" doesn't exempt you from any abuse, especially since you posted lyrics. I vote that you're to be beaten about the face and neck area with a peanut butter laden celery stick. Heh heh....

      Actually it is quite difficult to find anything stolen in Moscow somewhere in Chechnya or Vladivostok.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Actually it was returned today:

      And i'm more sorry for poor SOBs who stole it cause right now they're probably having some kind of hiroshima up their asses.

      [...channels his inner-Nelson Muntz...] Haw-Haw!

      Not that I laugh at someone's misfortune often, but I'm sure this guy can buy another one...or two.

        this bitterness towards the wealthy is unbelievable! maybe to this guy, having your maybach stolen is the equivalent of a normal person having his xbox or playstation stolen. SO WHAT?! does that mean that he deserves to have his Maybach stolen? would you like it if someone stole your xbox and others just justified it by saying "well you can just buy another one, i mean what's the big deal"...

      Ah damn, why wasn't his daughter in there. Then we'd HAVE to send Chuck Norris / Steven Segal / Jean Claude... or perhaps even the governator. And I'd get another decent flick out of the deal.

        hahaha the theives actually wanted the car though... they weren't trying to take over the world with nuclear weapons
