Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. A Lamborghini stolen from celebrity chef Guy Fieri has been found a year after it first went missing. In case you need refreshing, the Lambo was pilfered by a thief who literally rappelled off the roof of a building in order to get access to the Italian Stallion.

It seems the perpetrator had a thing for stealthy operations – the vehicle turned up during an investigation that began after a motorcyclist wearing all black fired a gun into a parked car. The gunman was a 17-year-old boy, and Fieri's car was located in a storage container in Point Richmond, California, along with the boy's motorcycle and apparent evidence linking him to the shooting.

Fieri, for his part, is happy to have his Lamborghini back:

"I would like to thank the Marin County Sheriff's Office and the Mill Valley Police Department for their hard work and effort in the recovery of my car. I'm glad we can put this behind us, and feel better knowing that justice is being served."

If absence truly does make the heart grow fonder, we'd be happy to have our Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder back in one piece, too, especially considering it's been over a year since its disappearance.
