Thieves have driven off with $1.4 million worth of luxury cars owned by society doctor Geoffrey Edelsten.

The expensive cars include a Lamborghini Aventador valued at around $800,000.

The Herald Sun says a dark blue Mercedes SLS Gullwing worth $500,000 and a black BMW 335i owned by Dr Edelsten's wife Brynne were also stolen.

The thieves are thought to have entered the security car park at the Exhibition Street apartment block where the couple live early Sunday morning while Dr Edelsten was in Adelaide.

It's believed the Lamborghini and the Mercedes were taken then and the thieves returned the following day and drove off in the BMW.
Police have since recovered the black and gold Lamborghini and are confident of finding the other two cars

Something doesn't add up. Aren't most new European cars just about impossible to steal without a key?

if the theft were for real and well planned - I doubt they would have got the car(s) back

and I didnt think it would be so easy to "steal" from a secure complex 2 days in a roow

Exactly, and to steal 3 over 2 days?

Another publicity stunt IMO

I can't speak for the others but its far too easy to steal a BMW. There's been a couple of 1M's in the UK that have been taken recently.
