According to authorities, a man allegedly spent weeks talking to a salesman in Düsseldorf, Germany. The man showed up to see the car in person on Monday.

The salesman — who had been corresponding with the alleged thief — went with the driver during the test drive. After talking with the alleged thief, the salesman was going to drive the car back at some point, according to the authorities.

At this point in time, the salesman allegedly gets out of the car to change seats with the alleged thief. Instead of getting out, the alleged thief just drove off with the expensive ride.
