The thief and an accomplice pulled up to Audi West Houston in a white Range Rover Sport with no license plates. After taking the RS 5 for a spin, the man sat down with a sales person, supposedly to talk about a deal.
Instead, he swiped the RS 5's keys during a brief moment when the sales person was out of the room. He also made sure to take his driver's license (which the dealer was holding), and even the cup of coffee he'd been given.
He was reportedly gone before anyone could even try to stop him. The dealer is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who can return the car, or provide a tip.
The 2014 Audi RS 5 coupe has a base price of $70,495, including destination. The example stolen from Audi West Houston had a reported sticker price of around $80,000.
Still, it could have been worse. No one was hurt, and the two thieves are also shown inspecting an R8 coupe in the dealership's surveillance video. That would have been a more expensive loss, albeit an easier one to track down.
