THE owners of a distinctive supercar that was stolen in North Yorkshire have offered a reward of up to £10,000 for its safe return or the arrest and conviction of the offenders.

The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, registration number RW24, was stolen from outside a property in Featherbed Lane, Wighill Park, near Tadcaster, at around 3am on September 1. Since the theft, the vehicle has been seen in the Halifax area, a spokesperson for North Yorkshire Police said.

The vehicle was wrapped in a distinctive lime green film with a black racing stripe on the bonnet and green racing stripe on the roof. It has a removable roof, black wheels, wheel spacers, beige seats and the words ‘Lamborghini’ in black on the front doors. One of the wheels has a 1cm chip in it, and there are some minor marks on the passenger seat leather, and it is fitted with a specialist Caprista exhaust.

However, there is a possibility that some of these items may have been changed or removed by the thieves, the police spokesperson said.

Underneath its wrapping, the vehicle is Azure blue – a silver-blue colour which changes depending on how it captures the light.

The vehicle identification number is ZHWER17D8ELA02022, but again this may have been changed by the suspects, the spokesperson added.

"This vehicle will be detected world-wide due to its extremely rare nature, it cannot be serviced by a legitimate Lamborghini dealer without Lamborghini being alerted, and there is no value in the vehicle for parts," the spokesperson commented, adding: "The reward will be paid upon the safe recovery of the vehicle in good condition or the arrest and conviction of the suspects. It may be divided depending on the number of people who come forward with information and if more than one person gives information directly leading to the safe recovery or conviction, the reward will be divided at the owner’s discretion."

Anyone who believes they have seen the supercar or knows where it is now, or has any other information that could assist the investigation, should phone North Yorkshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
