That includes the eyes of carjackers. One man learned this lesson the hard way at the weekend, as he was attending a country barn-style wedding in Tadcaster, the UK. Another lesson he learned: never lose or misplace your car keys.

North Yorkshire Police are now appealing to the public for information to help them track the car, which was stolen from outside the hotel where the rightful owner was spending the night, the Yorkshire Post writes. The Daily Mail has CCTV video of the moment the Lamborghini Aventador was stolen and it’s clear that the guys who took it had the keys to it.

The latter publication also says that the owner had lost the keys earlier “at an unknown location.” One could infer that whoever took the car either knew the man or had followed him closely. Either way, they don’t seem in a rush in the video, taking their sweet time before driving off with the car.

The owner discovered his supercar, that he had paid £300,000 for, was missing the next day at noon. He called the police but is yet to be reunited with it: the last time the Aventador was spotted, it was headed to Halifax.

“Police are appealing for witnesses and information about the theft of a bright green Lamborghini Aventador, reg-number RW24, that was taken from outside a property on Featherbed Lane, Wighill Park, Tadcaster, between 2.45am and 2.55am on Saturday 1 September,” a statement from the police reads.

“The theft was reported by the owner, a man from Wakefield who was staying overnight in the area, at 12.34pm on Saturday,” the statement adds.
