If the chairman of DaimlerChrysler can't protect his car what hope does the average citizen have? Moscow News is reporting that the Russian Mafia stole Mr. Schrempp's limo to fill a special "order":

The Mercedes S 600 worth $800,000 was stolen in Stuttgart three weeks ago, 20 minutes after Schrempp left the car near a pedestrian zone. Police quoted by the paper believe the car, weighing 3.5 tons, was shipped on a trailer.
The paper did not elaborate why the investigation said the car had been stolen by the Russian mafia. Investigators said the Mercedes had most probably been taken out of the country shortly after it was stolen.
