VISTA, Calif. (AP) — A rare car valued at $250,000 that was stolen in San Diego County has turned up in pieces.
San Diego police tell the North County Times that the 2005 Ford GT was found stripped in a Vista warehouse.
Sgt. Jim Kistner says the transmission, the frame and the engine were gone. He says all that was left were small pieces that had been cut up into even smaller pieces. A stolen Porsche also was found.
No arrests have been made.
The Ford GT was discovered missing from a Rancho Santa Fe storage area on July 10. Kistner says the engine alone is worth about $40,000.
Only around 4,000 of the cars were built. The 550-horsepower vehicles can go from zero to 60 in under 4 seconds.
