Thieves warm to Cadil­lac

NT News - Motoring - - NEWS -

CADIL­LAC is Amer­ica’s favourite brand — with thieves.

The up­scale Es­calade SUV is the most stolen car in the US, ac­cord­ing to the coun­try’s High­way Loss Data In­sti­tute, fol­lowed by the Ford F250 pickup, the In­finiti G37, the Hemi Dodge Charger and Chevro­let’s Corvette Z06.

The least pop­u­lar car with thieves is the Volvo S80. MORE than 20 world firsts are promised at the Los An­ge­les Auto Show in Novem­ber.

There is no de­tail yet but the pre­views are ex­pected to be head­lined by Porsche and MercedesBenz when the show opens on Novem­ber 19. GOOD news for Lexus fans. An ex­tra three cars have been added to the Aus­tralian al­lo­ca­tion of the Lexus LFA su­per­car.

That brings the to­tal to eight, with Lexus promis­ing now two will be the same be­cause of the ex­ten­sive cus­tomi­sa­tion on the car — from colours and trims to wheel and brake choices.
