Rare and Expensive Ferrari California Stolen from Paramus Home

2 mins read

PARAMUS, NJ – Thieves in Paramus used a garage door opener inside an unlocked car in a driveway of a home to gain access to the home. After entering the home through the garage door, the thieves found the keys to the locked Ferrari California, a rare luxury car, and drove off with it.

Ferrari made between 1,500 and 1,600 California models each year, which the Portofino model has since replaced. Unlike the cars most Americans buy that immediately depreciate in value, the California Ferraris sold for about $180,000 new, but some can fetch up to $300,000 on the market today.

According to Paramus Police, on Sunday, at approximately 10:50 pm, officers responded to an Alpine Drive residence on the report of a burglary in progress.  Upon arrival, officers spoke with the victim’s teenage son who reported that when he arrived home he observed his parents’ 2016 Ferrari speed away from their home and that their garage doors were all open.  

“An investigation revealed that at least 3 suspects arrived at the home in an unknown sports utility vehicle, color white,” the department said. “The suspects(s), who were wearing masks, then entered another of the victim’s vehicles which was left unlocked in their driveway. The actor(s) then used the garage door opener located in that vehicle to gain access to the home.  The suspects then entered and stole the Ferrari California which was located in the garage with the keys in it. The suspects also stole several small items from the garage.”

Paramus Police detectives are currently investigating this crime. Anyone with information is asked to call the Paramus Police Department at 201-262-3400.
