Looks like 007 is having car trouble. Customized Range Rovers due to be used in the new James Bond movie "Spectre" starring Daniel Craig were stolen from a parking lot in western Germany, according to the auto maker. The cars were filched, along with other high-end Land Rover models, in October before being shipped to the movie shoot in the Alps although the news only came to light this week.

“The theft of the vehicles in Neuss is part of an ongoing police investigation and we therefore cannot provide any further detail,” a spokesperson for Jaguar Land Rover Germany told NBC News. The cars were designed specially for the film and have thinner windshields than normal Range Rovers do. Officials at the Jaguar Land Rover headquarters Germany confirmed that the manufacturer will continue to be "vehicle partner" for the movie. The five vehicles were valued at about $1 million, according to German media reports.
