reverse sportscar heist

Meanwhile everybody playing Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal 2014) seems to know about the dealer’s showroom in The Loop where you can easily steal a Scafati GT, the most lamborghini-ish of all cars in the game. There are videos on YouTube and more information around the Net explaining the feat. Just walk into the store, enter a car, drive it through the glass panes of one of the floor-to-ceiling windows, and off you go. I already had driven two Scafati GTs, stolen on the street, but nevertheless wanted to see the showroom.

When I reached it in an orange 336-TT—it already was that dirty when I picked it up at a Motel’s parking lot—I saw that there were only two cars on display in the vast room. Which gave me an idea …

How about filling up the showroom with sportscars, instead of stealing them from there? There’s no suitcase to be found at the station, so something else has to be done in the game.

The 336-TT to my eye is a mix out of a Porsche 959/969, 911 and an Opel GT—but the front’s shape definitely resembles a Lamborghini Miura. So it makes a nice pair with the Diablo/Gallardo and something else mix the Scafati GT is. Both being orange was a lucky coincidence. … the guy on the left doesn’t like orange or just has no sense at all for automotive history.
    Having the first two arranged nicely I set out to get the next sportscar. But when I returned with it, both orange cars had disappeared. Instead there was only one red Scafati GT now. As someone has said in a comment somewhere—it’s not GTA, and there’s no place for storing cars. Well, let’s see …

Here you can see me just having delivered number three. Meanwhile it got dark and rain poured. The trick seems to be not to walk too far away from the showroom. As The Loop is a glitzy and wealthy ‘hood, chances are that you’ll find sportscars in close vicinity.

The best I could achieve was to get six cars into the showroom. The two Scafati GTs which already were there, a red and a black one; a silvergrey Boxberg R1; two Sunrims, one red and one yellowish green: and a Papavero Stealth Edition. The green Sunrim was the end of the streak, because the police followed me after I had stolen it by dragging its possessor from the steering wheel. After my release from custody the cars of course were gone again. In the words of the immortal Freddie Mercury: ‘I’m gonna go go go there’s no stopping meeee’

Once more I managed to cram six cars into the showroom. See how neatly I parked them in order to get more cars into my indoor parking lot? You guessed it, they disappeared. Enough is enough, I am leaving this place—I heard that there’s a Papavero dealership in the Mad Mile—maybe their showroom is more stable …

    LOL. Great intention. Let’s confuse the A.I.-thieves ;)

    I’m currently playing Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and I’d love to give back all the ships I’ve boarded so far to their respective owners (and keep the rum hoho). But nobody wants to take them back. That bugs me all the time.
