Car Wars

DURATION: 1 x 45 mins

Car Wars


If your late model car goes missing, don't expect to see it again soon. Chances are it's being rapidly dissected by swarming thieves, the parts packed into containers destined for ports in the Middle East. There, the stolen pieces will be unpacked, assembled and rebirthed as a shining "new" vehicle. Or maybe it's headed interstate, to start a new life as a "clone" of another vehicle, with stolen identity and forged plates. The inventiveness of Australia's stolen car industry seems limited only by its imagination. Car Wars reveals the tricks of the stolen car trade and traces the spectacular crash of one big syndicate following a six-month investigation.
