The men were arrested Wednesday morning after jumping out of the truck in a police yard where the car was being delivered, The Sun tabloid reported. The London police ordered the modified 100,000 pounds ($200,000, €143,000) gray BMW 7 Series with reinforced doors and bulletproof glass from the company's Munich headquarters, the newspaper said.
