This couldn't have happened to a "nicer" guy. My guess is that someone he screwed in the past got back at him stealing this car.
KCBS news Its not a GT-R, and its not the hero car. Its just a GTS. One of the stunt cars for Fast and Furious 4. Probably not even in the US legally. It was one of the cars that should have been exported out of the US. Karma is a bitch.
