19-year old Max Wade had the skills of a career criminal at only 16. Back in 2011, the teenager rappelled from the ceiling into an exotic car dealership in San Francisco, cut the locks and drove off in celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
ABC Channel 7 in San Francisco has the video of Wade’s now infamous Lamborghini heist. In the video, Wade is seen dropping into the dealership and walking around for 15 minutes before eventually hopping in the yellow Lambo, driving down the ramp from the second story and out into the dark of the night.
Wade kept the car for little while after stealing it, even driving it around, leading to Guy Fieri receiving reports of people seeing his car around Northern California.
“We would get calls all the time and I mean all the time,” he said. “I had friends call me who would say, ‘Listen, I just saw your car on the freeway.’ And I was like, believe it or not, there’s more than one yellow Lamborghini convertible probably in Northern California. And people would call and we’d get reports and my attorney would hear about it. Well, come to find out that he was driving it. Brave kid.”
Wade has since been caught for the theft of the Lamborghini. He was sentenced to life in prison for the theft and for shooting at a former schoolmate and his girlfriend in a romantic dispute.
