Thieves in London, England tried make off with the wheels from a $266,000 Aston Martin DBS, but appear to have given up after taking 3 of the 4 wheels.

The dim-witted criminals left the car with bricks under the rocker panels, and a jack wedged under the rear quarter panel, both of which mangled the delicate aluminum bodywork. Total damage is estimated at an eye-watering $43,000, with the wheels costing $6,500 alone. The DBS is famous for its role in James Bond movies, like Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
