Five high-end luxury vehicles custom-built for the new Bond film “Spectre” have been stolen along with four others from Range Rover headquarters in Neuss, Germany.

The five Range Rover Sport models were manufactured specifically for the film, and were expected to ship to the Alps for filming, which began Monday. The theft occurred in October according to The Hollywood Reporter, and included four other unidentified luxury cars, making for a total haul worth almost $1 million.

“We are aware of the theft of a number of Range Rovers in Dusseldorf, Germany,” Land Rover UK said in a statement, according to The Daily Express. “This is a criminal act and the police are carrying out a full investigation.”

Police reportedly have no current leads in the case. The theft is not expected to set back production.

“Skyfall” director Sam Mendes announced the new film and the return of the previous film’s surviving core cast last week along with a new cast member — an Aston Martin custom-designed with the film’s producers especially for “Spectre.” (RELATED: James Bond Is Getting A Custom Aston Martin For New Film ‘Spectre’)

The thieves didn’t get their hands on James’ ride, but if they had, we expect there would have been a few surprises waiting for them.
