Deliveries of the brand new C8 Corvette may not have started yet, but a copy has had all its wheels and tyres stolen on Thursday.

This theft comes a day few days after a collector, Rick Hendrick, splashed $3 million at a Barrett-Jackson auction for rights to the first-ever Corvette C8 that is expected off the line in February.

Its likely the test car wasn’t equipped with wheel locks. The anti-theft device is available as an option for an additional $90 and $120 – if you get them painted black.
