As he does so, the headlights flash as a sign that the £90,000 Tesla is now unlocked. His partner in crime later opened the driver’s door before zooming off.

“It was absolutely shocking how quickly it went.”

The truth is every car brand and model which can start keylessly can be unlocked and stolen with this relay device. But there are easy steps you can take to stop you from been the next victim of a relay theft.
