A woman allegedly using an Irish passport reportedly stole a car worth €250,000 from a car rental company in Switzerland and drove it to London.

The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder which was only meant to be rented to drive from Zurich to Strasbourg, was last seen in an IKEA carpark in London on Tuesday with two men inside.

Managing Director of Schweiwiller Automotive Luxury Car Rental, Adriano Scheiwiller told Independent.ie that the woman who stole the car from their company was carrying what appeared to be an Irish passport and dressed like a "typical business woman".

He said: "She was like any other business woman who rents our cars. She had an Irish passport but told us she was from London. We now think that the passport was fake."

The company's GPS system noticed that the car was in the UK on Sunday evening and reported the theft to the police in Switzerland and London. 

The GPS has since been disabled from the car and Mr Schweiller is now offering a reward of 10,000 francs (€9,000) to anyone who can find the car.

He said: "We hope this reward will help us get it back. It's a big loss to us and the first time that anything like this has happened."
