The capital is being hit by a new epidemic, worlds away from the coronavirus pandemic – and it's only affecting petrolheads.
Italian supercars are being pinched from parking spaces all over the city, being taken effortlessly using dangerous technology.
Sources tell SundayStar.co.uk that the moron menaces are using car key replication devices to break into the Italian motors.
Several cars were stolen within the last few days alone, including rarely-customised 812, 488 and Pista models, claim insiders.
Car insurance companies are reportedly telling owners that the vehicles are "being shipped to Russia" due to a "shortage of new cars".
"The cars are being stolen to order," claims one Ferrari owner. "The buyers [are] accepting that they can’t be taken to main dealers for servicing or repairs."
"The cars that have been stolen were mostly parked in supposedly secure underground car parks. The trackers were disabled within minutes of the thefts."
Another Londoner raised the issue on Reddit, saying his pal's Ferrari was stolen in the middle of the night.
"The Met police have been incredibly unmotivated to even investigate, even refusing to ask for CCTV footage" the user claimed.
Owners also tell SundayStar.co.uk that some insurance companies are refusing to cover some of the stolen cars with "loopholes".
"Vodafone are providing most of the tracking services and hackers are quickly able to turn off these devices using their dodgy technology."
The Metropolitan Police have been contacted for comment.
