Even celebrities aren’t immune to crime: John Travolta was carjacked on September 19th, and left stranded in Santa Monica – with his vintage 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280-SL stolen from him on the spot.
Sources (TMZ) say the Saturday Night Fever star was visiting a Jaguar dealership yesterday and was only away from his car for around ten minutes. The vintage sports car – the exclusive 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280-SL is worth an estimated $100,000.
Mr. Travolta has made his love for planes and piloting very public throughout the years, but also has long been a car enthusiast. His automotive collection is said to include his beloved classic Thunderbirds, a Rolls-Royce, and a Jaguar XJ6.
