Nissan Sunny 'artwork' stolen, The Independent

Could it be the first artwork stolen by accident? It seems unlikely that whoever made off with artist Clara Ursitti's L-registration Nissan Sunny had realised that it was shortly due to go on display at an art exhibition in Cheshire – although they may well have noticed that something didn't smell right.

Ursitti, who also works as a lecturer at Glasgow School of Art, had imbued the 1994 car with the luxurious whiff of a Rolls Royce, carefully recreated from an 1980s scented magazine advert.
