LILLE, France, May 26 (AFP) - A man passing himself off as a car dealer stole a Ferrari from an unsuspecting trucker delivering the luxury vehicle near this northern French city, police said Thursday.  

They said the truck driver was unloading the Ferrari early Wednesday when a man in suit and tie approached him and offered his help, claiming to work at the car dealership that had ordered the sports car.  

But instead of driving the Ferrari into the dealership, the man made off with it.  

An investigation was under way.
