Two men were arrested for stealing luxury cars.

The clumsy thieves of England, stole two replica Ferraris, which have a value of $90,000.

However, they ran out of luck and were forced to abandon them almost immediately when the cars ran out of gas.

29-year-old Michael Jefferson and his friend broke into the Performance-Porsche showroom in Brighouse. They spent 4 hours moving other vehicles so they could steal the pair of Ferrari 250 GTO replicas.

The duo then left the business and drove off with the cars.

However, the thieves forgot to check the gas and they soon had to abandon the vehicles after it ran low on gas.

Jefferson was soon arrested for the theft and was linked to a number of other crimes in the area.

He pleaded guilty in the Bradford Crown Court to theft and three other burglaries.

The total cost of the damage to the cars and the showroom was about $1,500.

Judge Peter Benson sentenced Jefferson to 20 months in prison for theft of the car dealership and another 3 years in prison for his role in burglarizing homes.
