    The 300 million yen robbery

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/300_million_yen_robbery

    The 300 million yen robbery (????? San Oku En Jiken?), also known as the 300 million yen affair or incident, was the single largest heist in Japanese history. It occurred on the morning of December 10, 1968 in Tokyo, Japan. As of 2011 it remains unsolved.
    And some videos recreating the event. Doesn't quite look like they can agree on what cars were used in the robbery.

    Great post Cesariojpn.
    I think Beat Takeshi was a bit miscast but guessing Tom Cruise will play the young Japanese policeman in the Hollywood remake so...
