Two masked raiders armed with what is thought to be a shotgun stole an expensive Bentley from a house before dumping it in Ascot.
The men broke into a house in Bagshot last night and confronted one of the people living there.
They demanded to know where the keys were to the black Bentley Continental parked in the drive.
They then took the keys and drove off.
The car was recovered in Gatcombe Crescent in Ascot later that night.One of the suspects is thought to be white, around 5ft 7ins tall and of slim build.
He was wearing dark clothes and a black balaclava.
The other is taller and also wearing dark clothes and a black balaclava.
Police think one of them had some sort of weapon, which could have been a shotgun.
Detective constable Clare Nettleton said: “This was a frightening ordeal for the occupants and we are doing everything we can to locate these individuals and bring them to justice.
"We are particularly interested to hear from anyone who saw the Bentley being driven anywhere between Bagshot and Ascot during the early hours or saw any cars driving in convoy.
“I would also remind owners of similar high value vehicles to be vigilant and take proper security precautions to prevent the same thing happening to you.”
