It was a calm weekend shift, Saturday at half past three in the afternoon, when officers from the Victoria Police car in Australia, driving in the suburbs of the city of Melbourne, noticed a driver driving on the road in what they later called a "semi-car".
They ordered her to stop and immediately recorded her vehicle.
Not a special supercar, or a rare SUV.
But a 2022 Hyundai Palisade that looks like it just rolled out of the factory - from the middle of the assembly line.

Her Palisade, a car that is also a relatively expensive crossover in Australia, with a starting price of 71,000 local dollars - and in Israel from 320,000 shekels - was missing some rather prominent items.
It had no hood, front bumper, front window and rear window.

In a statement from the Australian police, no details were given as to how the vehicle came to such a state: whether the parts were stolen from the vehicle, or whether it did not have the money to repair it after an accident.
It was only reported that the driver, about 41 years old, had already received a police warning three days before, and continued to use the vehicle.
Now the driver, in addition to getting the missing parts, has to pay a report of 740 Australian dollars for driving an unroadworthy vehicle.
Whereas the Australian police posted on its Facebook page a recommendation for drivers: don't forget to leave the house with a wallet, driver's license and the front of the vehicle.
And how does the palisade drive when complete?
