Is It Possible To Steal A Rolls-Royce Hood Ornament?

We know the Spirit of Ecstasy is valuable, so how has Rolls-Royce made it thief-proof?

The Spirit Of Ecstasy is perhaps the most outrageous car ornament that still exists. Back in the the early 1900s, many cars featured extravagant hood ornaments including Duesenberg, Mercedes-Benz, and even mainstream brands like Chevrolet and Buick. Unfortunately, most manufacturers have ditched hood ornaments. However, Rolls-Royce continues to use its mascot, the Spirit of Ecstasy. The Flying Lady that Rolls-Royce uses hasn't changed much after more than a century, but you can order a few options to change it up a bit.

For example, you can order an illuminated version of the Flying Lady, or even one in solid gold. Modern Rolls-Royce cars come with a feature that allows you to hide your valuable ornament when you park, so thieves can't take your precious emblem. But we always wondered, what would happen if you forgot to hide the emblem in the grill?
