Luxury car stolen at gunpoint on millionaire’s row

RESIDENTS in one of Brisbane's most sought-after and gracious streets are in shock after an armed gunman stole a couple's Audi.

The man and woman were threatened with a long-arm weapon and had their car stolen outside their Laurel Ave, Chelmer, home this morning.

They pulled up in their carport about 7.15am when the 64-year-old female resident was approached by a man who opened the door and brandished the gun.

He demanded the car keys while also threatened the woman's terrified 67-year-old husband.

He handed over the keys and the gunman fled northbound on the street at high speed in their grey 2019 Audi RS4, a make which sells for $130,000 to $140,000.

The couple was not injured.

Laurel Ave has several times been voted Brisbane's best street.

It is graced by huge camphor laurels which form a unique green archway along the street, which fronts the Brisbane river.

Most homes are worth more than a million dollars and several grand, sprawling Queenslanders have changed hands for more than $3 million in recent years.
