There have been plenty of suggestions by some of the 2,200 residents of Plounéventer including the settling of scores, a prank - or even an art project - after the car was spotted early on Monday morning.
The white utility vehicle Peugeot Partner was removed by police a few hours later with the help of a crane.
Officers published this humorous facebook post in a bid to solve the mystery.
