The race for the prize;
The chase for the treasure


Lupin manages to steal a classic Packard automobile from the New York Museum. He has entered himself into a classic car race that takes place from Madrid to Paris. The grand prize to the winner of the race is Napoleons Dictionary, in which the secret of The Treasure of the Empire is hidden.
Meanwhile, Inspector Zenigata has received direct orders from the Prime Minister himself to arrest Lupin. Zenigata makes a solid vow to catch him but he is unaware of the world politics and events that are transpiring behind the scenes. The war in the Gulf has caused great financial damage to the allied forces and all of the member nations. They are all determined to recoup their losses by capturing the Treasure of the Empire. However, Lupin is the only one who knows the secret behind accessing this highly sought after treasure. Armed with state of the art weapons from every allied nation, Lupin becomes relentlessly pursued.
The once amusing and extremely elegant classic car race turns into a mad and wild chase. Lupin and his old buddies Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko take off after the prize, Napoleons Dictionary with Zenigata and the secret agents in fast pursuit.
What exactly is and can be found in the Treasure of the Empire? Can Lupin, who is now the worlds most wanted man, survive the race and escape his armed pursuers with high-tech weapons?
