What size crane would one need to hoist a Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet onto a second story roof?

If you are reading this you are probably wondering why anyone would want to do this. Let me explain the situation. My next door neighbor and I are great friends. We are constantly playing hilarious jokes on each other and we always have to one up every joke.

About a month ago I tossed a bunch of road kill in his swimming pool. He responded by setting my shrubs on fire. For my next prank I had his house painted bright pink while he was on vacation. Then he got me back by digging up my front yard with a backhoe while I was at work. Given his pattern he obviously knows I love my lawn.

He just got a brand new E-Class Cabriolet. I want to have it hoisted onto his roof in the middle of the night. I need to rent a good crane and it should probably be fairly quiet.

Haha we love playing these pranks so this should be a good one if I can pull it off.
