Engine shutoff

I was wondering, will the engine shut off when the keyfob is not in range of the car.

i can see someone get in and drive off without the key, or will it automaticly shut off after a few minutes?

It won't shut off (for security reasons I guess), but gives a warning that the key is not inside the car anymore. Another person can indeed drive off without the key until someone shuts off the car. Restarting then is not possible. So Key <=> start-validation is executed while starting engine. After starting, the car only controls whether the key resides within the car's perimetry.
