Tom Cruise’s BMW reportedly contained one of the ‘world’s only copies of the new Top Gun film inside’ when it was stolen in Birmingham.
The A-Lister is said to have had a copy of Top Gun: Maverick alongside thousands of pounds worth of luggage in the X7 when it was taken by car thieves.
The £100,000 motor was nicked in a high-tech theft on Church Street last month as the Top Gun actor filmed scenes for Mission: Impossible 7.
A copy of the sequel is believed to have been found when the car was recovered, the Sun reported, but it is unknown if any copies were made.
Cruise had been staying at the Grand Hotel in the city centre while filming scenes at the nearby Grand Central shopping centre.
The train station was turned into an international airport for the Hollywood blockbuster movie.
Cruise could be seen filming with Hayley Atwell in front of a row of shops above the station’s main concourse, where crowds had gathered to catch a glimpse of the film star in sunglasses and a dark suit.
The Sun reports that Cruise was “hopping mad” when he learned of the high-tech theft of the BMW X7 – which saw thieves whisk the car away in minutes.
A source told the newspaper: “Tom had been driven around in the car while in Birmingham and some of his luggage and belongings were inside it when it was taken.”
The vehicle was later recovered in Smethwick by police. The source added that it was “equipped with an electronic tracking device” but that Tom’s luggage had disappeared.
A police spokeswoman told The Sun: “We received a report of a BMW X7 stolen from Church Street, Birmingham in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
“The car was recovered a short time later in Smethwick.
“CCTV enquiries have been made in the area that the car was recovered from. Inquiries are ongoing.”
