A motoring enthusiast from Hounslow has offered a four-figure reward for information leading to the return of his prized car.
Naz Khan's Ford Capri 280 Turbo Technics was stolen from the driveway of his home in Thornbury Road, Isleworth , during the early hours of last Thursday (July 28).
He says the vehicle is incredibly rare, being one of just 50 such models in the UK, and is one he had dreamed of owning since he was a boy.
The 42-year-old civil servant also says it has great sentimental value as he has taken it to many family weddings and parties.
"It's a car I've wanted to own since I was a child and even though I've only had it for a short time there are so many memories attached to it," said the father-of-two.
"I'm desperate to get it back, which is why I'm offering a substantial four-figure sum for information leading to its recovery.
"I believe it was stolen to order and it's important we catch the culprit before other vehicles are targeted."
The highly distinctive car is green and has the registration number E28 FNO.
Anyone with information regarding its whereabouts can call Mr Khan on 0794 9013 481.
Any information about the theft should also be reported to police via the non-emergency number 101.
