In a crime worthy of being in the Mission Impossible franchise, a car used by Hollywood star Tom Cruise was stolen while he was, ironically, filming scenes for the film Mission: Impossible 7 in the UK.

According to The Sun, Cruise had thousands of pounds worth of luggage stolen as well after thieves sped away in the BMW used by Cruise while he was in the UK. The car — a BMW X7 — was a state of the art car worth almost £100,000.

The car had been parked outside a hotel in Birmingham when it was taken by thieves who'd used a scanner to clone the signal from the luxury car’s keyless ignition fob. A source told The Sun that “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.

“It’s since been recovered by police because it was equipped with an electronic tracking device but everything inside it had gone," the source continued. "It’s a huge embarrassment for the security team and the guy who had been driving it was hopping mad — but not as mad as Tom!”

Cruise had been in Birmingham to shoot a scene for the seventh movie instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise. He'd been spotted at a shopping centre in the city shooting scenes with actor Hayley Atwell. Cruise was being driven around Birmingham city in the BMW in question by his bodyguard, who was the first person to notice the car was missing.

Cruise has been filming for the upcoming at various location across the UK. Mission: Impossible 7 is set to be released in 2022.

Someone who is used to stealing should be the culprit.....Nawaz Sharif stole Pakistan's wealth and ran away to the UK. He is a prime suspect!

Now that's impossible! Surely a car this valuable must have top notch security and GPS tracking device on it? Or Tom did not bother to do much more than standard alarm??? Hard to believe! Oh well. The thief will surely use clever disguises to conceal the car and sell it or keep it for future sale at a much higher price! Insurance company will pony up!

Car recovered by Police but contents lost. Raises many questions about security system of the car, hotel etc. Smart thieves!

@jaredlee007. Why this Nawaz bashing day and night? How does he come in the picture? Seems that's the only tune some of us can play on their flute.

These stolen matters are nothing for rich persons. He will recover his money if lost, by increasing fee of mission impossible 8.

No problem for him, if he lost money inside the car, will recover by increasing fee of mission impossible 8.

Unfortunately Birmingham is majority Pakistani Origin Britishers. Majority of youth is involved in Drug and theft related activites. Now due to influx of Romanians theft related activites have duaqruple. Its a pity that our community shamimg our country in UK.
