Dominic Cooper offers reward as beloved £83,000 Ferrari stolen from street just months after Range Rover theft

Actor Dominic Cooper is appealing for information after his beloved 1978 Ferrari was stolen from a North London street – just months after his Range Rover was also nicked.

The Mama Mia! star is offering a reward for any information that may locate the iconic 1978 Dino 308 GT4 vehicle, reported to be worth £83,000, after sharing the Primrose Hill theft on a local forum.

Reps confirmed the news sharing the latest blow to the dedicated car-lover who first dreamed of owning the model when he was young.

They said: ‘He was first targeted a few months earlier when the Range Rover he was using to deliver freshly cooked food to the NHS for charity Cook-19 was stolen.

‘This particular car was a long-held dream purchase (he has collected toy figures of the model since he was a child) so he is very keen to receive any information on its whereabouts and is offering a reward.’

Sharing the news with neighbours about the most recent theft, Dominic had written: ‘Please keep a look out. 1978 Dino stolen.

‘Please keep yourself and your bits safe, hopefully the rising level of burglaries and theft in our neighbourhood may at some point go down.’

A Met Police statement confirmed it’s believed the theft occurred on Friday February 19.

It read: ‘On Friday, 19 February, we received a report that a vehicle had been stolen in Primrose Hill. The theft is believed to have occurred earlier the same day.

‘Anyone with information should call 101 or tweet @MetCC using the reference 2302991/21.

‘Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.’

It is reportedly the fourth time Dominic has fallen victim to car thieves in the space of a year, after it was previously alleged he also had his classic Austin-Healey stolen last year, while it was also alleged thieves broke into his £54,000 open-top Jaguar F-Type coupe in September.

The Need For Speed star is a keen car collector and spoke of his love for classic vehicles in a 2014 interview: ‘I’ve always loved them and sort of obsessed over them. I suppose a majority of boys do.

‘I remember, at a very young age, polishing my models of Ferraris in my bedroom.

‘While other kids were out riding their bikes, I was polishing Ferraris. It’s very bleak.

‘I had loads of books about cars, and for some reason they were the ones I liked best.

‘It probably had something to do with Magnum PI driving that 308 GTS. I loved that car, an Eighties Ferrari.’
