The theft upset the 65-year-old nephew of Sir Clive Sinclair — who launched the C5 in 1985 — and he is keen to find the vehicle.
Mr Bryson, of White Hart Walk, noticed a rip in his shed roof and found the 24-year-old C5 missing.
He said: “I went and got the shed keys and the door was marked. It had been damaged by a crowbar. I was so angry. I couldn’t believe it.
“Whoever took it would have had to have lifted it over my garden wall.
“It would have needed two people. Someone must have seen something as my garden is overlooked by flats and houses.”
