The vehicle had extensive windscreen damage and had dents on its roof.
The car, which had been hired, was stole from Portgate Close in Kilburn, after 11pm on Saturday night.
The theft was reported to police on Monday morning
Detective Inspector Jacquie Darg from Hampton Traffic Garage is appealing for anyone witnesses to come forward, she said: “We are very keen to hear from anyone who has seen this car between 11pm on Saturday night, 29th June and about 7am on Monday morning, 1 July.
“We would ask anyone who has seen this car driving around or parked anywhere between those times to contact us. After the collision it would have been very apparent that the windscreen had been extensively damaged.
