Tom Cruise has Quite a Car Collection from Classic Muscle to Bugatti
It’s never surprising to see celebrities owning supercars. However, action hero and Hollywood legend Tom Cruise has more than just a collection of exotics. While he’s certainly more familiar with motorcycles, of which he has a vast collection, his car collection is pretty awesome, too. Here are a few of the Mission Impossible star’s rad rides.
Tom Cruise has a Bugatti Veyron he bought brand new
It only makes sense for a man larger than life to have something so extraordinary. Having a standard run-of-the-mill Ferrari or Lamborghini would be too boring, right? Instead, he needs over 1,000 horsepower, four turbochargers, and sixteen cylinders. With a top speed of over 250 miles per hour, the Veyron is still one of the fastest cars in the world to this day.
According to Hot Cars, Cruise showcased his new Bugatti purchase at the premiere of Mission Impossible III. Additionally, their article states that Cruise was one of the first to buy the Veyron.
996 Porsche 911
In terms of sports cars, the 911 is every bit as iconic as Tom Cruise himself. Though the 996 is often looked down upon as the worst generation 911, it’s definitely been getting its dues lately. Though they are now the most affordable way into a 911, they weren’t affordable new!
Cruise has a black Porsche 911 from the 996 generation and likely purchased it brand new!
1958 C1 Chevrolet Corvette
In terms of cool factor throughout the Tom Cruise collection, it’s hard to beat this 1958 Corvette. Known as the C1 generation, this is the original Corvette. It was produced from 1953 to 1962. With iconic open-top styling and a V8 under the hood, this is as good as classic Chevrolet gets!
Cruise was once spotted driving the C1 Corvette in LA on his way to a steakhouse dinner with then-wife Katie Holmes. That’s a date with some style!
Saleen S281 Ford Mustang
Tom Cruise owning a Mustang should really come as no surprise. It just seems appropriate. Even more appropriate, though, is the fact that it isn’t just a run-of-the-mill Mustang. It’s a Saleen S281. Saleen takes a standard Mustang, supercharges it, and bumps the power output to 330 horsepower, according to MotorTrend.
Cruise drove a Saleen S281 in Mission Impossible III and displayed his personal car during the premiers for the film in Manhattan.
1949 Buick Roadmaster
Finally, perhaps the most surprising member of the Tom Cruise collection is a 1949 Buick Roadmaster.
The 1949 Roadmaster has an iconic and outstanding engine under the hood. It’s a 5.7-liter inline eight-cylinder engine that many folks refer to as the “Buick Straight-Eight.” According to Concept Carz, the straight-eight was good for 150 horsepower in its day. Additionally, it made an astounding 280 pound-feet of torque. Very rarely will you see an engine’s torque figure nearly double its horsepower.
Furthermore, the Roadmaster was the first pillarless hardtop vehicle ever built by GM.
Cruise purchased this beautiful lead-sled hunk of American heritage after driving one for his Oscar-winning film Rain Man.
Tom Cruise has a collection that goes on and on
These five cars only scratch the surface of the Tom Cruise collection. He also has a customized Ford Excursion, a Mercedes S Class, and a Mercedes CLK. Additionally, he has a nearly countless collection of motorcycles, too.
Sufficient to say, Tom Cruise is a gear head, and we definitely respect his collection of rides!
