Tom Cruise is one star with a massive fan following, even though he may have lost a few votes when he chose Scientology over his marriage to Katie Holmes and fatherhood to Suri. But let’s talk about the good stuff about the man here, like Top Gun and Days of Thunder, and his soon-to-be-released Top Gun: Maverick.
Not only does the man look cool flying a fighter jet, but he also looks equally cool doing his stunts in his Mission Impossible franchise, atop snazzy bikes, and inside amazing cars. Considering he has a cartload of money, it's no surprise that he also has a garage anybody would die to get their hands on.
Of course, Tom Cruise also seems to have impeccable taste when it comes to the vehicles he rolls in, so here go 15 of the coolest cars and motorcycles from Tom Cruise’s lust-worthy garage. Which one strikes your fancy the most?
15 Bugatti Veyron: Mission Impossible III Premiere
The Bugatti Veyron is as cool, fast, lavish, and expensive as they come. No surprise then that Tom would "Cruise" in one, considering it can reach a mind-boggling speed of 254 mph. He first appeared in his black Veyron at the premiere of Mission Impossible III, and since then, has often been spotted multiple times in his favored ride.
14 Buick Roadmaster From Rain Man
Together with Dustin Hoffman, Cruise starred in the Oscar-winning Rain Man, and in it, he is seen driving a classic Buick Roadmaster from 1949 - a GM product that introduced pillarless hardtop cars as a first for its time. Cruise fell for the car and ended up buying it, using it for long drives on empty roads when he needs some anonymity.
13 Ford Mustang Saleen S281 From Mission Impossible III
Much like Steve McQueen, who tended to buy every car that struck his fancy, especially if he drove one during filming, Cruise too ended up owning a Ford Mustang Saleen S281, one of the 100 limited editions built. Not only did he drive one in the movie but producer John Ficarra also got one especially shipped for Cruise.
12 The Jack Reacher Chevrolet Chevelle SS
This is a car Cruise owned before he became a big star and could afford bigger, better, and far more expensive rides. But Cruise remembered this car enough to drive one in his Jack Reacher movies. And while it may not be a Bugatti, it still managed a cool 370 horses from a 6.8-liter V8 engine, back in the late ‘60s.
11 Porsche 911: The Perfect Celebrity Ride
The Porsche 911 is a favored celebrity car, enough for many celebrities, big and small, to own it. So Tom Cruise owns one too and it’s a good choice with its exotic design as well as a powerful rear-mounted engine coupled with a lightweight body - enough to give the Porsche 911 some serious speed.
10 Chevrolet Corvette C1: Classic & Classy
Forget the new Vettes. Tom Cruise’s preferred Corvette is a 1958 C1 and its as classic as it can be, considering this was the very first generation of the Vette. Cruise has often been spotted in it, especially when he was still married to Katie Holmes, though once he was seen having trouble starting the car. Old is gold, but it needs a ton of maintenance…
9 Mercedes-Benz S Class: Pricey Luxury
Every celebrity who is a somebody usually owns a Mercedes-Benz. Cruise is no different because one of his everyday rides is a Mercedes-Benz S Class with the best of technology spurring it, and the most comfortable of luxury in it. Of course, a car like this also affords celebrities a little anonymity on the roads.
8 BMW 7-Series, In Partnership With MI
The Mission Impossible franchise entered into a partnership with the BMW 7-Series and so in the movie, and during the promotions, Cruise is often seen driving one. BMW gifted him a top of the line model as well, and Cruise has been seen in it not just during MI film promotions but generally as well, for when he may want more comfort and less breakneck speed.
7 Ford Excursion: Big, Bold, Black
The Ford Excursion is just about as big you can get in an SUV, and its anonymous enough to easily hide a celebrity from paparazzi and over-excited fans. Cruise owns multiple Ford Excursions, and he even used three of them to divert the attention of the media when he and Holmes had Suri and needed to bring the baby home from the hospital.
6 The Quintessential Couple’s Car: Mercedes CLK
Tom Cruise loves a good top-down drive and so it makes sense for him to own a Mercedes CLW W209. With a 5.5-liter V8 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, this may not be the fastest sports car but has an indubitable style and driving comfort. He has not been seen in it post his divorce with Holmes.
5 The Uber-Expensive Vyrus
The Vyrus 987 C3 4V is as pricey as they come in the motorcycle world, easily crossing the $100,000 mark. Cruise is said to have got his as a birthday gift on his 51st birthday, and this 1.2-liter Italian chopper can cross the 200 mph mark with ease. And we all know how much Tom Cruise loves speed.
4 BMW S1000 RR: Featured In MI: Rogue Nation
The 2015-released Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation was the fifth film of the franchise, and in it, Cruise is seen riding the cool and fast BMW S1000 RR. As usual, Cruise fell in love with the motorcycle during filming and soon got one for himself too, even if the speed is about 188 mph.
3 Confederate Hellcat: Another MI Connect
The Confederate Hellcat is a cool, classic American motorcycle, perfect for those who have had OD’d on the Harley-Davidson. With a unique design that uses aluminum billet, the Hellcat is a favored motorcycle of Cruise and he rode on it for one of the many premieres of Mission Impossible III.
2 Ducati Desmosedici RR: From Knight & Day
Back in 2008, Tom Cruise starred in Knight & Day with hottie Cameron Diaz, and while the movie did great, it did better when Diaz was spotted pillion riding with Cruise on his Ducati Desmosedici RR. It is said that Cruise even gave her motorcycle riding lessons on his limited-edition Ducati that existed as only 1,500 units.
1 Ducati 999R: Another Birthday Gift
The Ducati 999R is more of a racing motorcycle than a street one, and Cruise celebrated his 46th birthday with it. While that was more than 14 years ago, he has been spotted riding it on and off, since then, once almost knocking it into a tree. A powerful motorcycle back then, it still holds its own now, much like Cruise himself.
