Tom Cruise Car Collection – from a classic roadster to a modern day luxo-barge
With several hits up in his sleeve, Tom Cruise has gained quite a stardom in his lifetime. The man hasn’t stopped yet, for he already has some action-packed movies up in his future kitty. The actor is also known for his love for speed, which is evident from the cool choices of cars and motorcycles he is seen in his movies.
Unlike other celebrities who are seen buying flashy new offerings, Tom Cruise has a good collection of premium cars and some antique ones, some of which have made their appearances in his movies. Following are some of the cool cars owned by Tom Cruise:
This car needs no introduction, for it held the record of the fastest production car in the world for quite a long time. Tom Cruise owns a black-coloured Bugatti Veyron, which he drove to the premiere of Mission impossible III. The Veyron owned by him is the 16.4 version, which is powered by a massive 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 petrol engine. With a maximum power output of 1001 bhp and a maximum torque output of 1250 Nm, the Veyron hits a top speed of an incredible 415 kmph. The car is also capable of hitting 100 kmph from a standstill in 2.5 seconds.
Tom Cruise fell in love with the beige-coloured 1949 Buick Roadmaster while shooting for the Oscar-winning movie, Rain Man. Such was the appreciation for the Roadmaster, that Cruise ended up buying the classy looking two-door open-top car. The Buick Roadmaster is one of the most beautiful looking retro cars in Tom Cruise’s garage and is powered by a 5.2-litre V8 engine. The engine makes a maximum power output of 150 bhp and a peak torque output of 379 Nm, which are much lower figures for a present-day V8 engine.

BMW 3-Series E30
BMW has had a long association with the Mission Impossible franchise which gave Tom Cruise iconic stardom. However, before Cruise was seen in swanky M3, M5 and i8 in the MI franchise, the Hollywood actor had got himself a third-generation BMW 3-series, which was popularly known as E30. This is one car he acquired in his early days of stardom. The BMW 3-Series E30 was available between 1982-1990 and was offered with a host of engines ranging from 1.6-litre to 2.7-litre. However, it is not clear which version of the E30 was bought by Tom Cruise.
