Tiger Woods' car collection may not be as wide as some other billionaires or even millionaire celebrities in the US, but it is pretty interesting from its own perspective which covers utility, luxury, and performance. Plus, Tiger Woods has been sponsored by Buick for quite a long period of time.

During that time, he was gifted a couple of Buick models most of them being the flagship or concept vehicles that never made it to production.


8. Lexus LS 460

The most affordable car in Tiger Woods' car collection is the Lexus 460 which was a direct rival to the German luxury, like the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S Class models. When it comes to reliable luxury saloons, the Lexus LS 460 is still one of the best choices, even in the used market, back in its days.

Horsepower386 hp
Torque367 lb-ft
Transmission 8-speed automatic

Top Speed155 mph

Being a premium sub-brand of Toyota, Lexus combines luxury with reliability, plus, as a luxury sedan, the LS 460 has a lot of quirky features as well. It is quite similar to what Acura is to Honda and INFINITI is to Nissan. The LS 460 model became pretty popular and was a proper rival to German competitors


7. Cadillac Escalade

If not the most, then the Cadillac Escalade is one of the most preferred American full-size SUVs among celebrities. Probably because of its practicality and spaciousness, Tiger Woods also brought an Escalade to its car collection. However, Mr. Woods' Escalade is a third-generation model, finished in gloss black.

Tiger Woods' Cadillac Escalade was the first car that started the whole accident chain reaction throughout his career. Back in 2009, Woods crashed his Escalade into a 1997 Chevy Blazer coming off from the opposite end. While the car was thrashed, the golfer came out of the accident with just scratches only.


6. Mercedes-Benz AMG S65

The Mercedes Benz AMG S65 from Tiger Woods' car collection is one of the most powerful cars he owns, or should we say torque-ful? The W222 S Class of Mr. Woods is painted in black, while the rims are painted in a shade of dark bronze.

While Tiger's Mercedes Benz AMG S65 may boast a 0-60 acceleration in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 MPH, the Billionaire golfer was caught passed out behind the wheels of the Mercedes back in 2007. It was almost a major accident situation. Luckily, Wodds came out of it unscathed.


5. 2021 Genesis GV80

Tiger might have all the luck in his golfing career but not with cars or with the car journey experience. He has been involved in several accident-prone situations but not quite as serious as the one that happened back in February 2021. It was supposed to be a good year as he then recently bought a new car - a 2021 Genesis GV80 and was having fun with its potent powertrain and SUV utility qualities.

Lightning struck on February 23, 2021, when Woods was cruising on a highway on a freeway in California and suddenly lost control of his SUV. The GV80 flipped multiple times properly destroying the front of the car while Tiger was lucky to be alive and came out cheating death with the cost of some serious injuries.


4. 2001 Buick Bengal

From time to time, Buick has stepped up its game to come up with a few concept cars that would get anybody's adrenaline rushing. Apparently, back in 2001, Buick introduced its Bengal model which was made with the goal to catch the youth's attention.

The Buick Bengal was made and came into reality whose influence was none other than the face of Buick, Tiger Woods himself. Tiger was seen on many photoshoots and apparently was gifted with a Bengal model considering being the ambassador at that time. The "AutoWeek" magazine even covered the car with a killer headline - "Dead Solid Perfect".


3. 2004 Buick Velite

The partnership between Buick and Tiger lasted for quite some time and guess what, he had the chance to get another concept Buick in his name - the 2004 Buick Velite Roadster. The car debuted back in 2004 at the New York International Auto Show.

Horsepower400 hp

Top Speed180 MPH

The Roadster had a sleek and clean design with a very distinctive grille design that made some noise in the automotive industry, especially among car enthusiasts. However, the buzz and curiosity weren't enough, and never made it to the production chain.


2. Lamborghini Murcielago

If you were a youngster in the 2000s and loved cars, it is pretty much possible that you had a poster of the Lamborghini Murcielago on your bedroom wall. The Murcielago is the dream of many car enthusiasts these days, and it was the flagship Lamborghini of its time.

Now, what do you do when you become incredibly successful? You live your dream, and Tiger Woods was no exception. The Murcielago from Tiger Wood's car collection is one of the last purely mechanical Lamborghinis that were on sale, and it is an icon today.


1. Porsche Carrera GT

The most expensive car in Tiger Wood's car collection is the Porsche Carrera GT, which is considered one of the most iconic, stupendously fast, and mechanical sports cars ever built. Since its discontinuation, the Carrera GT has only soared upwards in value, and these days, it fetches over a million dollars even if it's in just decent shape!

Do you know what Doug DeMuro and Ralph Lauren's car collection has in common with Tiger Wodds' car collection? It's the Porsche Carrera GT. Recently, Doug DeMuro has also got his hands on one of these Carrera GTs, and he describes it as one of the most engaging sports cars ever. In contrast, Ralph bought his Carrera GT way back in 2005.
