Check Out Morgan Freeman's Car Collection

In the realm of Hollywood legends, few names resonate with as much gravitas and admiration as Morgan Freeman. Though Freeman didn't get popular until his early 40s, he has reached a level of fame that only a few others can match. But unlike most movie stars, who tend to have a big and flashy car collection once they get famous, like Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, Freeman's garage is neither of those things. He has a total of four cars, and none of these cars can be considered flashy. 

Morgan Freeman's car collection consists of a pair of pickup trucks, an SUV, and a luxury sedan. One look at his cars, and it's pretty clear that he likes cars that are practical. But this doesn't mean that he doesn't like going fast. In an interview with Sports Illustrated in 2004, Freeman said that though he isn't a car buff, he does love driving cars, and he loves driving them fast. That year, he drove a pace car, a Corvette, at the Indy 500 at a speed of 143 mph. But that wasn't the fastest he had gone in a car, as he had gone faster in his BMW 745.

So without further ado, here is a look at Morgan Freeman's car collection.

4. First Generation Toyota Tundra

One of two trucks in Morgan Freeman's car collection is the first generation Toyota Tundra. The Tundra was Toyota's bold entry into the full-size pickup truck market. It was designed and manufactured in the United States and blended Toyota's renowned reliability with the demands of the American truck buyer.

Featuring a sturdy body-on-frame construction and available in Regular Cab, Access Cab, and Double Cab configurations, the Tundra offered versatility for various needs. The Tundra impressed with its smooth ride and capable handling, and its reputation for durability and low cost of ownership further solidified its appeal among consumers. The base trim of the 2000 Toyota Tundra had a starting price of $15,345.

1. BMW E65

The one car that Morgan Freeman admitted to going faster than an INDYCAR pace car was the BMW E65 (4th generation and series). During an interview with Sports Illustrated back in 2004, Freeman mentioned that the fastest he had ever gone in a car was 153 mph in his trusty BMW 745i. This was 10 mph faster than he had gone in a Corvette during the 2004 INDYCAR weekend. When asked by the interviewer if he had achieved this personal best in Mississippi, Morgan refused to answer.

The E65 745i was the company's flagship luxury sedan and epitomized BMW's commitment to innovation, performance, and luxury. One of the standout features of the E65 745i was BMW's groundbreaking iDrive system. This intuitive interface centralized control over various vehicle functions, including navigation, entertainment, climate control, and more, simplifying the driving experience through a user-friendly rotary dial and menu display. The 2002 BMW 745i had a starting price of $67,850. This makes the most expensive ride in Morgan Freeman's car collection.
