Despite problems, the 1958 Corvette C1 is considered one of the most desirable GM cars to ever hit the roads.


6. 1976 Dodge Colt

One of Tom Cruise’s first cars was the 1976 Dodge Colt, which was a rebadged Mitsubishi Gallant. Back in the day, the US was facing an oil crisis, and cars started to get smaller and smaller with tinier four-banger motors.

It was a direct rival to the likes of the Honda Civic, Ford Pinto, Toyota Corolla, and Chevy Vega, and Dodge offered the Colt in two body styles, a four-door sedan, and a two-door coupe.

The Dodge Colt used a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated inline-4 engine that produced about 79 horsepower and 86 lb-ft of torque, quite close to today’s Mitsubishi Mirage. Dodge offered two transmission options in the Colt, a 5-speed manual and a 3-speed automatic.


5. 2010 Ford Mustang Saleen S281

The 2010 Ford Mustang Saleen is the perfect example of an all-American muscle car. Priced at around $60,000, Saleen did its magic to the stock car and Ford’s 4.6-liter V8 engine offered 485 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The engine was mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and RWD was standard. Capable of doing 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, surely not for the faint-hearted.

Tom Cruise used this crazy muscle car tuned by Californian tuners for his everyday commutes. Saleen made the Mustang more powerful by using a VI. 5 twin-screw supercharger and a dual-stage intercooler, increasing the power output by almost 150 ponies. Tom Cruise’s metallic orange Mustang Saleen is instantly recognizable but we are sure you would miss it within the blink of an eye


4. 1996 Porsche 911 (993)

Tom is a big-time Porsche lover, and there's no way of hiding it. Over the years he has bought several Porsche 911s, and sold many as well. But the 1996 Porsche 911 (993) remains one of his constant, and it should be as it is a modern-classic that has been constantly appreciating in value.

3. 2000 Ford Excursion 

The 2000 Ford Excursion owned by Tom Cruise is not the fastest or the rarest car but it is used as a decoy. The large boxy SUV was bought for $70,000 and it was used by his ex-wife Katie Holmes who was then pregnant.

The nine-seater SUV was modified and nearly two thousand man-hours went into electrical work, installing ballistic-proof roof panels, special TC begin,g, and premium veneer inside the cabin.

Tom Cruise’s Ford Excursion has also been a part of HBO’s Going Clear documentary which showcased that Cruise underpaid Church of Scientology followers to trick out his exotic and exclusive vehicles. The ballistic tank-like SUV was used by Tom Cruise several times to stay away from paparazzi lenses and it surely served him well. The Excursion was also available in 6.4-liter V10 and 7.4-liter V8 diesel engines.


2. Mercedes-Benz S-Class

For some luxurious commutes to shoots and airports, Tom Cruise used a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The S-Class has been the epitome of luxury and is the flagship sedan from Mercedes-Benz.

1. 2005 Bugatti Veyron 

Tom Cruise's Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is the most expensive and exotic car in Tom Cruise’s car collection. The Veyron doesn't need an introduction and is a perfect combination of power and elegance.

Tom Cruise splurged nearly $1.9 million to buy one of these. Powered by an 8.0-liter W16 engine, the Veyron broke several records and set new benchmarks that were previously thought impossible. The power output stands at a mighty 1,001 hp and 921 lb-ft of torque.
