Check out Hollywood legend Tom Cruise’s car collection – and find out why he’s blacklisted by Bugatti | The Sun
After more than 40 years in Hollywood, Tom Cruise is still one of the biggest movie stars in the business.
Always at the centre of the action, Tom is famed for performing his own stunts in most of his blockbuster films.
Whether it’s daredevil parachute dives or piloting planes and helicopters in terrifying-looking adventures, Mr Cruise likes to roll up his sleeves and get involved.
His roles in flicks such as Days of Thunder and Mission: Impossible have also thrown in some pretty serious driving scenes – and it’s possibly here where he developed a taste for performance cars.
A cool collection of expensive and often rare machinery is easily a match for other action stars such as Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, although Mr Cruise did have a strange encounter with Bugatti which led to a bit of a stand-off developing between the two big names, which we’ll cover a bit later.
For now, read on and check out 5 cars in Tom Cruise’s awesome collection.
