Tom Cruise Is Never Allowed To Buy A Bugatti, The Reason Is Embarrassing

In a world where fame often equates to the keys to some of the most luxurious cars on the planet, Tom Cruise finds himself in a rather peculiar situation. Despite his affinity for fast cars and his well-documented love affair with speed, there’s one automotive brand that’s off-limits to him: Bugatti. Yes, the man who’s performed death-defying stunts in movies is banned from purchasing one of these elite machines, and the reason might surprise you more than a plot twist in “Mission Impossible.”

Back in 2006, during the glitzy premiere of “Mission Impossible 3,” Cruise faced an unexpected adversary, not a rogue agent or a ticking bomb, but the passenger side door of his Bugatti Veyron. In what can only be described as a less-than-smooth moment, Cruise struggled to open the door, a scene which, unfortunately for him, played out in front of the paparazzi’s flashing cameras. This minor mishap, seemingly innocuous in the grand scheme of things, led Bugatti to decide that Mr. Cruise was no longer suited to be a patron of their prestigious brand.

You might think, “It’s just a door, what’s the big deal?” But in the world of luxury cars, image is everything, and Bugatti’s decision reflects their commitment to maintaining a certain level of prestige. It’s not just about the cars being fast or expensive; it’s about the aura of infallibility they project.

Despite this ban, it’s not like Cruise is left wandering the streets carless. His garage is still the stuff of dreams, filled with an array of luxury vehicles that most can only aspire to own. From BMWs to Chevrolets and Mustangs, his collection is a testament to his love for all things automotive.

And let’s not forget, Tom Cruise is in some pretty exclusive company here. The likes of Floyd Mayweather and Simon Cowell also find themselves on Bugatti’s no-sell list for various reasons. So, in a way, this ban is almost a badge of honor, a membership card to an exclusive club of the rich and famous who, for one reason or another, can’t get their hands on a Bugatti.

In the end, while Cruise might not be able to add a new Bugatti to his collection, he remains a figure of fascination and inspiration, living a life filled with adventure, on screen and off, even if it means occasionally being upstaged by a car door.
