Tom Cruise’s most important mission is keeping his family safe. The 45-year-old superstar has a fleet of very expensive cars and all of them are equipped with bulletproof windows and are bombproof, too. “It sounds like he’s taken a page out of one of his action movies,” explains an insider. “A-list celebrities know they can’t be too careful. Tom’s vehicles look perfectly normal, but in reality they are more like armored trucks. He really, really loves his cars and he can afford the best.” All of Tom’s chauffeurs are professionally trained defensive drivers, says the insider, so they can get him out of traffic problems and protect him from possible trouble. Still, he often prefers to drive his wife, Katie Holmes, and his three children himself. “Tom is a car nut,” the insider adds. “He has practical everyday cars, classic collectibles and high-powered sports cars like the Porsche 911 Turbo. Of course he loves every minute behind the wheel, but he’s not stupid and he’s not going to take any chances while he’s driving.” In May, Tom was seen taking his 2-year-old daughter, Suri, out for a “cruise” in his tricked out SUV. Tom is often seen behind the wheel when he visits his home in Telluride, Colo. Once, he even rescued a stranded fellow driver there.
