A true American, Tiger Woods had a garage full of US cars.
Over the years, the golfing legend has been spotted behind the wheel of Cadillacs and Buicks.
But that doesn’t mean Woods, 46, wasn’t spied as he drove a little faster.
The five-time Masters champion also has a Lamborghini Murcielago worth £240,000, as well as an S-Class Mercedes Benz.
Here is his amazing car collection.
Perhaps most famous of his cars, Tiger drove his Escalade into a fire hydrant outside his former home in Windermere, Florida in 2009.
Just two days earlier, it was alleged that the golf superstar was having an affair with New York nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel.
The SUV appeared to be a write-off, and it’s unknown if Tiger ever drove it again.
General Motors’ Escalade was introduced in 1999 to compete with the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class and Lexus LX.
And the luxury vehicle is usually used as a limousine for Hollywood celebrities attending glamorous events.
It carries a price tag of around £75,000.
This Lambo defies most of the cars that Woods swears by. Usually he is a jovial man who likes a spacious SUV.
However, the opportunity to own a Murcielago was too good for the golfing legend to turn down.
It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and has a powerful V12 engine.
And new, it came with a price tag that could go as high as £241,000. Not for a man of Tiger’s fortune, mind you.
When Buick designed the Bengal in 2001, they reportedly did it with Tigers in mind.
A concept car that has never been made is road to road, the company reportedly gifted Tiger One.
They also made it the focal point of all the ads, showing the impressive engine.
However, under the hood was a rather disappointing 3.4-liter V6 engine.
PORSCHE CARRERA GT
Going back to what is street legal and fast, Woods invested in a rare Carrera GT that is a collector’s item.
Today they fetch around £500,000 to £1 million at auction.
This supercar can reach 100 mph in a quick 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph.
As is well known, the Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker died in a car accident in a Carrera GT.
In the early 2000s, Tiger was spotted with a Velite – another concept car.
Again it did not see the light of day but accompanied Woods to various events where he demonstrated it.
Not much is known about the specifications of the original Velite.
However, last year Buick introduced the Velite model in China, with various modifications including full electric.
MERCEDES BENZ S65
In 2017, Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Jupiter Island, Florida.
He was behind the wheel of an S65 said to be worth around £135,000 when police stopped him.
The car was impounded, so no one is sure Tiger kept it.
And it reportedly sustained some damage before Woods was arrested, with its front and rear tires ripped and alloy wheels bent.
Thanks to a long-standing sponsorship deal with Buick, which is no longer valid today, Tiger had the choice between their models.
A mid-size SUV, the Enclave, which starts at around £40,000, was just the ticket for a drive around Florida.
In 2008, when GM had to make significant cuts, Woods’ sponsorship deal was not renewed.
It was the end of a nine-year relationship.
CUSTOMIZED GOLF CART
They’re not all fast cars, you know.
When Woods is on the golf course, he enjoys driving around in his customized EZ-GO golf cart.
According to Hank Haney, one of Wood’s trainers, the golf cart has spinning wheels and a stereo to play music.
It’s also capable of 28 mph, more than many conventional carts today.
The stable Lacrosse can cost up to £40,000 with all the bells and whistles, which is what we can imagine Tiger had.
And it appeared Tiger was coming out of retirement from Buick as he promotes the car four years after it was dropped by the marque.
The LaCrosse is good on fuel economy and has been discontinued as the brand wants to focus on SUVs.
The little boot wouldn’t have fitted Tiger to get his clubs in.
Reliable is a word that comes to mind when thinking about choosing Woods cars.
And you won’t get any safer than a Lexus LS460.
Priced at around £75,000, it’s one of the more expensive sedans on the market.
Comfort is key, with the LS460 Tiger offering plenty of room to stretch its 6ft frame.
It’s a worthy car for Tiger’s garage.
