From Green Jackets to Dream Machines: Unveiling Tiger Woods’ Million-Dollar Car Collection

Over his twelve-year career, Tiger Woods has won 15 professional golfing championships and has become one of the wealthiest athletes in the world, reaching billionaire status in the process. Tiger has an exquisite taste and love for cars, even going so far as to establish a nine-year-long partnership with vehicle manufacturer Buick whose brand emblem he carried on his golf bag.

Woods’ garage hides a variety of cool cars, and the prices range from reasonable to outright ludicrous, with a few very surprising models making it in there, too. Let’s take a look at Tiger Woods’ most expensive cars and see which come out on top.

To provide accurate current value assessments of all cars in Woods’ collection, HotCars used Kelley Blue Book, Hagerty, and Edmunds. All the cars on this list have been ranked from cheapest to most expensive according to their fair used prices in good condition in 2024. Woods’ possession of these cars was confirmed through interviews and social media posts.

Tiger Woods has a few desirable cars in his collection, some of which have been news for being involved in one-vehicle accidents.  

82008 Buick Enclave CXL: $34,760

Starting off our list and selling for anywhere between $30,000 to $40,000 is the 2008 Buick Enclave CXL, a great premium SUV that takes the size of a sports utility vehicle and integrates it with a luxury sedan’s comfortable interior and fuel economy.

The vehicle provides drivers with 275 horsepower and 251 lb-ft. of torque, making it a decent drive for those who get behind the wheel. While it isn’t the cheapest car Tiger Woods has ever owned, it’s still a fairly affordable model compared to the rest of his lavish collection.

An Envista driven by Woods was even used as a first-place prize at the GamerNet contest in 2008 for players of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 and ended up being rewarded in early February of that year. It was one incredible prize, but unfortunately, the winner of the competition went on to auction the vehicle, which had been officially signed off on by Tiger Woods himself, at more than double the market value of the time. This auction was listed at an estimated $100,000.

72021 Hyundai Genesis GV80: $39,164

Sporting a horsepower of 375 and 391 lb-ft. of torque, the 2021 Genesis GV80 comes in at an average resale value of $39,164, assuming the vehicle is in good condition. As a luxury SUV, it is predictably well-rounded and suited for a myriad of driver needs despite being cheaper than most of its competitors like the Audi Q7 or the BMW X5. Its performance and associated price tag, in conjunction with its luxurious interior, is likely what earned it a place in Tiger Woods’ car collection.

However, the GV80 is one vehicle that garners some significance. It is one whose safety features assumedly saved his life during a crash in early 2021. Though his legs were badly injured, the golfer survived the crash and eventually brought more attention to the otherwise unpopular vehicle, which saw a steady increase in sales in the months that followed.

62004 Buick Velite Concept: $39,500

If there’s one vehicle worth shedding a tear over in Tiger Woods’ collection, it’s the 2004 Buick Velite. The vehicle was showcased at the 2004 New York Auto Show as a powerful four-seater convertible. However, having never entered full production, it is a car owned by none other than Tiger Woods who was Buick’s partner at the time.

Believed to have a market value of $39,500, the Velite would’ve impressed the market with its 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft. of torque. Much of the performance surrounding the vehicle is speculative as it never went into production.

Interestingly, the Velite is not the only concept car to have been gifted to Woods by Buick. In fact, he was also given a 2001 Buick Bengal a few years prior. Buick enthusiasts have taken to social media to express their interest in both the Velite and the Bengal.

52015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG: $44,015

Soaring in at a marketplace average of $44,015 is the Mercedes S65 AMG, which went for a staggering $233,525 at the time of its initial release. The vehicle packs a V12 engine and offers a ridiculous 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft. of torque. According to a Top Speed review, the S65 AMG is equally comfortable and extravagant.

It isn’t surprising that the golfer would own a vehicle with such prestige about it. Sadly, both Woods and the vehicle were found in an unfortunate state after having been pulled over and arrested for a DUI charge. Woods was found with several substances in his blood, stemming from medications meant for back pain and a sleep disorder.

42009 Cadillac Escalade: $66,700

The 2009 Cadillac Escalade is an imposing beast of an SUV that can last for more than 200,000 miles on the open road while also offering 403 horsepower and 417 lb-ft. of torque to play around with.

Its price hasn’t seen many changes since its initial release in 2009 as it currently costs $66,700 from its original $62,205, making it a car that is still worth buying fifteen years later.

Tiger Woods owned the Escalade for a short while, but it wasn’t long before the vehicle was totaled just outside of his home in 2009. Woods’ wife at the time, Elin Nordegren, was the first person to come to his aid according to Reuters, smashing open the car window to help him escape the wreck.

32009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren: $258,000

Moving onto the extremely expensive cars in Tiger Woods’ collection, we begin with the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren: a highly formidable supercar that came from a collaboration between the two automotive giants. In good condition, the McLaren currently goes for an average of $258,367, according to KBB.

It produces a crazy 617 hp and 575 lb-ft. of torque, which allows it to reach a maximum speed of 208 mph. This supercar isn’t just beautiful, but it’s also rare; only 2,100 were ever produced from 2003 until 2010. We don’t know how much Woods paid for the car, but at the time of release it MSRP’d at a staggering $495,000, so he would have easily spent over half a million dollars if we took optional features into account.

Tiger Woods Genesis

With a net worth of $1 billion, the American pro golfer can afford to splash the cash on luxury cars – as long as he doesn’t get behind the wheel.    

22011 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640: $336,000

While not as renowned a part of his collection as other supercars, it should come as no surprise that Tiger Woods owns a Lamborghini. Much like its 2002-2010 predecessors, the 2011 Murcielago LP640 packs a naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 631 hp.

The average price for the vehicle in good condition is currently $336,000 according to Hagerty, which means it has kept its value from the moment it was released at an MSRP of $369,400 in 2011.

12003 Porsche Carrera GT: $1,150,000

Having made its debut in 2003 with an MSRP of $440,000, the 2003 Carrera GT is now valued at a staggering $1,150,000, making it the single most expensive vehicle and arguably the best car in Tiger Woods’ collection. With 603 horsepower, 435 lb-ft. of torque, and a maximum speed of 205 mph, it isn’t hard to see what made the Carrera GT such a great supercar.

The vehicle, though luxurious, supposedly wasn’t a part of Woods’ collection for long. Wright Thompson, senior writer for ESPN, had this to say about the golfer’s experience with the vehicle: “Once he bought a Porsche Carrera GT, similar to the one driven by many celebrities, but one of the first times he got behind the wheel, the powerful car got away from him, spinning off into the grass near his house. He took it back to the dealership.”
