• Tom Cruise buys daugher Suri a $30,000 mini replica of an open-wheel race car

Ordinarily, Suri Cruise is someone we’re not too keen to talk about. It’s not that we don’t like her, but she’s just someone we don’t ordinarily associate with cars.

Apparently, we’re wrong.

Not only is the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes into cars, she’s actually a big fan of auto racing. You’re probably wondering by now how on Earth a three-year old is into something like that but her affection for the sport has actually prompted daddy-o to buy her a custom-made miniature replica of an open-wheel race car that costs a whopping $30,000.

That’s right; it’s the price of an actual car!

For the life of us, we have no idea how Suri ended up liking auto racing except that she may have watched one too many re-runs of Days of Thunder. But being given a replica of a open-wheel race car that costs $30,000? At an age where she can’t even spell NASCAR?

That’s just beyond absurd.

Well, he can afford it anyways so I don’t see anything wrong with it. Except for is the car safe for a young kid like Suri? Where would we see her in the next 20 or 30 years?

$30K was not a big deal for Ethan Hunt and just for the happiness of his little daughter, sky is the limit. Of course you can’t believe that I child like Suri will not have any affection on cars yet you forget that Tom Cruise is a fan of car racing and obviously their bonding moment could be on the race track.

That is really absurd, I think it is all for publicity. For their family to look glamorous. I just hate this kind of lifestyle of rich and famous. No kid is aware of how beautiful cars are. Maybe with toys but not with actual cars.

Just when I thought that being the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is lucky enough but here comes Suri saying that she’s a big fan of auto racing.

She’s something we all should look forward to! Who knows, 20 years from now, Suri would the F1 champion.
