Here’s Why Tom Hiddleston’s Views on Luxury Cars Changed After This Happened
Everybody knows Thomas William Hiddleston, the English actor who played the infamous Loki in Marvel’s “Avengers” franchise. He played the part of Asgard’s rightful heir, Thor’s brother. There was hardly anyone who didn’t fall in love with his funny villain antics and his heroic death at the hands of Thanos.
But although his onscreen interests were pretty much evident, Hiddleston’s real-life likes and dislikes have always been somewhat of a mystery. For one, several of his fans probably don’t know that the famous actor doesn’t really fancy luxury cars.
Well, you read that right. It’s hard to believe that a celebrity like Hiddleston wouldn’t be into the luxurious car segment, but it’s true. In fact, the actor once drove a Peugeot 106 (as claimed by a trusty source who also said that he got the car thanks to his first paycheck from HBO).
And if you know anything about luxury cars, you probably know the Peugeot is an average looking hatchback that’s usually sold in dull colors. Totally not something you’d expect a celeb like Hiddleston to drive.
Apparently, Loki from Avengers believed that as long as a car can fulfill the main aim of transportation, it’s cool. Wow! He was in love with the little four-wheeler and owned it for almost 10 years. He took it for rides all through Spain and France too. That was until the vehicle was burgled and damaged. Ouch!
So after being a rare celebrity without a luxury car in his garage for a while, the one-time Golden Globe winner bagged a great advertising deal with Jaguar. And in case you didn’t know, it’s the norm in the celebrity world that if you’re advertising with a car brand, you drive their car in real life too. So after driving around a Jaguar for some time, it was only natural for the actor to fall in love with the beauty.
They say if you hang out with energetic people, you get their energy. It seems that’s what happened to the man who looked at cars as a sole means of fulfilling the transportation goal! By the end of 2015, Tom Hiddleston had a Jaguar F-Type car parked in his afore-empty garage.
Today, Hiddleston hardly goes anywhere without his Jaguar. After all, the car is a massive improvement over the Peugeot 106 with a power-packed 3.0-litre V6 engine, 340 horsepower, and 332 lb-ft torque. Who wouldn’t love a speed beast that could go from 0 to 60 in just 5.1s!
Hiddleston absolutely adores driving around in his supercharged beauty. Terming it as “huge fun to drive,” he admits the Jaguar has revamped his thoughts on luxury cars once and for all. Funny how one’s opinion can change over time!
