GMC
Typhoon SUV. 
Eastwood mentioned this ride in a 2016 interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Avg. current price: $5,175 
Engine: 5.7 L Cobra Jet V8 
Eastwood rejuvenated the image of
Ford
’s Gran Torino Sport by making it a key part of his 2008 film Gran Torino. His production company bought the 1972 Gran Torino Sport off eBay for the film—and once it wrapped, Eastwood bought it for himself!
  • Beastly 5.7L Cobra Jet V8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor and 300 horsepower
  • 0-to-60 time of a hair under 7 seconds
  • Magnum 500 wheels, slick Goodrich radials, gold laser stripes, and a black vinyl top

Lincoln

  • 6.8 L V12 engine with 120 horsepower
  • 3-speed manual transmission
  • Produced from 1931 to 1940

1955 Austin Healey 100M

Original MSRP: Unavailable
Avg. current price: $169,933 
Engine: Front-mounted in-line 4-cylinder engine with 110 horsepower
As is probably obvious, Clint Eastwood has an eye for speed—and the fact that he owned a 1955 Austin-Healey 100M sports car shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. 
  • Initially unveiled in 1952 and could hit 100 miles per hour—a rarity during the 1950s and 1960s
  • Rear-wheel drive, a stiffer suspension, and 110 horsepower

Avg. current price: $76,000 
Engine: 6.6 L engine with 300 horsepower
The year 1977 saw the release of a very famous film: Star Wars. That same year, another very popular film was released—Smokey and the Bandit, starring Burt Reynolds. Clint Eastwood wasn’t involved in either film, but he loved Reynolds’ character’s ride—a 1977
Pontiac
Special Edition Trans Am—so much that he bought one for himself.
  • Firebird decal on its hood
  • 6.6 L engine with 300 horsepower
  • Top speed of 118 miles per hour and 0-to-60 time of 9.3 seconds

2014 Fiat 500e

Avg. current price: $4,127 to $8,062 
Engine: 83kW electric motor with 111 horsepower
A 2014
Fiat 500e
is perhaps not the type of car you’d expect in the garage of a Hollywood actor who famously said—while holding a giant revolver, for good measure—“Go ahead, make my day.” But, alas, people are full of surprises! The actor and director has been spotted many times scooting around Los Angeles, California in this fun electric vehicle.
  • Powered by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery, which offers a range of 87 miles on one charge
  • Fully rechargeable it at a 240v charging station in just 4 hours
  • Quick to accelerate and goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 8.2 seconds
