(Newser) – Suri Cruise’s latest extravagant plaything: a $30,000 toy car. To be fair, there's a lot under the hood—the car is a custom-made miniature of an Indianapolis 500 race car, reports Australia’s News Network. Days of Thunder star Tom Cruise bought his daughter the car because she's "been mesmerized by auto racing on TV,” a source tells the Telegraph, “so he thought it would be fun for her to have her own little car to ride in”—and it doesn’t stop there.

“If Suri truly takes to the sport, Tom plans on having a little race track installed at his LA property,” the source continues. “But for now she’ll just be going up and down the family’s long driveway.”
