Schwarzenegger likely obtained it through a surplus sale by the U.S. military and then modified it for civilian use in the city, as per various outlets the tank is currently on display at his personal ranch, to serve as a reminder of his time serving in the Austrian army. In the past, the tank was regularly featured in his social media posts.

Car collection

The former Governor of California has a huge collection of cars but he is best known for making the iconic Hummer available to civilians. In the past, the Hummer was only made for the U.S. military by AM General and it was Arnold who persuaded them to make it available for the masses. Thus, the Hummer was introduced into the mass market for people in 1992.


Schwarzenegger owns several of these cars, including a military-style Hummer H1 without doors. The massive automobile features long antennae, no doors, huge tires, and a big noisy, powerful engine. Since he is known to be an advocate of electric vehicles and promotes the use of clean energy, he owns an electric Hummer as well. He added the red electric Hummer to his vast collection in 2019 and shared a video of him driving the vehicle on Instagram.
