Tom Brady could own any car he wanted, and he had plenty.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion’s fleet included models from Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Bugatti.
He even collaborated with Aston Martin A row of 12 Vanquish S Coupes that he helped define when he was the automaker’s brand ambassador.
However, his ideal car is completely different. In fact, it’s a truck.
Brady was on the “Drive” podcast, hosted by Ford CEO Jim Farley, and the two talked about the vehicles Brady sees in an NFL parking lot.
There are plenty of exotic sports cars out there, said the Tampa Bay Buccaneer, but most of his colleagues drive trucks for good reason.
“Because they’re bigger. They’re bigger guys, and they’re going to need a lot of space. Because it’s not just a guy’s size, it’s the size of all your stuff too,” Brady said.
“You weigh 320 pounds, size 17 shoes, you know, all of your stuff is big. You’re not alone in being big.”
Even the 225-pound, six-foot-four-inch aft boat would appreciate the extra room.
“When I travel with my wife, for example, I have a suitcase, you know, and she has a suitcase. And her suitcase is about a third the size of my suitcase, and she has twice the amount of clothes in there. She’s always like, ‘Why would you bring such a big suitcase?’ And I like, because My shoes are a size 13. There are only so many size 13s that I can fit in the bag before I get another bag.”
“That’s why you buy your [F-150] wild birds All these years because you’ve been making, in my view, what I think is an amazing car, almost the perfect car,” Brady told Farley.
Brady has owned several high-performance pickups over the years and was seen attending a black camp training camp last season.
However, it is not the only car he likes to drive on a regular basis.
Farley asked Brady for some advice on what kind of cars Ford should make, and besides praising the F-150 Raptor, he said Ford is on the right track by adding electric cars. He said he loves the one who owns it, a Tesla Model S.
Brady is currently appearing in an ad campaign for Hertz promoting the addition of Teslas to its rental fleet.
“I love the fact that I have a Raptor and can drive it, but I also love the fact that I will have an electric car as well. Not having to go to the gas station is the coolest thing ever,” Brady said.
It also values the environmental message.
“It creates some awareness of what we’re doing in the world.”
