The roast of Tom Brady hit hard. No one held back against the NFL superstar. However, his car collection wasn’t mentioned during the relentless rounds of jokes. The car that Tom Brady drives could have been included by multiple comics. 

Tom Brady drives a practical yet odd electric vehicle 

Tom Brady drives a Tesla Model S. Despite having a $5 million car collection he regularly keeps things simple with a Model S. 

Also, it’s painted yellow, which is an interesting choice. I’ve seen thousands of Tesla models on the road, but never a yellow one, unless it was a cab.

As of 2024, the Tesla Model S starts with an MSRP of $72,990 and the top-spec Plaid model increases the price to $87,990. 

These prices enter luxury territory but for someone who can afford $5 million worth of cars, he could go for a more luxurious electric vehicle. For example, what about the Lotis Evija, Mercedes EQS, BMW i7, or Lucid Air?

Some could say that he’s making a practical or down-to-earth choice. But according to J.D.Power, the Tesla Model S only has a reliability rating of 75 out of 100. It’s just average and may have serious problems sooner than expected. 

But on a positive note, Tom Brady enjoys helping the Earth. He shares that he enjoys driving the Model S because it’s the most environmentally friendly option in his 15-car garage. 

Brady shared that it’s important to be conscious about the impact we all have on this planet. There are things we can individually do to improve sustainability.

Plus, he thinks not going to the gas station is the coolest thing ever. But how much is he really helping? Does his Model S negate the pollution for private jet flights?

Lots of people could argue that there are cooler things than the lack of gas stations. For example, his Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is worth $3 million. It’s only one of the 450 models ever produced. 

Other cool cars in his collection include the Rolls Royce Ghost, Aston Martin DB11, Ferrari M458-T, and Maserati GranTurismo.
