Tom Brady can own any car he wants, and he’s had plenty of them.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion’s fleet includes models from Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Bugatti.
He even collaborated with Aston Martin on a series of 12 Vanquish S coupes that he helped spec when he was brand ambassador for the automaker.
However, his perfect car is very 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.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneer said there were a lot of exotic sports cars, but most of his teammates drove 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 the size of the guy, it’s also the size of all your stuff” , Brady said.
“You’re 320 pounds and you’re a size 17 shoe, you know, all your stuff is big. It’s not just you who are fat.”

“Every time I go on a trip 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 mine, and she has twice as much of clothes in it. And she’s always like, ‘why are you bringing such a big suitcase?’ And I’m like, ‘Because my shoes are a size 13. There’s only so many size 13s I can fit in a bag before I have to buy another one.'”
“That’s why I buy your [F-150] Raptors all these years because you make, in my opinion, what I think is an amazing, almost perfect car,” Brady told Farley.
