• Audi gifts Tom Brady with new car after recent crash episode

Apart from a recent crash while driving an Audi S8 – and an embarrassing loss to the New York Jets, too – life’s been pretty good for Tom Brady.

He’s married to Giselle Bundchen, he just signed a $72 million extension with the New England Patriots, and he’s got a new car – and one he got for free.

After crashing an Audi-owned S8 that made national headlines, Tom Brady was the beneficiary of a brand new Audi vehicle. We don’t know how somebody could crash a car that was owned by the automaker and get a free car for it, but apparently, that’s how Tom Brady rolls. Okay, so he’s partnered with the company for a number of charities throughout the years, but still, a free car for crashing another one?

We don’t know what Audi gave him, although rumors are spreading that it’s actually a 2011 S8 model, a newer – and more awesome – version of the car he crashed last week. Audi didn’t elaborate on the gift either with US boss Johan de Nysschen only saying that “we put him in a new car”.

Whatever model Audi gave Brady isn’t really important. What’s important is that being one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL certainly comes with a lot of perks.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
