You cannot get better power couple goals than the Brady Bunch, er, Bündchen—meaning Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen. Individually, they are powerful people in their own right, with Bündchen being the biggest supermodel around and Brady being a respected and much-accoladed NFL player in his own right. While his net worth stands around $180 million or so, hers is a whopping $360 million.
They live in a complex rather than a house and their cars probably need another house to house themselves in, pun intended. They do live a charmed life, and seemingly exude grace wherever they go, especially when they drive their fantastic car collection to get there. Of course, they have had a financial scare but like any good couple, they sailed through it minus any last-minute divestments.
His choice of cars is more about speed and thrill, while hers trends towards family-sized SUVs and hybrids. Known for promoting environmental causes, it’s not unsurprising to see Gisele in cars with low emissions and decent mileage, usually hybrids. Of course, ever since they got hitched in 2009, buying cars seems to be more and more of a joint decision so they house the best of the best in the Brady/Bündchen garage. Brady is more of a car fan with Gisele more interested in comfort and convenience. But each car they have is a technological work of art and something that can make us all cry…
Between Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, there is nary a brand they haven’t endorsed, separately or together. In fact, as far as the Dow Jones is concerned, Gisele can beat it with one hand tied behind her back. Everything she endorses was up in profits and everything she stopped endorsing sort of fell flat on the floor—and we are not kidding. Tom Brady isn’t all that far behind, either, with a neat deal with Aston Martin that got him money, got him the car, and also shot the pictures with him in his driveway! Hopefully, Aston Martin wasn’t charged for the venue! The car is a stunner, though, and the power couple looks even more stunning when in it.
Tom Brady, perhaps, has a fascination for Audi. He has three of them is his stable of cars. This one is an Audi R8 that carried a price tag of $165,000. It is an absolute dream machine that achieves a 0-60 mph sprint time in flat three seconds. This puts it in the league of the fastest sports cars we have in the auto bazaar. And with that price tag, only the crème de la crème of society can afford it. The celebrity family owns a Spyder model that uses a 5.2-liter FSI V10 engine as its heart, capable of pumping out a whopping 532 horsepower and 398 ft-lb worth of torque. Being a two-seater, no one other than Gisele gets to ride with him.
The Brady-Bündchen family owns one of the most-envied stables of cars on the celebrity planet. The good thing is that Gisele seems to be an environmentally-conscious celebrity as she has a few hybrid cars to her name. Brady, on the other hand, is all about speed. Still, with Bündchen as his better half, Brady is learning to make do with cars like the Lexus RX 400h. Bündchen acquired it for around $47,000 in 2009, the same year they got hitched. According to Autocar, Lexus’s persistence with the ever-evolving gasoline-electric technology has paid big dividends in the automobile marketplace.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost rubs shoulders with the uber-strata of the society—not just for the money's worth for but for the venerated aura associated with this legendary, luxury automobile brand. The Brady-Bündchen power couple is the proud owner of a $400,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost and they love to cruise around in it with their three kids. This beauty is fortified with a 6.6-liter V12 powerhouse that puts out 562 horsepower and 575 ft-lb worth of torque, enough to haul the heavy weight of this car in style. This is clearly a favored ride of the couple and they are seen in it pretty often.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the perfect family car for this celebrity couple because much like them, it, too, stands for luxury, comfort, and style. The Grand Cherokee is dubbed as one of the most luxurious SUVs in the auto bazaar and that’s why celebs don’t need to think twice before making a purchase. It may not be a highly-priced or ostentatious ride but it is, undoubtedly, a safe and reliable drive. In fact, this was the car that the celeb couple trusted and drove around when they were expecting their second child. Well, you do need a car that has a perfect ingress and egress for an expecting woman. Tom and Gisele have a 2012 model that they bought for $44,000.
The SL Class from Mercedes-Benz has been around since 1954, spanning six design generations. SL stands for Sports Lightweight, translated from the language of Germany. This grand tourer is one of the best luxury cars that Gisele has in her garage. This retractable hardtop convertible has a flamboyant road presence and attracts a lot of eyeballs on the city streets. Of course, with Bündchen in it, the eyeballs on it exponentially increase. This stunning sports car came with a substantial price tag of $222,000 but with Gisele's bank balance, it is more than justified. The car is an impeccable combination of sports, comfort, and luxury. That’s why it’s a perfect foil for the rich and popular.
According to Jalopnik, Tom Brady needed to be praised for the third Super Bowl MVP win in 2015. The Chevy Colorado was a gift for his Super Bowl MVP win. For some reason, GM changed its mind last minute and thought that Malcolm Butler needed to be praised for his match-winning performance, too. In fact, Malcolm’s nerve-racking performance earned him all the accolades for the team’s win. Brady never really drove this Colorado but it would have been in his garage had Malcolm not been chosen instead. Like a true sportsman, Brady tossed Colorado’s keys to Malcolm saying “It’s all yours, man.”
This is one car that is for a different class altogether. It can house four people happily and is a masterpiece inside and out. The GTC4Lusso houses a hearty 6.3-liter V12 powerhouse that can pump out a peak of 680 horsepower with an eardrum-tickling boom. A 0-60 mph sprint time of around 3 seconds and a top speed mark of 208 mph are phenomenal figures, which makes us think more of Brady than Bündchen for this one. The car’s avant-garde design, luxurious interiors, and classiness are the things that attract people from the rich fraternity to it. According to CarandDriver, it is the most practical and urbane road car the Ferrari brand has ever created.
This is one of the “it” cars; the cars that signify that you have reached the peak of your existence and plan to stay there for a while to come. Why else would put down hefty sums for a Maserati? Of course, many say that this was Bündchen's car and she added it to the Brady/Bündchen car stables once she moved in bag and baggage. Others say that this is a powerful car more suited to Brady. But who cares, they both have a Maserati now. It’s more of he drove, she drove hearsay when all we want to hear is the sweet, sweet sound of that V8 revving under that gorgeous hood.
Tom Brady is a huge Audi fan and he has a handful of them in his garage. He goes for an upgraded version every time he makes a purchase upping the Audi ante. Back in 2010, he owned an Audi S5 that was incidentally hit by a minivan. The driver of the minivan reportedly jumped the traffic signal and banged into Brady’s favorite machine. He was on his way for a practice session when it happened. Luckily, Brady had a narrow escape but one of the minivan passengers was hospitalized. The rash driver was later booked for speeding, and more, while Tom sent his darling ride to the repairmen.
Gisele, unlike Tom Brady, loves her SUV collection. Any woman with three kids would! The BMW X5 was, in fact, an upgrade over the Grand Cherokee she owns, as it is around $20,000 costlier than the Jeep. She is also fond of hitting the streets with her entire family for finishing off some errands and a luxury SUV fits the bill in this particular department. This is the kind of car Gisele may not like to show off in but it's a practical choice. This ride is perfect for her to lug around weekly shopping stuff with her young children comfortably. Plus, the X5 comes equipped with BMW’s class-leading superfluities, so luxury hasn't been given any misses here.
The Bentley Mulsanne is as stately as stately can get in cars. You’d expect a queenly wave from one of the windows if it drove past you on any road but with the Brady/Bündchen Mulsanne, you’ll probably see a lot of legs instead. This car is so named after the Mulsanne corner of the Le Mans circuit and this is not a car meant to speed too much (or save the earth, for that matter). It’s a car meant to take you from one place to the other in perfection and make jaws drop while it does that. It could be Brady’s but it suits Bündchen far more.
The TB12 has a special place in Tom Brady’s heart. The Tom Brady’s Signature Edition Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante is limited to just 12 examples with a massive price tag of around $360,000. The car is based on the legendary Vanquish S Volante and is the product of collaboration between Tom and Aston Martin. According to Aston Martin, Tom believed that the Vanquish S was an ideal base for the Special Edition as it is an incredible car to drive and a true masterpiece. His work of art, TB12, TB (for Tom Brady) and 12 (as in both his jersey number and the fact that only 12 are being sold), is also a masterpiece and something the Brady/Bündchen garage will remember for years to come.
The Escalade is a mammoth SUV and is dubbed as Cadillac’s first major foray into the SUV bazaar. In fact, due to its gargantuan size, it even fits the category of a truck. This one came as a reward for Brady netting the second Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award. This Cadillac was the car giveaway sponsor during that time. This luxurious Escalade ESV is a gas guzzler that came at a hefty price tag of around $70,000 in 2004 and we doubt that Bündchen is too happy with it. Her solution? Get another Caddy! More on that later.
The Lexus GS 450H uses a class-defying Lexus Hybrid Drive that sets the company apart from its rivals in the auto bazaar. This is one ride meant for the environmentally conscious buyers. And who better than Bündchen to get one? The car may not be an outrageous one to have in the garage but it definitely attracts buyers with a taste for intelligent cars. The Brady family owns a 2010 model that is roughly around $57,000. With a net worth of more than half a billion combined, they can easily have the best in their bay. However, the Lexus GS 450H is not about money, it is about driving a low-emission, eco-friendly car.
Frankly, look into any celebrity’s garage and chances are that it would house a Caddy Escalade. The Brady/Bündchen garage already has one. Now, Caddys are not cars that pass by quietly. The very idea of a Caddy is to be showy and in your face, with the maximum possible luxury and style. And the Escalade is for the hip new money in town—with all the space a growing family needs and all the backing that a Caddy brings. This may be less of a Brady decision and more of a Bündchen one, though, considering it’s a family-sized car and a hybrid, at that. But all’s well that ends well, right? But one more Escalade is a bit much, right?
This isn’t a car for the weak-hearted, be it speed, performance, or bank balance-wise. This is one of the cars that made Ronin famous. Or was it vice versa? Anyhow, the Audi S8 is a powerful work of art, even though the speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. The car is less of a Brady choice and more of a Bündchen one because it matches performance with style, luxury, and all the works. It is not a speed monster and neither is it too powerful to be brought under control. It’s just the perfect car for a supermodel to be seen it, be it self-driven or chauffeured in style.
Now, if you are wondering how this power couple likes to get around in town, well, look no further than the Range Rover. Note that this model could be the Range Rover HSE LUX or the SC—but either or is a good choice. It’s a Range Rover, for Pete’s sake! Now, imagine driving into Wal-Mart with this one for a power couple’s power grocery shopping trip. Tends to leave an impression, right? And this, too, is no gas guzzler and manages a neat 20 mpg in cities—yet again, this seems to be another environmentally conscious choice of Gisele.
Now, what’s a power couple without a Ferrari? This is clearly Brady’s ride and perhaps one of the most expensive in their garages. It has everything that Brady admires in cars—it’s fast, flashy, unmissable, and relatively indestructible. Whoever heard of crashing a Ferrari? This one is in a bold red and that's half of the colors Brady likes his cars in (the other half is black). With Gisele preferring more of family-sized cars or environmentally happier hybrids, clearly, this is Brady’s ride through and through. Though, to be fair, Gisele would look absolutely stunning in it. And on her off days, we are pretty sure she steals the keys for a spin, too.
The Bugatti Veyron was named after a world-renowned French Grand Prix motor racing champion, Pierre Veyron. Its Super Sports variant was unveiled in 2010 and cost this celebrity couple a whopping $1.7 million. The massive price tag is justified, though, as it was a limited edition with just 30 units on offer. Plus, it hits 60 mph from zero in less than 2.5 seconds. The car's 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged, W16 powerplant boasts of astonishing output figures, rated at 1,184 horsepower and 1,106 ft-lb torque. It is capable of achieving a massive top speed but is electronically limited to 258 mph to save its tires from disintegrating.
