Tom Brady Gets a New Audi After Wrecking Loaner

Tom Brady's Audi S8 that was wrecked on Sept. 9 in Boston has been replaced. The Audi S8 sedan was a loaner from Audi. Since the New England Patriots quarterback is one of Audi's celebrity clients who works with the charity Best Buddies, which Audi sponsors, the automaker has given Brady yet another vehicle to replace the one involved in the two-car Back Bay area accident, where Brady reportedly lives.

"We put him in a new car," said Audi U.S. Chief Johan de Nysschen in an interview at an introduction event for the new A8 in Los Angeles, USA Today's Drive On reports.

Brady wasn't injured in the crash and went to practice right after it occurred. At more than $90,000, you'd expect a luxury sedan like the S8 to protect its driver and passengers in an accident.

Tom Brady wrecked Audi S8

The Audi S8 has an MSRP of about $96,000. Tom Brady's auto loan payments would be $1,938 over four years at 6 percent and a 20 percent down payment.

Brady didn't pay anything for the wrecked Audi though. Since the Audi S8 was a loaner from the automaker, it's likely even the insurance policy was through Audi or the Best Buddies charity.

Brady recently signed a $72 million contract extension with the Patriots, Boston.com reports. For that kind of money, Tom Brady could buy a few Audi S8s without blinking an eye. Do you think Brady should have accepted another free Audi after wrecking the other one? Let us know in the comments section below.

Brady should have donated 96k to the charity and not taken the car. Horrible what these athletes expect to be given for free in this economy.

Maybe if Tommy boy Brady wasn't so concerned about his free luxury car he could have focused on not getting RUINED by the Jets.

It's sickening but not surprising that a rich New England liberal like Tom Brady would get a free car after almost killing some poor man with his last one. I'm sure Brady couldn't take any time out of his busy schedule to even visit the man he hurt. We need more role models who are real Americans like Brett Favre and less celebrities like Tom Brady.

@Sarah: Are you on crack? The driver of the other vehicle ran the red light and has a history of doing so. Wake up!

Tom Brady was not the cause of the crash, he had the green light. the driver of the other car ran a red light and tom couldn't avoid the crash. though i don't think tom needs a free car. he should donate that money to charity, or even directly to fans in need of financial help.

Audi-gate has hurt Brady in my eyes. Taking payment to represent a charity is greed.
