Tom Brady's Wrecked Car Was An Audi LoanerS

Audi confirmed the $97,000 Audi S8 sedan that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady crashed this morning was a loaner from the company, part of an arrangement with Brady that involves the Best Buddies charity. Hence the Jersey plates.

Brady has been the honorary chairman of the charity's annual fundraiser for three years, which helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Back in June, Brady hosted the Audi Best Buddies Challenge, a series of events including a 100-mile bike ride/walk as well as a flag football game.

In 2008, Brady and Audi gave five Pats offensive linemen new Q7 sport utility vehicles.
