What Does Johnny Manziel Drive?
The fascination with Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel goes well beyond that of most NFL rookies. As a former Heisman Trophy winner who is widely regarded as one of the greatest college football players of all time, it’s no surprise we follow his on-field performance. That said, his off-the-field activities are a bigger part of the quarterback’s story. Whether he’s spending the weekend in Vegas or chillin with Drake, Johnny Football is always living in the lap of luxury. And that includes when he’s behind the wheel.
Since we’re enamored with everything Johnny Football, we thought we’d take a little time to answer the question “What does Johnny Manziel drive?”
While he may have bought a few additional cars since he signed his first contract with the Browns and began collecting endorsement deals, during his final year at Texas A&M, he was driving a black Mercedes-Benz. More specifically, it appears to be a Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
When ESPN followed Manziel for a story last year, we saw Johnny Football drive away in a Mercedes-Benz, and although we never got a great look at it, we can see a few C-Class characteristics. Certainly, the grille and side profile looks the part of a C-Class and in a story on the blog Page Six, they state Manziel drives a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. However, the grille in the photo from ESPN has two bars across the front, while the AMG model features a single bar, so it is not likely an AMG model. But perhaps they were referring to a more recent addition to Manziel’s garage.
Now that Manziel is a pro, he’ll have plenty of money to buy new Mercedes-Benz models on his own. Perhaps an upgrade to the all-new 2015 S-Class Coupe is in order? Or maybe the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class? With the nickname “Money Manziel” and plenty of endorsement deals, Johnny’s pockets will soon be deep enough to purchase the entire Mercedes-Benz fleet.
