Johnny Manziel: Struggling QB, Bad Boy...Car Guy?
Johnny Manziel was perhaps one of the most highly anticipated dual-threat quarterbacks to be drafted in the last few years. For Cleveland Browns fans, he was the last hope, the second coming, the chosen one if you will. However, the team decided not to start him his first season, so he did what all young males presented with millions of dollars do, partied his butt off. He was fined for flipping off a rival team, arrested, and this February, Manziel checked himself into rehab for alcohol abuse. However, since then, he seems to have turned his life around and forgone the bad boy days in favor of love for cars. RELATED: Check Out the 2015 Nissan GT-R Here
We’re not sure if Manziel still owns this first car, but when he used to play for Texas A&M, he drove around like a baller in a matte black Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. The car features a 6.2 liter naturally aspirated motor that puts out a titanic 451 horsepower to the rear wheels. It’s a tire-shredding drift car wrapped in a respectable sedan body and was perfect for Manziel’s bad boy attitude while at school. The car just drips cool out of its quad-exit pipes.

More recently though, Manziel has been seen driving both his Porsche Cayenne and his new Nissan GT-R. The football star recently traded in his Nissan Titan pickup truck to a local dealership in Cleveland for the new supercar. In addition to trading the truck in, Manziel also signed it, and made a short commercial for the dealership to show his gratitude for helping obtain such a ridiculous supercar. While Manziel seems to still be injured, according to the Browns, he will be able to play in the season opener against the Jets this Sunday. However, he still will play second fiddle to quarterback Josh McCown until that sore elbow gets better. We suggest he not engaging launch mode on his GT-R until fully healed. That car is entirely too brutal and would likely hurt the football star even more RELATED: Saudi King Balls Harder Than Any BallerHad to give my baby a wash after a great day of practice coming off the bye week.
