Life is good for Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. He is reportedly dating Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and cover girl Kate Upton, and now he has said he has too many exotic cars to fit in his garage. His newest car is an orange Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, which he ordered two years ago.
“I just got it a few days ago,” said Verlander, who drove the exotic car to camp on Wednesday. “I’ve been waiting for it for like two years, so when I got it, I was like a kid at Christmas.”
The only issue? Verlander’s garage at his house in Virginia only stores eight cars.
“You can do the math,” he said. “I’ve got to go back home in the offseason and figure it out.”
His collection also includes a Ferrari California, a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Maserati Gran Turismo, a Mercedes-Benz SL55, an Aston Martin DBS and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
“That, and the Ferrari, those were the cars I had on the wall when I was a kid,” said Verlander, referring to the California he drove to camp on Tuesday. “I’ve worked extremely hard to get where I’m at, and some of the guys here have said, ‘Hey, man, you earned that.’”
