(Updated: 9/5/2023 )Novak Djokovic, a five-time Wimbledon champion, is now considered the G.O.A.T of professional men’s tennis. Djokovic became the Greatest Of All Time by defeating Casper Ruud in the 2023 French Open final. Djokovic’s long-time nemesis, Rafael Nadal, now trails with only 22 wins but, after plaguing health issues, is not expected to return anytime soon.
Djokovic’s 20-year professional tennis career has won him a total of 95 ATP singles titles, including a record 23 Grand Slam titles. He has also won 39 Masters titles, six year-end championships, and three ATP Cup titles. Moreover, Djokovic is the only man in tennis history to have won all four Grand Slams twice on three different surfaces (hard, clay, and grass). He is also the only man to have won the Career Golden Slam, which is winning all four Grand Slams and the Olympic gold medal in singles.
Here is a breakdown of his Career Grand Slam titles:
– Australian Open: 10 titles
– French Open: 2 titles
= Wimbledon: 7 titles
= US Open: 4 titles
Novak Djokovic is currently the top-ranked tennis player in the world. He is even considered to be one of the best tennis players to ever play the game. But did you know that Djokovic was challenged by the Audi Racecar team to see if their Audi racecar was faster than the champion tennis player’s serve?
“Djokovic took the challenge, and here’s what happened.”
Djokovic used a new HEAD Graphene Speed tennis racket and served the tennis ball at the exact same time that an Audi R8 LMS race car screamed past the starting line. As a result, the tennis ball crossed the finish line a split second before the Audi racecar, leaving Djokovic undefeated once again.
Novak Djokovic has always had a love for cool cars. Over his 15-year championship career, he has been seen in many different vehicles. Likewise, he endorses major car brands such as Peugeot, Audi, and Mercedes.
He loves the idea of environmentally friendly cars and even owns a couple of EVs (electric vehicles). He is often seen driving a hybrid-electric 508 Peugeot Sport, which is a combination of an electric motor and an engine.
Novak Djokovic’s complete car collection includes a Bentley GT, Mercedes Benz S500, Aston Martin DB9, Audi R8, Tesla Model X, BMW M55D, Fiat 500, Peugeot 508 Sport and has been seen in a Peugeot e-208 EV (Electric Vehicle).
TESLA MODEL X
As Djokovic is an EV enthusiast, we have been asked: “Does Novak Djokovic own a Tesla?” Well, yes Djokovic does own a Tesla.
As a matter of fact, someone recently took a picture of Djokovic getting in a Tesla Model X – Racket and all. (see picture above)
Djokovic’s relationship with cars also extends into endorsements. He has inked endorsement deals with auto manufacturers Mercedes-Benz and Peogout. As a result, Djokovic owns and drives the sponsor’s cars. Namely a Peugeot 508, top of the line, Mercedes-Benz 500s.
PEUGEOT E208 SPORT
Djokovic has become a wealthy man over his professional tennis career, and along with that, a luxury lifestyle soon followed.
With earnings of over $50 million dollars last year and a net worth of just under $150 million dollars, Djokovic has managed to build himself quite a collection of cars.
Beyond his affinity for electric vehicles, Djokovic does steer toward luxury cars. And though he is not a supercar fan, he has managed to build a car collection that includes luxury marques owned by the rich and famous.
In total, Novak Djokovic owns an Aston Martin DB9, a Bentley GT, a Mercedes Benz S500, an Audi R8, a Tesla Model X, a Peugeot 508 Sport, a BMW M55D, a Fiat 500, and has been seen in a Peugeot e-208 EV (Electric Vehicle)
ASTON MARTIN DB9
Djokovic married his high school sweetheart, Jelena Ristić, back in 2005. Since then, they have had two sets of twins. He had two identical boys and two identical girls, so now he’s a family man.
As other cars make better family cars, the Aston Martin DB9 is the one that offers peace and quiet. Out of all the cars in the Djokovic car collection, the Austin Martin DB9 is by far one of Novak Djokovic’s favorite cars.
This car is powerful, exquisite, and fast. Impressively, the Aston Martin DB9 sports a powerful 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces a whopping 540 hp. It launches the car from 0 to 60 in only 4.6 seconds. Moreover, it has a top speed of over 180 mph.
To own a new Aston Martin DB9 will cost you just over $200,000.
BENTLEY GT COUPE
Bentley has a long automotive history. They were founded in 1919 in the United Kingdom by W.O. Bentley as a car of quality, luxury, and performance. Having some of the most successful race cars of the era, Bentley’s racing days are long gone, but as a car manufacturer, quality and performance are still top-notch.
Djokovic’s Bentley GT Coupe is a great example of this. Moreover, the Bentley GT is by far the most luxurious marque in Novak Djokovic’s car collection. The price for this car starts at just over $225,000 and is by far the most owned car by both the rich and famous, as well as celebrities. It was voted a 9 out of 10 “must-haves” on CarBuzz, and is one of the few cars to consistently carry a five-star rating.
Beyond elegance, the car is fast. This massive car holds a powerful 6.0-liter engine that provides over 600 HP. The GT is geared to go from 0 to 60 in just 3.5 seconds and has a top get-away speed of 208 mph.
Peugeot 508 PSE
Novak Djokovic has a career-long relationship with French car manufacturer Peugeot and currently has a three-year International Brand Ambassador contract.
The champion has driven Peugeot vehicles since the beginning of his career. One of his favorite models is the Peugeot 508 PSE, which holds a permanent place in his car collection. When asked, this is what Djokovic had to say about his relationship with Peugeot:
Djokovic States, I’m happy to represent the great French automobile manufacturer. They are recognized throughout the world and have a deep history going back some 200 years. I recognize that Peugeot embodies French auto elegance, style, refinement, and an appreciation for a certain art of car making.”
The Peugeot Sport 508 PSE is half electric (EV) and half internal combustion engine (ICE). It has a small flat-4 with a 1.6-liter engine and two electric motors that together provide 197 hp. The car is economical, zippy, and fun to drive. Additionally, the car has an 11.8 kWh built-in battery that allows for a range of 31 miles in electric-only mode.

In combination, the EV and ICE propel the sedan from 0 to 60 in only 5.1 seconds. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) hybrid powertrain provides 355 horsepower and will race up to an amazing 155 miles per hour.
The base cost for the Peugeot Sport 508 PSE is $40,000 and can go up to $47,000 with all the extras.
OTHER TENNIS CHAMPIONS CAR COLLECTIONS
I would say that Novak Djokovic is serving a breakpoint to Roger Federer and Nadal Rafal, who both own tremendous car collections.
There are many other professional tennis players who have outstanding car collections.
Some other notable Tennis Champions that have extreme car collections are Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, and Ash Barty.
Most notable is Roger Federer, who is known by many as the greatest tennis player to ever play the game.
ROGER FEEDER CAR COLLECTION
Roger Federer is also sponsored by Mercedes-Benz. He has one of the largest Mercedes car collections we have seen. His collection includes a diverse number of some of the most notable Mercedes models to hit the road.
Get this: Roger Federer’s complete collection includes a Mercedes AMG SLS Roadster, a Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S, a Mercedes AMG G63, a Mercedes CLS 450, a Mercedes AMG GTS, a Mercedes SL AMG, and a Range Rover SVR. Now that’s one big Mercedes car collection.
Another great tennis car collector is Serena Williams. Serena William’s car collection includes an Aston Martin Vanquish and Valkyrie, a Bentley Continental GT, a Range Rover, a Mini Cooper, and a Dodge Viper RT10.
A little less known is Ash Barty. She has been known to sport around in a Rav 4 and a Jaguar F-Pace SUV. She has come a long way since her first car was a Ford Focus.
RAFAEL NADAL CAR COLLECTION
But Rafael Nadal is the king of tennis greats who collect cars. He has cars of all kinds and is one of the few to own a Ferrari or a supercar.
Although Nadal is sponsored by the conservative South Korean car company KIA, he loves to drive and escape in one of his many luxury sports cars.
Rafael Nadal’s car collection includes a Kia Stinger GT, an Aston Martin DBS, a Mercedes-Benz SL55, a Ferrari 458 Italia, and a Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS. (See the HOTCARS.com article.)
