The man has gone from winning Super Bowls to selling Snickers, UGGs and now, an Aston Martin Vanquish S.
Sitting behind the wheel of an Aston Martin is supposed to make you feel like James Bond, something Gaydon can owe the brand’s storied relation with the double-0 to, but times change and Aston Martin’s latest DB11 and the redesigned models that will follow could instead bring on the feeling that you’re Tom Brady. That’s because Aston Martin, better known for suave style and martinis on the rocks—shaken, not stirred—has just teamed with the five-time Super Bowl champion to sell cars.
Not that Brady isn’t classy, but usually the NFL is better for advertising Coleman grills for the best barbecue in the 50 states or a Ford F-150 pickup truck, the best-selling automobile in the Stars and Stripes. In either case, Brady has aligned with Aston Martin for a series titled “Category of One,” which will see the NLF superstar and Aston Martin’s VP & Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, the guy credited with the direction of Aston Martin’s current range, explore “The Love of Beautiful” in a series coming later this year. For the series, Brady will outline the beauty he sees in sporting moments, life and inevitably, in an Aston Martin. For the latter, Brady will curate his very own 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S.
Brady, known by some as the GOAT, will have this process documented by Aston Martin, which will reveal each segment piece by piece in its mini series. “Aston Martin exemplifies dedication to the craft of car making through a meticulous attention to detail. While 104 years of heritage are reflected in each hand-built car, with product from the DB11 to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, this brand is primed to excel for the next 100 years as well,” commented Brady. “As a long-time fan and driver I am honored to join the Aston Martin team at this special moment in the company's history.” Expect the series and the Tom Brady Aston Martin Vanquish S to be unveiled this summer.
