Tom Brady signs endorsement deal with Aston Martin, will pitch $211,000 car
Brady currently has endorsement deals with Under Armour, Tag Heuer and UGG
After a lifetime of disappointment, Tom Brady has finally caught a break. The five-time Super Bowl champion and future first-ballot Hall of Famer who happens to be married to a supermodel, and at 39 is playing the best football of his career, can now add Aston Martin pitchman to his bio.
The British car manufacturer announced Friday that it signed Brady to a multi-year endorsement deal. Brady will pitch the DB11, which retails for a cool $211,995.
For some perspective, for one DB11 you could buy 17 shiny new 2017 Nissan Versas, which start at about $12,000.
"Tom is an inspirational leader and athlete who is clearly aligned with our view of Aston Martin," said Aston Martin's VP & Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman. "His performances on the football field – not just recently but throughout his career – are an inspiration for us all. My team and I are looking forward to this creative collaboration as we continue to roll out Aston Martin's 'Second Century' plan."
Brady added: "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. 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."
Not only will Brady be a spokesperson for the car, he'll also create his own version of the company's Vanquish S, of which only a dozen will be made and sold to the public.
In the meantime, Brady remains focused on his day job. He'll turn 40 in August but said recently that he feels like he can play at least five more years.
"I always said my mid-40s," he said, "and naturally that means around 45. If I get there and I still feel like I do today, I don't see why I wouldn't want to continue."
