Following a record setting performance in a come-from-behind victory in last January’s Super Bowl, New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady is helping to create a limited edition Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante.
The Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante Tom Brady Signature Edition will begin shipping out in the first quarter of 2018. The car was created by Q by Aston Martin (the English maker’s bespoke service), and model production will be limited to just 12 (Brady’s jersey number).
“It was an easy decision to go with the Vanquish S for the special edition - it is an incredible car to drive and is truly a work of art,” said Brady. “Going through the process of curating a unique Aston Martin has been fascinating. We started with a blank canvas and finished with this beautiful car. It’s been great to see it all come to fruition and I’m proud to share a name with it.”
The car is created by Q by Aston Martin — Commission (introduced at this past spring’s Geneva Motor Show), a new service that has designers work directly with customers to commission a truly bespoke car.
“Q by Aston Martin – Commission is the ultimate in bespoke, in fact it can even go as far as creating an entirely new car,” said Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman. Tom chose the Vanquish S as he recognizes natural athletic performance when he sees it. He has curated a beautiful, tailor-made car that will excite its owners for many years to come.”
The Tom Brady Signature Edition Vanquish S Volante features an Ultramarine Black exterior and Dark Knight leather interior, and extensively enhanced with carbon fiber throughout for aesthetic and performance reasons.
It also features California Poppy leather paddle shift tips, a One-77 colour keyed steering wheel, and Brady’s signature on the sills and stylized TB12 badges on the fenders and seat headrests.
