Tom Brady gets an Aston Martin deal

Few manufacturers of really expensive cars spend much money on advertising because most consumers can’t afford or won’t buy really expensive cars. Aston Martin has decided to buck that trend.

Via SportsBusiness Daily, the British company has announced a long-term partnership with Tom Brady, who will “curate” his own version of the Aston Martin Vanquish S.

“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,” Brady said in a statement.

“We’re looking for partnerships that make the brand resonate and to make sure people know who we are,” Laura Schwab of Aston Martin told ESPN.com. “Tom and Aston Martin are similarly aligned in their path to excellence.”

The path to excellence includes fewer than 1,000 cars sold in the U.S. every year, and the model Brady will be selling starts at $211,995.

At that price, the tires should never become deflated. Yeah I said it.

  1. Much better product that Papa Crap’s gross pizza and some insurance company known for quickly taking your money and stingy payouts.

  2. I’d buy one of Brady’s special Astin Martins, but, darn, my team increased season ticket prices again this year and, alas, once I send in my $200,000 for this year’s seats we’re barely going to have enough money left for shoes for the kids.

  3. The gap between his and my lifestyle just widened again. Jesus Tom, can you leave us a crumb? How much better can it get?

    He should be the new “most interesting man in the world.” He’d be a natural at it. The new guy sucks. Looks like Michael Phelps with a beard.

  4. More free easy money for Brady. A bit of a waste though for the company. Who the heck do you need to advertise to? The few that can afford these are well aware of them and dont need a silly gimmick of celeb endorsements to make them want to buy it.

  5. Since you mention it Mike, in cold weather all tires will deflate, no matter the cost. Release the numbers!! There, I said it.

  6. He should be the new “most interesting man in the world.” He’d be a natural at it.

    ————————————–

    Except he’s literally the least interesting person in the world. Ever heard him talk? He’s dull. Great QB, but so dull. He just has expensive tastes.

  7. Not sure how a celebrity spokesperson will help them drive sales when their limited production runs pretty well limits sales as it is. If Aston Martin has decided they are going to have one Brady is decent choice though. He is a bit of a gearhead. In addition to already having an AM Vantage over the last several years he’s had a Ghost, Veyron and R8. Not for the first time it occurs to me it’s probably pretty good to be Brady.

  8. Aston Martins include a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) because they, like the rest of the civilized and educated world, know that air pressure drops as a direct result of decreases in ambient temperature (and because they are mandated by the NHTSA in all new cars sold in the US).

  9. In a related story, Ben Roethlisberger announced that he is endorsing the windowless van in the parking lot of Moe’s strip club near the airport.

  10. He has had Aston Martins on his social media feed before without any sort of sponsorship deal so the interest seems genuine. Compare this to Peyton who never quite manages to get pizza in his mouth during a commercial and then probably spits out any fumes after the take like Krusty the Klown. “Blech, I almost swallowed some of the juice!”

    Does Brady ask his wife permission to go to the bathroom
    ————————————————————
    No, I don’t believe so.

  12. With more and more wealth being concentrated at the top in this country, maybe it’s an untapped market. People out there are buying Maybecs and Benleys. Nobody I know, but people.

    Lol as if most NFL fans can afford that car.

    ——————-

    He’s not trying to sell it to most NFL fans. He’s endorsing a product he actually uses.

    Peyton Manning endorses a beer he never drinks, a pizza he never eats and a car he has never driven. Afterward he gets into his Ferrari and drives to his mansion to have his chef cook him some health food.

    Brady endorses Aston Martin, Uggs and Tag Heuer which are products that he uses every day and actually believes in.

    People might think Brady is elitist, but that’s because he is elite and the products he endorses are reflected by the life he leads. He is genuine.

  19. “Except he’s literally the least interesting person in the world. Ever heard him talk? He’s dull. Great QB, but so dull. “

    Couldn’t disagree more. There are very, very few athletes I have any interest in listening to, but Brady’s one of the good ones. An excellent communicator, with generally interesting takes on things.

  20. Another fanboy click bait thread to get the fanboy juices flowing out of their nipple capped bottle.

    It’s Fitting that Brady is a spokesman for a product so far above Joe averages reach….and that is how Brady is above it all…rules don’t apply to him. A fraud…..but the fishes take the bait.

    No, that’s code for terripet never going to elementary school. Not sure where periods and commas go in that sentence but you can have fun twisting the meaning around if you put them in the right place.

    He’s pushing Brand’s he believes in. Why would you think Uggs is a garbage brand. It’s super high end.

    At least one guy here gets it. The rest of the posters here think Manning drives a LeSabre.

  25. I am a huge fan of Tom Brady, the Patriots quarterback, but not so much a fan of what Tom Brady pushes. From overpriced seats to Tony Robbins events, to $200 pajamas, to overpriced bottled water and healthy snacks, to now the car that nobody can afford, it’s awfully hard to identify with him. He comes off as a bit of a “fancy boy” (seinfeld expression) in that respect. That being said, there’s no other quarterback I’d rather have behind center of my favorite team the last 16 years.

    How does it feel to know that Brady and BB absolutely own your favorite team and Mike Tomlin in particular?

  27. ..but the fishes take the bait.

    Hmmm…. you might wanna wipe the spittle of your screen… it’s obscuring all the irony staring you in the face…

  28. Brady is genuine alright, genuinely elitist. But he is still the GOAT SYSTEM QB and we Patriots fans love him.

  29. How does it feel to know that Brady and BB absolutely own your favorite team and Mike Tomlin in particular?

    I am more comfortable with that than you are with rooting for a team that has been punished for CHEATING. You take the insults very personally….must be easy to sleep knowing that or even explains what cheating means to your kids with a straight face when you catch them…oh wait you probably praise them …I forgot..sorry.

    Love how all cheaters fans are still jealous of manning

    I’ll grant PM his 3-2 edge in playoff wins.

    However,

    Brady 11-5 head to head
    Brady 5-2 rings
    Brady 4-1 SBMVP
    Brady 7-4 SB visits
    It took PM 6 tries before he finally beat TB head to head.

    PM is ahead in one important stat. He blows TB away in TD/INT ratio. PM threw for 83 more TD’s than TB but also threw 99 more INTs.

    Not sure you get how the whole jealous thingy works.

  31. Brady lives a very high class life style. Good for him, he earned it. He reminds me of Bruce Wayne. Billionaire by day, Patriot Man on Sundays. Being a branding attorney, Brady is a perfect fit for a product like Aston. Meanwhile, Jake Butt, the draft choice for Denver, signed an endorsement deal with Charmin toilet paper. True story, you can’t make this up. Anyway, good for Brady.

    How did you explain Reothlisberger’s troubling past history and suspension to your kids? You probably praised him, right?

    I explained that it is better to tell the truth and pay your penalty hoping for some understanding than to lie or try to CHEAT the system……foreign concepts to Pat’s fans. They were old enough to figure it out for themselves knowing what a money/fame seeker was….nice try.

  34. @nofoolnodrool;

    Dude, you need to move on. The Stealers* have been cheating with Roids their entire existence and most certainly through all 6, ( YES all 6) Lombardi trophy eras.

    You sound like a complete imbecile calling ANY team out for ANYTHING as a Stealer* fan.

  35. When will hair plugs and UGGS Brady get a sponsor from the hair plugs company he visits on a weekly basis?

  36. “Does Brady ask his wife permission to go to the bathroom”

    I don’t know Terripet, do you ever get tired of being wrong?

    My kids understand 5th grade science and being from NH realize that colder temperatures cause air pressure to become lower in inflatable devices like tires or footballs. The only “cheating” was the witch hunt perpetrated by Roger Goodell and some butt-hurt owners.

    But I digress, tell us, how does it feel watching the Pats steamroll the Steelers game after game? Say, maybe for the ad Austen Martin should show Brady driving one of their cars over some Steelers memorabilia….what do you think?

    Dude, you need to get the facts straight. Where are the indictments on Steeler players, team management etc….. I ll wait. Dr Rydze is a default deflection used by fanboy troll’s like yourself when you run out of things to move an argument away from its core. Nice try. Infected man you need an injection of truth serum. You are way too young to remember the steroid era, notice steroid era not just Steeler steroid era. The imbecile is one who surface surfs for the truth….waves up!

  39. Most people are excited to see an Aston Martin
    Many people are excited to actually drive an Aston Martin
    Some people are proud to own an Aston Martin.
    Tom Brady gets paid to endorse them.

  40. The earlier comment about Tom Brady replacing the current “most interesting man in the world” is intriguing. Anything to get him to retire would be good for the rest of the AFCE.

    Stay thirsty, myfriends.

  41. How many players or fans would turn down an opportunity to endorse Aston Martin?

    The answer, of course, is zero, which makes any criticism of Brady for this announcement completely hyprocritical.

  42. Most people are excited to see an Aston Martin

    I am sure that’s all it takes to impress a fanboy, but if Tommy learned to be truthful I would really be impressed.

    Be honest with yourself just one time. What you actually want is for Brady to admit to something that never happened.

  44. I don’t care who his wife is, what she says or wears.
    I don’t care what he drives, eats, sleeps in, sleeps on or sleeps with.
    I don’t care what he puts on his feet or his wrist. I don’t care if he has hair plugs or is bald.
    I don’t assume to know him or his character.
    I don’t assume everything said or published by him or about him by others is true.
    My kids are raised not to hero worship athletes, we have plenty of real heroes that they can.
    I need Tom Brady to do one thing – gear up and hit the field 16 weeks of the regular season and the playoffs, and hopefully win a Superbowl.

  45. Manning has class
    ————————————————————
    Very classy, except for sexually assaulting the athletic trainer at Tennessee.
    ———————————
    Let’s not forget throwing his wife under the Narcs’ bus.

  46. To the folks above who are killing him for not being easy to relate to now that he’s pushing the AM brand, I say this:

    He’s married to the richest supermodel in the world.
    He’s arguably the GOAT at his sport.
    He’s earned over $100m.
    He’s ridiculously good looking.

    So, aside from the AM sponsor now, which parts of the above were you already relating to him?

    The dude’s living a fairy tale life, no need to hate on him because of jealousy. He endorses products that he personally uses and/or believes in – seriously, what’s wrong with that?
