Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.
One of the latest head-scratchers in the automotive industry is
's decision to partner with Tom Brady, and now, there's a new Vanquish variant bearing his name.
Aston Martin will build just 12 examples of the Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante Tom Brady Signature Edition. Incredibly long name aside, this special-edition Vanquish S is as lovely as you'd expect an Aston Martin to be, with a few extra dashes of personality scattered about the car.
Built in conjunction with Aston Martin's Q bespoke division, the Tom Brady Vanquish S sports a black-on-black motif, with a black exterior matching its black leather interior. There's a whole bunch of carbon fiber trim, a steering wheel from the One-77 and California Poppy leather on the shift paddles.
Extremely rich Patriots fans will enjoy the "TB12" logos that are found in various locations, including the fender badge and embossed on the headrests. The car is available only as a convertible, and its 6.0-liter V12 puts out the same 580 horsepower as other Vanquish S models.
Deliveries of this special edition begin in the first quarter of 2018. Aston Martin did not publicize a price, but considering the "standard" Vanquish S Volante starts at $315,775, it's safe to assume this limited model will command a higher price than that.
