Wanna be shady with Patrick Dempsey? It’s about to get a whole lot easier.

The Grey’s Anatomy star has officially renewed his partnership with the Austrian eyewear company, Silhouette, for 2014 — and it’s giving him a chance to promote something he loves even more than sunglasses: racing!

In the promo shoot for the glasses, Patty’s all decked out in his racing apparel as a car speeds by in the background. Gotta see the picture for yourself? Click here.

We can understand why he’d be all about these glasses — not only does he look super slick, but they’re probably pretty comfortable considering they’re made without hinges or screws. We would hate for any of that luscious McDreamy hair to be sacrificed in a freak sunglass accident!

We especially love this description of the ad campaign with Silhouette from The Star: “Dempsey will wear his racing suit, emphasising his adventurous and sporty side, as well as his natural charm, of course.”

If we were going to choose a phrase to accurately define Patrick Dempsey, “natural charm” would be our first choice. You go, The Star!  

We can see more pictures from the shoot next year, which, after all, is only about a month away. Yay!

What do you think of Patrick’s new endorsement deal? Sound off below!
