For the celebrity-obsessed, paying thousands of dollars for
meet and greet tickets to shake hands and snap a photo with your idol for 30
seconds is well worth the cost. However, what kind of price tag does a super
fan put on the opportunity to touch the same steering wheel and get road rage
in the same spot as your favorite celeb? For devotees of legendary football
player Tom Brady, the price of that experience is a mere $300,000.
Tom Brady, an avid car collector with a panoply of luxury
vehicles in his sizeable garage, recently placed his 2017 Cadillac Escalade ESV
for sale at Becker Automotive Design. While the price might seem a bit steep
considering you could buy three top-of-the-line next-generation 2021 Escalades
for roughly the same price, this is no ordinary Escalade.
Tom Brady’s Escalade has just 13,000 miles, features custom rugs and interiors, electric reclining seats, a 32-inch television, and a lengthened frame for an extra spacious interior. Per Mr. Brady himself, “With such limited time in my busy schedule the ESV gave me those extra minutes to study my play book, make phone calls and be with my family.” Unfortunately for Tom Brady fanatics with $300,000 lying around, the Escalade in question has sold. Lucky for you, ELCO Cadillac has several brand-new Escalades in stock if you’re in the market.
Like most General Motors brands, Cadillac has committed to developing and releasing more all-electric vehicles in the near future in a bid to go green and revolutionize the roadway. For traditionalists, this has caused significant trepidation about the future of gas vehicles.
Thanks to a recent announcement from Cadillac regarding the
fate of the CT4 and CT5, fans of fossil-fuel-powered cars and electric skeptics
can rest easy knowing that not all Cadillacs will be electrified just yet.
According to the luxury automaker — as reported by industry website Car Buzz —
the luxury automaker does not intend to introduce all-electric – or, for that
matter, gas/electric hybrid – versions of the popular CT4 and CT5 sedans.
Fans of the CT4 and CT5 will be even happier to hear that
the V-Series variants of the beloved performance sedans will don the
prestigious Blackwing badge. Better still, Cadillac confirmed that both the
CT4-V and CT5-V will have the option to be equipped with a manual transmission
for extra control. Other premium performance features like V-Mode, Super
Cruise, and Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 will also be available for the powerful
The 2020 CT4-V and CT5-V, which will be available in limited
quantities later this year, are expected to be the fastest Cadillacs ever
