Hey Guy, Buy Tony Soprano’s Escalade, or Else
A little birdie told us Boston-based RR Auction had Tony’s SUV on the block.
Sopranos fans, get out your checkbooks. Tony’s 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV from the last three seasons of the award-winning HBO show is up for auction in November. Boston-based RR Auction has the famous white whale on the auction block and the consignor expects it to bring $30,000 to $50,000.
The car was originally leased by HBO from Movie Time Cars, Inc., and served as Tony’s personal vehicle. The truck was frequently used by Tony to visit his associates and old haunts like the Bada Bing Strip Club. The massive, nearly 19-foot-long tank was the perfect Tony truck: large, powerful and not in the least bit concerned with what people thought about it.
As far as the Carfax is concerned, you might want to check the alignment. This 6-liter monster was used as a rage machine in Season 5, when Tony chased down Phil Leotardo to collect a debt, subsequently sending poor Phil’s vehicle into a parked car.
In addition to being an iconic car, the Escalade ESV was signed by James Gandolfini in two different spots: the sun visor and the passenger front airbag. The visor reads, “Thanks for the truck, James Gandolfini.” and the airbag reads, “James Gandolfini.”
So don’t be a mook, and place a bid.
