Tom Brady’s Stretched Cadillac Escalade ‘Mobile Office’ Will Set You Back $300,000
New team means new ride.
As a New Englander, it was a sad day seeing Tom Brady leave the New England Patriots and head to sunny Florida. Everyone else here apparently felt the same way, as his jerseys were leaving stores' shelves faster than toilet paper during the pandemic. Luckily, you can now buy his custom-built Cadillac Escalade ESV Mobile Office and relive your fondest football memories every time you hit the road. The stretched beauty has just 13,000 miles, and it'll set you back—you ready?—a cool $300,000.
The ‘Slade was stretched and overhauled by Becker Automotive Design, a company that specializes in armoring and stretching vehicles like the Lincoln Navigator, Mercedes-Benz vans, and of course, the Escalade. The company says Brady’s ride had its roof raised by five inches, its rear doors stretched by ten inches, and the entire rear cabin rebuilt.
If you were wondering what all of that bodywork did to the Cadillac’s structural integrity, don’t worry. Becker says the SUV still meets all US Federal Safety Standards and Crush Resistance Laws. The company makes its own seats in-house, which in this Cadillac means power-reclining VIP seats with power-adjustable leg rests built-in. And it may be called a Mobile Office, but the Escalade’s still got plenty of entertainment tech on board with a 32-inch LCD screen, a 12-inch screen, and a full A/V system to tearfully watch old Patriots games on the go.
Regardless of how you feel about Tom Brady, it's hard to deny that this Escalade is quite a machine.
“From day one it became my sanctuary from the outside noise. I took pride in picking out all the customizations of the ESV; from the trim of the seats to the color of the rug. With such limited time in my busy schedule, the ESV gave me those extra minutes to study my playbook, make phone calls, and be with my family,” the famous quarterback told Becker.
The six-time Super Bowl champ paid $350,000 for the Caddy just two years ago, so the $300,000 price tag doesn’t seem all that out of line. If you’ve got the cash and want to pony up for a piece of Tom Brady’s personal life, you can find the ad here.
