Quarterback Tom Brady likes expensive cars as much as the next celebrity. But he’s not so attached to his vehicles that he can’t part company with his luxury wheels — like a 2017 Cadillac Escalade.
Brady is selling his heavily customized Cadillac Escalade ESV edition for $300,000. It costs $350,000 new.
Becker Automotive Design in Oxnard, California customized the one-of-a-kind sport utility vehicle. Brady called the Escalade his “sanctuary.”
Tom Brady’a 2017 Cadillac Escalade Specs:
* It was stretched by 20 inches, with the rear doors extended by 10 inches.
* The roof was raised five inches and enforced with steel support ribbing so that it exceeds U.S. Federal Safety Standards and Crush Resistance Laws.
* The Escalade features extra-large, custom-made seating, including two six-way electric reclining VIP seats with electric leg rests.
* There are two large aviation-style folding tables with a burl wood finish, a 32-inch HD LCD screen, a rear 12-inch screen, a Savant-controlled A/V system and a mobile internet router that allows for multiple service providers.
“Parting ways with my Becker ESV won’t be easy. From day one it became my sanctuary from the outside noise,” Brady said in his sales listing on Becker Automotive Design. “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. Immediately my productivity went up and my stress came down. I hope the next owner will take great care of her; she will always be a part of the Brady family.”
While the Escalade was among his favorite vehicles, Brady’s collection, among many other vehicles, two Aston Martins and Bugatti, Ferrari, Rolls Royce and Bentley models.
