The Cadillac Escalade is already a very well equipped vehicle as is right off the assembly line. The 2016 Escalade ESV, which is the long wheelbase version, will you set you back over $100,000 if you get it with four wheel drive and the platinum trim level. But when you have a net worth over $700 million you really aren’t concerned much with a hundred grand, and that is exactly why entrepreneur and hip hop mogul Dr Dre sent his new ESV to California based Becker Automotive Designs that specializes in turning luxury vehicles into super duper luxury vehicles to customize it.
The completely customized ESV reportedly cost Dre over $200,000, once all was said and done, which of course means that over half of that was just for the upgrades. Unfortunately we couldn’t track down any photos of what this amazing car must looks like on the inside. All that was released was a photo of Dre taking delivery of the completely murdered out Escalade in the background. But we did find quite a few examples on the Becker Automotive Design website that give you an idea of the quality of work these guys are capable of and just how wild some of these interiors can get. These upgrades are designed not like most other that you see in the car world, usually modifications are tailored more towards the driver of the car focusing on some performance aspect of the car. Its the complete opposite in the case of these big SUV projects, while they might do a few things to improve performance the main objective is the passenger compartment.
The back of these Escalade’s look like a cross between a Limo and a private jet with just about every amenity that you could think of right within reach of whoever is lucky enough to sit in the back seat of these things. Fully reclining seats that look big enough to a Lazy-Boy, a flat screen TV that appears to be at least a 55″, a full entertainment system that could rival your local movie theater, all done with the highest quality materials available today. You can see how that additional $100,000 was most likely put to use, and with it being Dr Dre we can only imagine that things have been taken up another notch if that’s possible.
