It's certainly a head-turner.
The Cadillac Escalade is no stranger to celebrities, and some of its latest career highs include a TV spot with Oscar-winning actress Regina King, and tons of famous celebs including Paris Hilton and Jennifer Lopez have owned one of these luxury SUVs. The Escalade is a pretty good-looking car to begin with, which explains all the love from famous characters, and as we've seen in the past, some people have managed to make them look a whole lot better, while some have made them exponentially worse. The latest Escalade to make internet headlines is owned by none other than international reality TV sensation Kim Kardashian, and the jury is still out on its looks.
Kim Kardashian's new toy, a 2021 Cadillac Escalade Platinum ESV, is blowing up the internet with its bold looks. Platinum Motorsport is responsible for building this in-your-face machine and seems to be quite proud of its creation. The most notable change has to be the gaudy "KK Silver" paint job that would make anything from McLaren or Dodge look tame. We can only assume that Kim had the final say on the choice of color, after all, she is one of the biggest style icons the world has ever seen. Moving on to the wheels, the shop decided to equip this Escalade with a set of 26-inch alloys custom-designed in-house. They look like a set of knock-off Rolls-Royce wheels if you ask us. To further deteriorate the practicality of the car, it has been lowered, although the method of lowering is a mystery.
Unfortunately Platinum Motorsport doesn't fill us in on whether or not the interior has seen some custom work, but we're almost certain that it has seen a few decent changes. What we do know is that this full-size luxury SUV packs a 420 hp and 460 lb-ft punch from its massive 6.2-liter V8 and is offered with optional air springs and Magneride shocks for an ultra-smooth driving experience, because Kim has never liked to rock the boat you know.
