The aggressive armored exterior hides a stunning interior with cutting-edge tech and toys.
Have you ever thought the Cadillac Escalade isn’t long enough? Well, somebody apparently did because the stretched Escalade you’re looking at here is a whopping 18-feet long, transforming it into a luxury mobile office. Talk about excessive.
Appropriately named the "30" Extended Cadillac Escalade Viceroy Edition”, the stretched SUV is made by Lexani Motorcars, a company that specializes in custom luxury vehicles. Last year, the same company converted a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van into an Extreme Terrain Vehicle.
Inside, the hi-tech cabin is generously equipped with "numerous unique proprietary upgrades” including an electronic partition designed to carry a curved flat-screen television. It’s also fitted with several Apple iPads, upgraded air conditioning, a security system, a raised ceiling with ambient LED and vivid star-liner lighting, and video conferencing.
Onboard entertainment includes a PlayStation 4 console, and Lexani also offers a VIP package that includes luxury champagne flutes, quality crystal old glasses, and suede and leather line airline table add-ons. Elsewhere, the swanky leather seats are diamond-stitched, and the cabin also comes equipped with airline-style tables.
For security-conscious owners, Lexani also offers up to B7 level armoring which "maintains the original appearance and design with superior optics.” Pricing details haven’t been revealed, but if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.
A new Cadillac Escalade starts at $74,695, so the Extended Viceroy Edition will likely command a six-figure asking price. It's unclear if the powertrain has been modified to accommodate the extra weight, but the standard Cadillac Escalade is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that sends 420 hp through an 8-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels or an available all-wheel drive system.
