This is a "yuge" opportunity to get your hands, whether big or small, on a piece of American history.
Car collectors are undoubtedly turning their heads towards the new Ferrari 812 Superfast (that name will never grow on this writer) to see if they can get their hands on what is sure to be another appreciating asset from the Prancing Horse. However, thanks to the spate of controversies going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in Washington DC, Exchange and Mart has just posted an ad for a collectible car that’s also sure to gain in value as its previous owner continues to get his name in the news.
We’re talking about the Cadillac Trump here, and before you ask, yes, that’s the actual model name of the limousine you see here. Commissioned by America’s current commander-in-chief, the vehicle is on sale at a dealership in Gloucester, UK. Buyers wanting to get ahold of the 1988 Cadillac will need a small loan of £50,000 ($62,415) but can rest comfortably with the knowledge that it’s the only one bought by the Donald after a planned run of 50 was announced (the production run ended up running only two units strong). In true 1980s fashion, there is a fax machine and paper shredder loaded onboard the car along with leather and rosewood trim, a drinks cabinet, and original black body paint.
Trump has been said to be the one who selected the interior decor although the limo's main user was said to be a member of the Trump family. It gets its motivation from a 5.0-liter gasoline engine fitted with an automatic transmission and that duo has racked up 45,000 miles on the odometer. While the limousine was actually under Trump’s possession for some time, it’s had a total of five owners and its current title holder has had the car for ten years. Adding to its desirability is its star status given that it made an appearance in a few films throughout its years. The car will be going to auction sometime this year and whatever price it fetches, we’re sure it’ll be “tremendous” given how Trump’s name has risen recently whether out of fame or infamy.
