If you're buying an Escalade, there's a good chance that even the Platinum Edition ESV won't be enough for you. That's why companies like Becker and STRUT exist, so that you can shine like one of the brightest stars in the multiverse. When these two companies get together on something... well, you'll probably need tinted goggles to behold it. So it's with a bang that they introduced a special edition Cadillac ESV limo.

How do you top platinum? With a floor-to-ceiling leather interior, where you'll enjoy a home -- or is that limo? -- theater system, broadband Internet, a wall-mounted computer screen... and the company of your statuesque personal assistant with the Eastern European accent. Check out the full press release after the jump, and the hi-res photos below. Now where did that recession go again... ?

PRESS RELEASE

Becker Automotive Design Partners with STRUT to create Custom Escalade Limousine

Becker Automotive Design, Inc., known globally for their unique custom limousine and coach conversion vehicles, has partnered with bespoke custom automotive designer STRUT to create a special-edition Cadillac Escalade ESV for Becker's exclusive global clientele.

The new Becker/STRUT Cadillac Escalade ESV combines an unmatched blend of privacy and European luxury interior craftsmanship with cutting-edge mobile office capabilities in a floor-to-ceiling custom-leather interior designed for comfort, convenience, and ergonomic utility. Integrated into the vehicle is an impressive Apple iPod® ready audio-video system featuring satellite HDTV, DVD, and digital surround sound that yields picture and sound quality rivaling those of any high-end home audio or theater system. Becker has chosen only the finest high-end components from Alpine, JL Audio, LG, Dynaudio, and other manufacturers, all controlled by a custom Crestron touchscreen using proprietary Becker Automotive Design software.

While the Becker/STRUT Escalade ESV offers luxurious accoutrements, it's as ready for work as it is for play, with a sophisticated onboard computer system, broadband Internet connection, and full printer/scanner functions. Better still, whenever the ignition key is engaged, this superb mobile office automatically "smart boots," and elegantly shuts down when the key is removed before exiting the vehicle.

The exterior of the Escalade ESV features a custom-crafted, and meticulously tooled jewelry collection from STRUT featuring a woven, diamond-mesh front grille and surround with matching side vents, all created from the finest stainless steel available and highly polished for style and durability that will withstand all weather conditions. Each piece in the collection bears the distinctive STRUT shield announcing to all that this vehicle stands apart from the crowd. Completing the Becker/STRUT Escalade ESV signature collection is a set of Icon Wheels, also by STRUT.

      Windows XP? That's weak!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Like this would be in demand right now.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Indeed. I hate when people with these types of vehicles complain about gas prices, because it is obvious that those people really should not be driving such vehicles. They are probably those people with 0 down, a 60 month loan at high interest and barely keeping up with their monthly payment while living in a terrible apartment that barely keeps the rain out.

        Or people who pawn their wedding rings so they can "make the next payment on mah rreeeaaams"

        People buying Escalades, not to mention this particular model, don't care about gas prices. Of course gas prices and oil per barrel are currently dropping, contrary to the "6 dollar a gallon by end of summer crowd" that likes to jump in threads about gas cost.

      I think is stunning.

      I am practically choking on my own tongue while typing this, but that is actually pretty tastefully done. The grill might be a little much, but the interior actually looks good and is devoid of the usual limo Vegas disco nightmare treatment.

      Not Vista, Thank God.

      it's not so terrible...I saw a stretch dodge charger yesterday.

      that was terrible.
      • 6 Years Ago
      wish i had one
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm so glad other people like this. I thought I had been in Vegas too long! It's cool.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I gotta say, I kinda like it. If you wanted something really nice inside, but not as flashy as a Rolls, why not this? I'd take mine with stock rims and grill, actually. Maybe even based on a Yukon XL Denali instead, to be even less conspicuous.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed! The exterior is way too gaudy. The interior is gorgeous, though!
      • 6 Years Ago
      all thats missing is the gawdy mirror top table to snort rails of coke off of.

      or is that what the statuesque personal assistant with the Eastern European's ass is for?

      • 6 Years Ago
      When I clicked on the interior photos I expected to be underwhelmed, instead I'm very impressed.

      Not only is it tasteful, it even looks rich. That Escalade is certainly Presidential limo quality.
