Find of the Day: Tom Brady’s Stretch Escalade

It takes a special kind of person to see the Cadillac Escalade and think, “looks a little small.” But then again, it’s hard to argue that Tom Brady isn’t special.

And now the Escalade that was big enough for Brady can be yours. This Escalade has been stretched by 20 inches by Becker Automotive Design, out of Oxnard, California. The rear doors have also been stretched by 10 inches, and the roof was raised by five inches, so now it kind of looks like a pop-top VW, but that also means you’ll be getting loads of headroom.

The interior has been designed to look like a private jet and in that spirit there are folding tray tables that you don’t have to put in their upright and locked position every time you come to a stop.

It also has a 32-inch HD LCD screen to keep you occupied on your long drives from Boston to Tampa Bay, though they won’t be keeping Tom entertained. And he seems a little broken up about that.

“Parting ways with my Becker ESV won’t be easy. From day one it became my sanctuary from the outside noise,” Brady is quoted as saying in the listing. “I took pride in picking out all the customizations of the ESV; from the trim of the seats to the color of the rug. With such limited time in my busy schedule, the ESV gave me those extra minutes to study my playbook, make phone calls and be with my family. Immediately my productivity went up and my stress came down. I hope the next owner will take great care of her; she will always be a part of the Brady family.”

Brady is asking for $300,000 for this behemoth, so he’s taking a bit of a depreciation hit since it cost $350,000 to build. And those savings are being passed right along to you.
