One-of-a-kind Cadillac Escalade for sale at auctionJanuary 3, 2020
One of the main features of this full-size SUV is that under its hood there is a powerful supercharged V8 engine. This SUV, created by General Motors specifically for the SEMA tuning exhibition, is not allowed to drive on public roads.
While we patiently wait for the Cadillac to show off a completely new generation of the Escalade SUV with its giant curved OLED screen in the passenger compartment, we stumbled upon a 13-year-old copy of this full-size engine. And this is not some version of the car created by a little-known atelier – specialists of the American concern General Motors worked on this in every sense of the unique Escalade. The car itself was shown at the SEMA tuning exhibition.
The car will be sold at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction on January 17.
He has many chips that you will not find in any other “escalade” of that era. For example, the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, which was borrowed from the powerful second-generation Cadillac CTS-V, is under a convex hood. Its power is not mentioned in the announcement, but we will remind you that this engine, being in the engine compartment of the 2009 CTS-V, could produce 556 horsepower (747 Nm).
The car received a set of brilliant 24-inch wheels, as well as Brembo brakes and custom-made suspension springs. Some of the body panels were exclusive to this unique creation, like the false radiator grille. GM has also made some changes to the cabin – in particular Recaro seats are installed. There is only one serious problem with this Escalade – you cannot drive it on public roads.
