Tom Brady is apparently known for his wheels. Kind of.
The current Buccaneers quarterback recently listed his 2018 modified Cadillac Escalade for $ 300,000, a vehicle which he called his “sanctuary.”
The future Hall of Fame quarterback is no stranger to riches, after all, and recently signed a two-year, $ 50 million contract to take snaps for the Buccaneers this offseason. But in a curious move, the veteran quarterback didn’t just part ways with the Patriots this offseason, but is also looking to move on from his cherished whip he bought for $ 350,000 some years ago.
Here’s a look:
If video isn’t your thing, a breakdown of some of the car’s more gaudy features:
- Electric leg rests in the rear seating;
- Multiple LCD monitors;
- Italian leather seats;
- Burlwood trim (what the hell is “burl wood?” It sounds expensive, though);
- Electric headrests;
- Window curtains for added privacy;
- Aviation-style folding tables;
- A partridge in a pear tree (we just made that part up.)
Brady is currently selling the car for $ 300,000 or best offer — a mere $ 50,000 less than what he paid for it — but it looks as though it’s a pretty good deal for a luxury vehicle. I mean, just add a few turrets, refrigerated cupholders and machine guns behind the headlights and it’ll be a car fit for James Bond. And it only has 13,000 miles on it, which means you, fair reader, will absolutely be satisfied behind the wheel (or in the backseat) of this bad boy. Just hide the credit card statement from your significant other.
Here’s what Brady had to say about it on the Becker Auto Design website:
Parting ways with my Becker ESV won’t be easy. From day one it became my sanctuary from the outside noise. 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 play book, 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.
(Part of the “Brady family?” Well, OK then.)
Anyway, whoever decides to pick up Brady’s ride will clearly be satisfied. But for those of us who are totally comfortable driving Civics and Jettas, maybe the Bradymobile is just a bit out of our price range.
