In Las Vegas, the newest Cadillac Escalade-V 2023 was put up for auction by Barrett-Jackson. The first serial copy of the loaded SUV went under the hammer for 500 thousand dollars. This is reported by the official website of the General Motors concern.
The new Cadillac Escalade-V costs $149,990, that is, during the short 15-minute trading, it has more than tripled in price. The SUV will be delivered to the buyer with a special plate VIN 001, and branded designer shoes will be added to it.
General Motors will send all the proceeds to charity – they will go to support the Detroit College of Business and Design, where students from poor and disadvantaged families study. In addition, the buyer of the Cadillac Escalade-V separately donated another $25,000 to the college.
Recall that the new Cadillac Escalade-V is a charged version of a large SUV. The car is equipped with a 6.2-liter compressor V8 with 682 hp and became the most powerful Cadillac in history. Despite the solid weight of 2.8 tons, it accelerates to 100 km / h in just 4.4 seconds. In addition, the SUV has a modified suspension and expanded equipment. Official sales of the model will start at the end of summer.
