No, Cadillac still won’t sell you a version of President Obama’s awesome limousine, “The Beast.” But if you feel like you need extra protection from your Cadillac, you can always purchase something like this armored 2009 Cadillac Escalade ESV currently for sale on eBay in Costa Mesa, Calif.
With 16,257 miles on its odometer and a slew of police-like lights, we wouldn’t be surprised if this SUV carted government officials around early on in its life. Complete with multi-layered ballistic glass, armor around the battery and fuel tank, hardened ballistic steel throughout the truck’s body, and a set of run-flat tires, this truck seems ready to take on anything that someone might throw at it, be it an egg or a grenade.
Unfortunately, extra protection comes at a price. In this case, the seller has listed this armored Escalade ESV with a “Buy It Now” price of $129,888, though you can also make an offer on the vehicle. Personally, we’d risk our personal safety and spend our money elsewhere, but if you’re the kind of person who believes in being safe at any cost, then we’ve found your ride.
