There’s sort of a mutual respect for car ownership: it’s your vehicle, do what you want to it. We can judge, but it’s not our vehicle at the end of the day. Though, we will say, this is certainly an interesting conversion and someone has undertaken quite a bit to make it happen.
What your looking at is indeed a Cadillac Escalade, spotted by Doug DeMuro outside of an undisclosed airport. Upon closer inspection, it’s no ordinary Escalade. The front end has been completely converted with Rolls-Royce Phantom parts, and they look legitimate, too.
The front grille and headlights flow pretty evenly into what may be a custom hood, though there’s no knowing if these parts are genuine. If these aren’t genuine parts, we seriously commend the owner for at least doing a quality execution. There are even rear-hinged doors from the looks of it, a trademark Rolls-Royce attribute.
It doesn’t look half bad, either. We’ve certainly seen more horrendous mashups in our lifetime. This ranks pretty low on the “beaten with ugly stick” scale.
