General Motors has pulled the sheets on the new Ballerifiq, a new trim for the latest fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade that promises to deliver the ultimate in luxury appointments and unmatched, lavish style.
Following Cadillac’s latest naming conventions with the -iq suffix, the Cadillac Escalade Ballerifiq slots in at the top of the fifth-generation trim level lineup with a range of opulent details, starting with a unique exterior highlighted by a solid 24-karat gold grille and gold pin striping that runs down the flanks. Diamonds are also mounted inside the headlight housings.
All that front end flash is complemented by a unique gold chain draped across the front fascia, which is matched with a wearable chain included as standard with the vehicle. What’s more, the front Caddy crest is detachable and can also be worn, if desired, with the included gold chain.
The stance was dropped, with the Cadillac Escalade Ballerifiq riding low over a set of platinum-plated 25-inch wheels. Further platinum plating was added to the window surrounds and various trim bits. Spinner-style wheels are optional.
Moving inside the cabin, the new Cadillac Escalade Ballerifiq is standard with the latest comfort and entertainment features, including an 80-inch widescreen mounted in the headliner and a top-shelf hi-fi stereo system capable of producing over 200 dB of sound. The SUV is also equipped with a unique “Make It Rain” mode wherein passengers can load a stack of bills into a slot in the center console, which then dispenses the cash in a shower of money above and behind the vehicle as it rolls down the street.
“The Cadillac Escalade is already an icon of affluence, but the new Ballerifiq ups the ante even further,” said Cadillac spokesperson April Firths. “Simply put, this SUV is the last word in luxury motoring,” she added, before dropping the mic and exiting stage left at a special event hosted by MTV.
As for pricing for the new Cadillac Escalade Ballerifiq, the automaker declined to provide exact details, stating instead “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”
