February 29, 2008 It's not exactly an example of emerging technology, but our interest in collector cars combined with a slight obsession with the Soprano's has prompted us to bring you this piece of news. A total of eight Cars and SUVs from the popular TV series are set to go under the hammer in March including Tony Soprano’s 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV.
The sale at No Reserve will take place during the 6th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event on March 26-30, 2008, in West Palm Beach, Florida, with net proceeds to go to the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
The signature piece of this modern mobster collection is the white 2003 Cadillac Escalade driven by Tony Soprano during the final three seasons of the series. The fully loaded Escalade has only 11,000 miles on the odometer and features clear, untinted windshields for exterior camera shots of the show’s leading character.
The Escalade will be flanked by the champagne 2003 Cadillac CTS used by Paulie Walnuts to destroy Christopher Moltisanti’s new front yard during Season 6, plus the red 1997 Mercury Villager minivan driven by Tony and Paulie, a black Cadillac Deville driven by crew member Vito Spatafore and a pair of blue Lincoln Town Cars used by rival gangster Phil Leotardo.
