AceShowbiz - "The Sopranos" is still making money like mafia. Tony Sopranos' 2003 Cadillac Escalade was sold for almost $120,000 at an auction held in Boston on Friday, November 20.
James Gandolfini drove the white SUV in the final three seasons of the HBO series. The late actor signed the Escalade in three different places; inside the driver's side sun visor, on a panel above the glovebox, and on the back of the driver's seat headrest. RR Auction executive vice president Robert Livingston said the car was an "decidedly unique, recognizable prop" from the show.
The auction winner, whose identity was not revealed, raked out $119,776.83 for the ride. Another car from the show, a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban, was sold for $110,000 in 2013. "Once we had realized we had broken the previous sales record price for a 'Sopranos' used vehicle, we were thrilled with the results of the auction," Livingston said in a statement.
A regular used Cadillac Escalade would fetch only $8,000. RR Auction initially expected to get between $30,000 and $50,000 from the sale.
