Tony Soprano’s iconic Cadillac Escalade is crossing the auction block.
Used on screen by James Gandolfini in the award-winning HBO series The Sopranos, the Cadillac Escalade will be auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction during the Music and Entertainment Icons Auction running from November 12 through November 19. Originally leased through Movie Time Cars Incorporated as one of two identical vehicles used during the last three seasons of the show, this specific vehicle was primarily used for exterior shots as well as shots where the car appeared in the scene during dialogue.

The Cadillac Escalade represented Soprano’s personal car and primary means of transportation and was frequently driven to meet with members of the New York families. It was also utilized in action sequences including the famous chase from season five in which Tony, angrily trying to collect a debt, drives Phil Leotardo off the road and into a parked car.
Gandolfini’s signature can be found throughout the Escalade’s interior, including on the back of the driver’s side headrest, inside the driver’s side sun visor and on the panel above the glovebox.
The famous actor unfortunately passed away of a heart attack at the age of 51 while on vacation in Italy on June 19, 2013.
