Haute 100 Update: Mark Wahlberg’s Escalade gets West Coast Customs Makeover


Hollywood staple and recent restaurateur Mark Wahlberg is always working – even in his car! The actor and producer recently appeared on the TV show Inside West Coast Customs to have the aftermarket auto specialists there transform his Cadillac Escalade into the ultimate mobile office.

The episode featuring Wahlberg and his Cadillac debuted on Velocity, a new “upscale male lifestyle network” by Discovery on Sunday, Oct. 30. Founded in 1993, West Coast Customs has been a major player in aftermarket customization and the show stars owner Ryan Friedlinghaus.

“Knowing that Mark is a powerhouse in the entertainment industry and always on the go, he came to us needing something that would keep him working; an office away from his home base which was comfortable and fully connected,” explained Friedlinghaus.

Wahlberg’s Escalade was first stripped of its interior and then outfitted to be a stellar mobile office. An automated partition was added to separate the driver and passenger areas, ergonomic recliner seats were installed in the rear, retracting tabletops added to create a workspace, and was then equipped with DirecTV and LCD monitors.

The exterior was sheathed in black for privacy and to uphold that classic movie star style, while and new wheels and suspension adjustments upped the tricked out vehicle’s wow factor.
