Calwing, Japanese tuner and parts distributer with a penchant for American cars, has in its portfolio a custom Cadillac Escalade which could well be the dopest of its kind in the whole world. The SUV features a body kit with custom details and a set of Forgiato wheels. And it looks awesome.
Granted, there are thing we don’t like about Calwing’s Cadillac Escalade. But on the whole, this seems to us the perfect way of modifying the looks of the Caddy and the correct way of reinforcing its image as a big and intimidating gansgta car, which is what the Escalade’s reputation is built upon.
So, first stuff we like. We absolutely love the Forgiato front grille with its chrome mesh grille and big arms extending on either side of the logo. That’s cool. We also like the extended front spoiler lip with its LED day timers. The flared wheel arches also appeal to the eye, and we definitely dig those massive 26 inch Forgiato AZIONI-M Monoleggera Sport rims. The finish is also great and complements the black exterior nicely.
As for the things we don’t like on this Cadillac Escalade, the rear apron with its quad exhaust ranks number one. What is this, a Mitsubishi Evo? The same goes for the Hauyra-style roof spoiler. Not very good. We also find the little grilles behind the flared arches a bit tacky, but that’s about it. There are so many good thing about this Caddy, you won’t really notice the bad stuff unless you actively look for them. It’d be interesting to see how this enormous car goes down in Japan where it seems small is sexy.
