This isn’t just a fancy car, this is a serious mobile office for a serious celebrity.
The busy work-life of Actor/Producer Mark Wahlberg is spent between long days on set, trekking back and forth to the trailer to pine over rough cuts and fending off fans along the way (we can only imagine). For an A-list celebrity with a hefty commuting schedule, a solution was limited only by the size of his car and imagination of the West Coast Customs team. Wahlberg sought out the world famous automotive shop to build a fully functional mobile office that would enable him to be more productive while on set, with a few “bells and whistles” thrown in. The team stripped the car apart and looked for top-of-the-line technology and electronics to transform Wahlberg’s Cadillac Escalade into an executive office-on-wheels. The entire project was showcased on an episode of TV’s Inside West Coast Customs and resulted in a luxurious, fully connected work space, with a little help from Go Power!
The Bells and Whistles
The vehicle became one of the most connected in the world, with satellite mounted to the roof and WIFI enabled. A custom-built, electronically-controlled partition was installed to separate the driver cab and to house the 33″ Samsung SMART TV. High-end speakers, a DVD player, Xbox, fridge cooler and more were included to bring the comforts of Mark’s home base office into his mobile solution.
These premium electronics would be a huge draw on the vehicle’s battery. The West Coast Customs team needed a high quality, reliable power inverter to provide an independent source of AC power to run the office and entertainment center. The crew selected the Go Power! 1000 watt pure sine wave inverter, with remote accessibility, to provide that power. The compact inverter was neatly installed under the passenger seat of the Escalade, with the remote mounted into the side console.
