Vice Ganda couldn’t contain his excitement at the sight of his brand new luxury car—a sleek black 2021 Cadillac Escalade!
After months of waiting, the Unkabogable star finally had his new vehicle delivered, as seen in his YouTube vlog posted on January 27.
According to Vice, it was time for him to get a new car because the ones he’s been using have already been malfunctioning in different ways. The brakes of one car failed while another car had air conditioning problems.
"Um-order kami ng bagong car kasi parang minamalas ako lately sa sasakyan. Noong isang araw nagda-drive ako, nawalan ng brake 'yung dina-drive kong sasakyan. Sa bagay kasi, ilang taon na rin naman iyon. Tapos siguro dahil hindi nagagamit because of the pandemic, nung bigla kong ginamit, nawalan siya ng preno,” he explained.
He further detailed, “Tapos 'yung ginagamit ko naman everyday kapag pumapasok sa 'Showtime', 'yung malaking sasakyan, nagloloko 'yung aircon lately. Ang cheap-cheap nun, habang nagme-makeup, naglalapot ako kasi walang aircon. 'Yung pupunta ako ng ABS, 'yung makeup ko, lapot na lapot ako kasi walang aircon. Kailangan sinusuntok 'yung aircon para lumakas o bumukas ulit.”
“Tapos 'yung isang sasakyan ko pang malaki, 'yung pang-shooting naman, nangarag din. So parang minamalas-malas ako sa sasakyan, so sabi ko baka it’s time na bumili na ng bago para ma-dispose ‘yung ibang lumang sasakyan since ngarag naman na siya,” Vice added.
Vice originally planned on receiving his new car last August, but since the available version was white, he opted to wait until a black unit was in stock.
The Cadillac Escalade is priced within the whopping range of USD 76,295 (PHP 3,916,031.61) and USD 103,915 (PHP 5,333,697.16) according to the manufacturer’s website.
Vice disclosed that he used his earnings from the singing game show “Everybody, Sing!” to purchase the car which he consequently named “E.S.” as a nod to the show.
“Kailangan na namin bumili ng bagong sasakyan for safe travels,” he said of the main reason behind the purchase.
