So you've finally made it into the big time as an actor, musician, athlete, corrupt politician, or secret agent man. You can finally afford another pair of Bruno Mali shoes and a 50-inch plasma HDTV with Dolby 6.1 Surround Sound. It's now time for you to figure out what vehicle you can buy that will shout to all your peeps, "I am somebody!" How about that Ferrari you always wanted? Well, let's face it, how practical is a car that can only fit one date at a time? You could go down to your local Cadillac dealer and get an Escalade, but that's so yesterday, besides every one of your neighbors has one of those things parked next to their Hummer H2. You need something that is a little more prestigious, but being as hip as you are, you certainly don't want to appear snooty, and a Range Rover would definitely be overkill. So, what do you get?
Knowing full well what A-list celebs and Fortune 500 CEOs require, Sean Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy Combs has joined forces with Boyd Coddington, Jr. and Coddington Enterprises of Santa Ana, California, to create the limited-edition Sean John Lincoln Navigator, tying in well with his Sean John line of clothing and accessories. Through the help of some of the most well-known suppliers in the industry, this Navigator has come to life with only the highest-quality components. Boyd Coddington, Jr. led the way with his design expertise, with Stitchcraft of Huntington Beach, California, handling the interior details, Alpine Car Audio providing the audio might, and Motorhead Jewelry of Louisville, Kentucky, fabricating all of the new emblems.
Starting off with a stock Navigator, the truck was painted in an ominous monochromatic black paint scheme. All of the chrome pieces, from window trim to tow hooks, were redone in subtle, yet cool, black chrome. The factory chrome grille was also given the blackout treatment and topped off with a custom Sean John/Lincoln emblem in sterling silver. Out back, the third brake light housing now shares its home with a reverse camera, and the smoked taillights incorporate the Sean John logo. In fact, Sean John logos are used liberally throughout the vehicle, lest you forget your place at the top of the world. The Sean John Navigator is a great status symbol, and if you are in one, you must be somebody. But with the limo tint on the windows, you will keep the paparazzi guessing at just which somebody you really are. Rounding it all out is a beautifully crafted set of Coddington Enterprises 22x9-inch BC Forged wheels wrapped in P295/45R22 BFGoodrich meats, providing all the style and class the stock rims lacked, and punctuating the exterior.
In the cabin, occupants are coddled in only the finest interior materials. Stitchcraft of Huntington Beach, California, used suede and smooth leather with the Sean John logo recessed in the hides for the seating surfaces. Plastics on the console and in other interior areas were painted to match the silver accents that came from the factory. And no interior would be complete without a world-class sound system, courtesy of Alpine. The Sean John Nav features the ultimate in car audio, with six monitors, two DVD players, and a PlayStation 2 for your entourage to enjoy. Lastly, as the cherry on top of all this opulence, a $6,000 Jacob & Co. timepiece with inlaid diamonds replaces the factory clock.
If you think your bank account has what it takes to own one of the 100 Sean John Navigators being produced, then give Coddington Enterprises a call and ante up the $85,000 to make it a reality. Just remember, you can't buy your way into being A-list cool, but with a ride like this, you can get pretty close.
