Video: Lexani 2012 Yukon XL More Comforting than Mashed Potatoes

Imagine you’ve got yourself a 2012 GMC Yukon XL. Now imagine you’ve got tons of money lying around that you can spend on it. Great, you’ve got a lavish, extravagant Yukon XL. So what’s next? Do you drive it around town, looking for some fly honeys? Or do you hide it away like a crown jewel? Perhaps you list it on the luxury market?

Lexani Motorcars, of Corona, California, decided upon the last of these options with its recent project, dubbed “Y4.” It’s now listed on Fusion Luxury Motors for nearly $200K, and it’s about as garish as you would expect, and then some.

So what can you expect from this gold mine of an SUV? Well, for starters, it’s a very fresh car, at only 8,860 miles with a Vortec 5.3L motor. And that’s all you get for wanting to know its guts, just by reading the product description.

But the interior is obviously what you’re playing online poker and buying boatloads of lottery tickets for, so let’s dive right in. Burl wood finish claims everything that isn’t carpet, glass, or metal.

A 1000-watt Alpine audio system, combined with a hideaway 40″ LCD TV and PS3 game console, will certainly keep the kids happy–this is a family vehicle, after all. The headliner and walls are lined with suede and made out of European-style leather, so bringing Fido on board could prove disastrous.

For that matter, eating or drinking should be verboten as well. Unless it’s champagne, for which you can easily slide out the custom-made cabinet and fix yourself a glass of bubbly. Such worthy moments would include clinching a new client, or when the car emerges from the Disneyland parking structure unscathed.

All the seats are powered to go six ways, and a couple will even fold upward to reveal the Lexani sigil, just in case you forgot. There’s a privacy partition for those times when you just can’t handle any more Adventure Time or SpongeBob.

And don’t let your clients or subordinates dawdle while you’re cruising the PCH with the wife and kids. With an optional upgrade, you can conduct your business using integrated mobile wi-fi, an onboard Mac Mini computer with a wireless keyboard, video conferencing cameras and microphones, and full-size iPad slots. Not even this GM vehicle is safe from the prevalent technological monster that is Apple.

Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can get you damn close. 24k gold accents, custom logo embroidery, built-in massagers, intercom system, blah blah blah, we get it, this SUV is mad pimpin’. It’s a fancy schmancy version of its Yukon namesake, but what do you think? Is it worth it you at $197,888? Or would it be better suited to eBay Motors, with a starting bid of $0.99? Let us know in the comments.
