When it came time to build something of his own, he picked up a 2014 Cadillac ELR because of its complexity, which allowed for more R&D throughout the build. Because it is an R&D platform, the car needed to be able to drive across the country, as well as remain serviceable.

Thanks to Mitchell’s expertise, the ELR is one of the most unique competition audio builds out there!
