The 2003 Cadillac Escalade from "The Sopranos" now has a new owner.

The SUV sold for more than $119,000. The model has a resale value of only about $8,000.

The Escalade was in the final three seasons of "The Sopranos." It bears the signature of the show's late star, James Gandolfini, who played Tony Soprano. Before he died in 2013, he signed the car's interior in three different locations -- inside the driver's side sun visor, on a panel above the glovebox and on the back of the driver's seat headrest.

According to RR Auction, the Sopranos' Escalade went up for sale on Nov. 12. RR Auction only expected the SUV to sell for $30,000 to $50,000, according to CNN Money.

The 1999 Chevrolet Suburban that appeared in the show's first four seasons sold at auction for $110,000 in 2013, CNN Money reported.
