Cowboys' latest off-season acquisition: New multi-million dollar luxury bus

The Cowboys put more than 2 million miles on their first luxury bus. The Cowboys' new luxury bus lists for $1.5 to $2.5 million depending on its finish-out.

Dallas Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones promised to make things "very uncomfortable" at the team's Valley Ranch headquarters during the off-season. But the team's latest high-profile, off-season acquisition -- a luxury bus -- will be fully equipped for comfort according to David Moore of The Dallas Morning News.

The Morning News offers a photo tour of the Prevost Marathan Coach -- nicknamed "The Elegant Lady" -- scheduled to arrive Tuesday along with team personnel attending the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Jones and his staff have long used a luxury bus to transport them around NFL cities and events such as training camps, team marketing events and Super Bowls -- after they arrive by plane.

Club officials are tight-lipped on the cost. But this model lists for $1.5 million to $2.5 million, depending on how it’s finished out.

Anyone who has seen the subtle and often expensive touches the Jones family incorporated into Cowboys Stadium can assume this project also pushes the upper end of the scale.

The luxury bus made its debut this month in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. Former Cowboys star Larry Allen sat on one of its three plush couches, watching one of the vehicle’s nine TV screens, as he learned he will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Since the bus was parked, driver Emory Tyler was able to slide a portion of the cab out an extra foot to give Allen a little more leg room.

Tyler reportedly put more than 2 million miles on the club’s original bus, which remains in service.

Surprisingly, the driver said the bus created an unexpected response from fans of the Cowboys' NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles.

“I was in Philadelphia with the other bus once during the off-season and I was surprised," Tyler said. "It was so cool. The people there loved it.”
