Allegedly. No one has ever produced proof that such a thing exists.

No, they did not. That RUMOR has been going around FOREVER but nobody has ever come up with a single example of such a radio and Motorola's own staff has categorically denied that such a product was ever developed.

It did not happen. I'll give you two yeti pelts and a unicorn horn for physical proof or verified documentation of the existence of such a thing.

I conceed. Called the retired moto engineer that I've dealt with in the past. He said "no it was LTR not EDACS."

There, happy now?

I don't need the horn, but front brake calipers and a turn signal switch would be super.

LTR, I believe. In fact I remember that there were some models of Motorola radios that formally supported LTR trunking. They were never common but they did exist.
