Have you seen it? This car is fucking beautiful! Now I want one and I hope this concept becomes a reality.
Cadillac is blasting photos and videos of their Ciel concept all over the net, so I’m thinking they are judging feedback and expecting to move forward to production. So maybe 2014?
I’m kind of a Caddy guy with my current ride being a 2008 CTS. I love a lot of the older Caddys and can’t stand a lot of the 70s/80s big boats.
The car was developed based on the Pacific coastline. The lines of the Ciel certainly flow and I can see the idea of the winding Caali coast as the car flows from front to rear.
Check the interior. Hot hot hot!!!
Hand stitched leather, Itgalian Olive wood, and nickel plated trim.
I think Cadillac has another winner here. Since the new generation of the CTS was introduced, then the V version and now the CTS V-Wagon (what a hidden beast that thing is) Caddy is back on top of the American luxury heap and challenging the Germans.
I love my CTS but give me a Ciel today and I’ll be cruising the coast from Santa Barbara to Marin. Beautiful.
