"Spirit of the classics"
Inside the Cadillac Ciel Concept, the cabin features Italian Olive wood, machined aluminum and all  the leather you’d expect in a car of this class. A “floating” center  console runs from the instrument panel to the rear of the interior.  There are hidden connectivity ports for each passenger, though some of  the best bits of concept car frivolity are saved for rear occupants.

2014 Cadillac ELR, the electric Caddy
“It’s a logical extension of our plan to reinvent the automobile.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is a true enthusiast’s car that delivers great performance thanks to its supercharged 556 bhp 6.2-liter V8 engine with 551 lb-ft of torque. Undoubtedly, the most impressive aspect of the CTS-V Wagon is the availability of a six-speed manual transmission. Especially since other companies, including such enthusiast makes as BMW and Porsche, are eschewing manual transmissions in many of their high performance cars.

Detroit had chances to continue the good stuff. We still wonder why Ford didn’t build a proper Taurus SHO wagon. Then the vehicular herpes known as the SUV infected the nation and wagons were shunned.
