Re: 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Good but little bland, front reminds me Opel Monza Concept. Missing the good old Cadillac grille and logo.

I like the rear and front and hope to see elements of it in future models. But just another beautiful Cadillac concept that won't see production imo. Caddy had the stunning Elmiraj that went no where so I'm not holding my breath.

NOT a fan of the rear end or tail lights at all. Overall pretty meh specially after the Ciel and Elmiraj.

Re: @cadillac #escala


I haven't gotten a good/comprehensive look yet but
seems they just stripped off the A&S "costume" thereby
REMOVING the styling** and leaving a mostly barebones showcar(not quite realistic proportions...
...plus of course accessorized with SOMEone's leftover Audi bits
AND as Rmc said elsewhere)
"...look at the grille made up of many crests....I wonder where they got that idea..."
my main problem is that imho this would be OK on a single car bigger than the gen2 CTS
BUT wonder just how many large sedans Johan&Uwe think they need OR can sell? so
= aNother splurge of expensive engineering cuz the '''clothes they just bought''' just won't fit anymore


** generic but not unpleasant
not unpleasant but generic...
..."brief but tedious,
however tedious t'was brief"
(un?)related...
when's the next NYC Fashion Week?

Oh! Nice... A Cadillac with a Bangle butt.....


Edit: after to see the car for more than 5 minutes, the previuos comment is unfair. Is not a Cadillac with a "Bangle butt". Is an Audi A7 with a "Bangle butt". Very innovative...

Well, s**t. I'd kinda hoped that Caddy would stay stupid and stay with the horrid Etch-a-Sketch styling for another decade.

Re: 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

This concept is absolutely stunning. I can't believe I'm typing this but good job Cadillac.


Now its time for Lincoln to show off a concept equally stunning. Something along the lines of this, with the current Lincoln face of course:

$2.7 Million Bugatti Chiron Makes U.S. Debut at Monterey Car Week

August 20, 2016
by Stephen Elmer

The Bugatti Chiron made it U.S. debut Friday in California at Monterey Car Week, appearing at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering.

Changes to the U.S.-spec Chiron are nominal, with orange indicator markers added to meet U.S. safety regulations and the speedometer adjusted to support miles per hour.

Equipped with a quad-turbocharged 8.0 liter W16 that provides 1,480 hp, the Chiron accelerates to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds and is capable of reaching top speeds of up to 261 mph.

Bugatti has limited the production run of the Chiron to 500 units, 200 of which have been sold. The company indicated that roughly 30 percent of its customers are based in the U.S.

The Bugatti Chiron starts at $2.7 million. U.S. deliveries are expected to begin this fall...
