Re: 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

looks good but too soft for Caddy IMO. The Ciel was 100% times better

what's likeable about it is that it's NOT all that Cadillackish

After having a few days to take it in what I like is that they've softened some of the overly hard edges from the ATS/CTS, while the aspects of those cars that was softened too much from the 2nd generation CTS to the third are a little tauter on the Elscala! They took what Audi does so well in terms of understated design and spiced them up a bit in all the right places!

Basically Cadillac and Audi were on opposite ends of the design spectrum, Cadillac on the cartoonish end, Audi on the boring end, Elscala found the happy medium! Would love to see Lincoln evolve into something a little less soft in terms of design too!

I will say I was rather surprised by the look of this. In all honesty it has a C-pillar similar to the mental image I have of what the next MKZ could have, like a toned down A7.

Re: 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

The 2016 Pebble Beach Concept Lawn was nuts as always
Autoblog rounds up all of the ridiculous concept vehicles from the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
enGadget
gallery &or links at site
We'll walk through the gallery above in order:

• That's a new Ford GT. Not quite a concept, but it's not in production yet, so we'll let it slide.
• Then there's the one-of-a-kind Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo that was recently bought by a Saudi Prince along with a matching Chiron.
• Next up is the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster, which was unveiled last week and is already sold out.
• This orange automobile is BMW's 2002 Hommage with its latest livery, a Jägermeister-themed affair called Turbomeister.
• This silver Infiniti, the Q80 Inspiration Concept, is an oldie but a goodie. It first appeared in Paris in 2014.
• The extremely long automobile after that is the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, which was unveiled in Monterey this year.
• The 6 in the name is because it's 6 meters, or about 18 feet, long. Most of that's the hood.
• Next we have the one-of-99 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato coupe, which continues to be beautiful.
• After that is a Fisker Karma with a V8, the VLF Destino. Thank you, Bob Lutz.
• The black sedan you see after that is the Cadillac Escala Concept, which also made its debut in Monterey this year.
• Then we have a Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge. Not a concept, but exclusive enough to join the others.
• Next is the McLaren 570GT customized by MSO that arrived for Pebble 2016. It has special design touches plus an electrochromic panel to replace the normal glass roof.
• The light blue car is the Genesis New York concept. The name didn't change even though it was in Monterey.
• Then we have the large and in charge Lincoln Navigator concept (NYC gallery), taking up two regulation concept spots.

• The red car with suicide doors is Acura's Precision Concept, which we first saw at the Detroit show this year.
• Another non-concept, the Lexus LC 500h at least looks futuristic enough to be a show-specific car.
• And here's a 2017 Maserati Quattroporte, which is definitely not a concept.
• A Bentley Mulsanne EWB, because why not? It's not available in the US, so that almost qualifies for concept status.
• Then there's a reproduction Lister Knobbly, which we could stare at all day.
• And last but not least, the electric Corvette Z06 that holds the street-legal EV speed record.

is it too hard to paint the Navi concept? Use other color for PBC not the same one as NY!

I completely agree, Jose
BUT
without changing that pastel interior, esp the bleached Teak,
think thay could have only used
2- a black
1- PlatinumWhite
3- grey (Luxe or Magnetic or silver)
2- Rhapsody or MidnightSapphire
imho a Luxe/Magno or black...
