    Love it, especially the grill can't stand the design of the cheap plastic grills Cadillac has even though I know it is because of pedestrian crash standards.


    When I was for getting rid of the wreath It didnt cross my mind that the shield would end up looking like a Transformers Autobot symbol hehe

    The more I look at it, the more I'm digging it. Now this is what I am looking from Cadillac, the same daring designs that created the CTS coupe. I personally think they watered down the designs with the ATS and even the new CTS.

    This I like.

    I agree, This is something they should have just shut up about with the concept crap and showed it at the auto show this January and put that baby out by the end of next year..
    I can't stand that about GM they keep showing cool stuff that they will never build Just shut up keep it secret and build the dam thing.




    The only thing I am not liking is the placement of the Cue it is to far over towards the passenger side.






    I like how they put the crest/shield on the side of the car as seen in both videos too..

    I'm not really feeling the new logo, but I don't hate it.

    Re: New Cadillac concept coupe The Elmiraj

    This is the BEST looking Cadillac in history, IMO, PERIOD! This may very well be a sneak peak at the next CTS coupe as well. I have gone back and forth between the current V Coupe (based on my love for the car and the "talk" that Cadillac will not make another CTS Coupe variant) and the new 2014 CTS Sedan - but I think this will be the next Coupe - should be at least 90% of concept and 2 years into build quality issues/ delivery should list for no less than $68K at base - the world is ready for this - just spent time in Monte Carlo amidst Ferraris Bentleys, Bugattis and Astons, this car will blow them away - yes the CIEL is/ was gorgeous - but this video is very good at indicating it was a time-space launch for something next - not an arrival point for a new car - that "next car" is this coupe.

    Congrats Cadillac - GREAT JOB!!!

    ----------

    Do not be fooled by the "El Mirage" moniker - this is no mirage - this will be the basis for the next coupe - just watched these videos and the designers could not hold back Cadillac/GM design plans in their speak. which is great!!!! BRING THIS BABY ON!!!!

    It makes me very, very proud to own this company's product (have for 2 gens now) - they are on a mission to reclaim "Standard of the World" status - please just bring it on and deliver once and for all.

    It looks good static and continues to look good in motion (and the new logo does work, for me). This is/would take Cadillac to the next level; now that's a 'Flagship'.

    I agree 100% about the design of the new ATS and CTS. The dealership where I bought my car is right at my corner so I go by it all of the time. They sell Chevrolet and Cadillac and sometimes they park a Malibu and a ATS out front right next to each other and I don't think they look much different. I really like the Elmiraj. It definitely stands out which is what a Cadillac is supposed to do. Right now the new CTS is out of my price range so when I get a new car (probably next year or the year after) if the ATS coupe doesn't do it for me I might be out of here. I thought I read that the sedan is getting an option that includes a black grill and black wheels. I might consider that on a white car. I want to buy a Cadillac, I want to support American workers but it's pretty hard to plunk your money down on a car you're luke warm about. I always really liked the Audi A5 and with BMW coming out with the 4 series and even Mercedes with the CLA theres lots of choices.

    It`s quite attractive in concept form.

    Really like the "Eames Lounge chair" seat backs.

    Well the CTS coupe is just about identical to the concept that was introduced in 2009 (I think) so there is hope.

    I remember standing in front of the turntable at the NAIAS In Detroit just staring at the car lustfully thinking how cool and futuristic the car looked. Looking at the pictures of the Emiraj, I am almost feeling the same way..

    The last three cars I have owned were cars whee I said "I gotta have it" when I first laid my eyes on it. That's how I felt when I saw the CTS coupe, but I wanted to see what Acura would do to replace the RL. When they introduced the RLX concept it looked boring to me and it made jumping over back to the domestics easier.

    I bought my Coupe and plan to own it for several more years, if Cadillac builds this car similar to the concept (like they did with the CTS coupe), this could very well be my next car

    What is the matter with: 'the mirage'. And as the Elmiraj is just a concept perhaps the production model may be the Eldorado.
