    Re: Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept

    Pretty much hate it. The font end looks like it should be the back and the brake ducts look like exhaust outlets. It doesn't help that I think most guys that drive convertibles also have mustaches and bags of candy with them at all times. Women can drive this, as long as they drive it in reverse so it looks normal going down the road.

    I will give it a pass on the doors. Suicide doors are wicked.

    Re: Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept

    This car is really hot to me, I bet it the under 21 crowd that does not like it. I am in product development and have no doubt that we are looking at a design language they are playing with for the Omega. Lots of late 60s Eldorado on the rear. The front will never see a production car as its not insurable. I love the side profile as well as the rear. That hood is long enough to stuff a 5th gen v8 in there as well and with the large tunnel going down the middle its for sure a rwd car.

    Real Caddy tail-lights! I hope they take lots of cues from this. We need a new flagship model that is bold like the Caddys of old. Awesome looking car.

    I know they will say "high-strength steel" "undertray bracing" etc etc. But I don't buy it. You can't have more than 2 seats if you want a convertible with decent handling. Unless you don't care. I suppose a boulevard cruiser can suffer cowl shake.
    In my opinion the convertible is only for "cool" factor. This design is going to go into the full-size flagship planned for the Omega platform. We'll probably see a similar theme influence on the rest of Cadillac's lineup as well.

    Re: Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept

    I agree, the convertible is just a cool factor, I suspect the real car will have a roof similar to the current CTS/Sixteen. GM is just testing the waters with the overall design of the front, rear and sides. I suspect the front end of any such car would look more like the Converj. However there was a time when GM made wonderful full size( and I mean much larger than the DTS) convertibles that were amazing machines. I fondly remember them as a kid riding around in the folded up part and staring up at the stars.

    BTW, the Ciel has a length that is just about the same size as the current DTS, S-class, 7 series. So its going to be reality in some form close to this.

    Re: Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept

    Interesting size notice...

    Ciel concept - overall: 203 in., wheelbase: 125 in.
    2011 DTS - overall: 196 in., wheelbase 116 in.

    wow - longer overall & all of it plus more in the wheelbase. Sounds like an adult may fit in back.

    I'm very intrigued by this. Will it be making the car show tours this winter?

    Re: Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept

    Okay, I'm in the "under 21" crowd and I'm in love with this car. Kids today... pfft.

    Furthermore, @ MacMuse, adults fit very comfortably in the back of a DTS in my experience. Last summer, five of us fit quite comfortably in a rental DTS.

    You can't get tech specs from kbb, edmunds, etc anymore. Their database is so shoddy, it's embarassing.

    I'm seeing a lot of '67 Eldo in this beast. Skip the suicide doors and the 4-door vert. Make a real coupe and sedan, and a 2 door, large vert if there's cash. Oh...and I will laugh if there's no V8 option...
