1930 Cadillac 452 Convertible Coupe with coachwork by Rollston.

I think the "452" refers to the 452 cubic inch V-16 engine.

from Automobile magazine...

"Earl created the Aerodynamic Coupe for the 1933 Chicago Century of Progress. With its 165-horsepower V-16 and slippery good looks, Earl's creation proved a tremendous hit with showgoers—so popular, in fact, that coachbuilder Fleetwood offered the car in limited production (twenty were built)."

The story of the most exotic Cadillac ever built.

http://www.car-nection.com/yann/Dbas_txt/16hrtm.htm

It is a 1937 Cadillac two-door convertible, body by Hartmann.

from http://www.blackhawkauto.org/collectf.html

The last year for Cadillac’s 452 cubic inch V-16 engine was 1937 and only fifty units were manufactured; Cadillac introduced a redesigned and less expensive V-16 in 1938.

Cadillac released only two V-16 chassis to independent coachbuilders in 1937. One was sold to Philippe Barraud, a wealthy young playboy living along the fashionable Swiss Riviera, which stretched between Lausanne and Montreux on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Barraud commissioned Willy Hartmann, a body shop owner in Lausanne, “to create a look similar to a Figoni et Falaschi-designed car” on this huge chassis.

Basic stock Cadillac components were used on this streamlined hand-formed fantasy, which is one of the largest cabriolets ever built. Initially there was some doubt whether it could be registered in Switzerland as a private car due to the 22-foot overall length.

Barraud drove his car to all the fashionable haunts where it caused a sensation — as it continues to do today.

The market for those really expensive luxo cars wasn't all that great last year.


Perhaps a Cadillac with the Sixteen's styling, a Sigma chassis, and a Northstar V-12 would be the ticket.

Gus Bell drove a Cadillac V16 Roadster prototype at the GM proving ground in Milford, Michigan on July 15, 1930. He was going 112 mph before he crashed and died.

A website about him.
