    If you put a fixed roof on the XLR, it would look much better than this.

    You're certainly welcome to your opinion but I definately disagree. This thing (whatever it is) actually has some graceful lines to it. More like the Sixteen than the XLR. Styling is always very subjective and for me, this looks very nice. Almost Aston Martin Vanquish meets Cadillac Sixteen?

    It looks like a goofy looking Sixteen. My vote:

    Awesome. The trunk area should be a bit more flat, otherwise that is golden.

    It's featured in the news section of Motor Trend. According to Motor Trend Lutz really wants this car. It's supposedly going to have that V12 from the Cien or a higher out S/C 4.4 V8. The picture is supposedly a full size clay mock up. Whatever it is they better give it a real name, not ULC or something. Eldorado and Coupe Deville have nice rings to them.

    Thumbs down Re: Ultra Luxury Coupe ULC

    Although I love the idea of an ultralux, fixed-roof coupe, I sure as hell hope this isn't the final product. It has an extremely preliminary look to it, almost like a first or second draft, and the details don't appear to have been completely worked out.

    Admittedly the images are unclear, but even so the front appears curiously chunky and unfinished, the sides look nondescript, and the back end just sort of fades away. Back to the drawing board!!

    I think it's gorgeous, even if it is just a start. It's not going to be perfect yet, I mean, it's clay! However, I think it has some great potential, especially if they throw V12 in there! Hoo-ah!

    Re: Ultra Luxury Coupe ULC

    I still don't see anything new or wonderful about this design, except for a hint of fins on the tailights. But I'd like to have seen that on the new DTS instead.

    Other than that, this car is just way too generic and lacks sex appeal. It's not sexy enough for a V12 coupe that will have to compete with the much sexier Bentley GT.

    They should have used at least used the '49 fastback as inspiration to see how a Cadillac coupe can have sex apppeal. Instead they merged the Sixteen and XLR together and added some fins.

    I think an XLR with a C6 fixed roof, would be cheaper to make and look just as good.

    But then I didn't think the XLR was that great of a looking car when it was a debuted as a concept either. And boy was I...well they aren't selling very well, are they?

    And Cadillac doesn't even need a ULC. It needs a Sedan Deville to compete with the S-class and 7-series, but priced lower to keep the imports off it's back.

    They should take on this market segment, before they attempt to reach into the higher stratosphere of Bentley and Aston Martin territory.

    Hell, they should have given us a proper DTS replacement today before dreaming about their lofty future.

    I used to think Lutz was the man. Now I just think he's the old man.

    Re: Ultra Luxury Coupe ULC

    If I can't have the Sixteen, this is looking to be a very nice compromise.

    The back end could use a little refining (I think the lines are headed in the right direction, but the car just looks a little saggy in the back), but I like the exhaust tips, if they're going to be integrated into the rear like that. Rather, they *should* be integrated into the rear bumper, like so:
