    Post Cadillac News: Cadillac Elmiraj sedan RWD flagship finally caught testing

    Filed under: Spy Photos, Sedan, Cadillac, Luxury


    While we still have no insight as to it being named Elmiraj, STS or some other permutation of the -TS nomenclature, new spy shots give us proof positive that Cadillac is indeed hard at work on a rear-wheel-drive flagship model. Spied for the very first time in some north country testing, these shots provide a first look at the upcoming range-topper from Cadillac.

    Impressively long and large bodywork ride atop new General Motors' corporate Omega rear-drive architecture here. Heavy cladding over camouflage may discourage finding any details, but the overall, sharp-edged and blocky design is clearly reminiscent of what we've seen on the new CTS and the recently debuted ATS coupe. A strong, wheels-at-each-corner stance helps emphasize the length of this stretched Caddy, and everything about the proportions seem spot-on for a new fullsize flagship for the brand.

    It's quite possible that Cadillac will ultimately festoon this large sedan with detailing reminiscent of the original Elmiraj coupe, though thus far we've only seen prototypes wearing four-doors.

    Cadillac has been dropping turbocharged engines all over its range, like the 410-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 found in the XTS and CTS. We have no clue as to what mill might currently live under that broad hood, but anything from that potent V6 to any number of the company's updated V8 range would be appropriate for taking on the likes of the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

    Does this first glimpse of the Elmiraj sedan/Cadillac flagship get your motor running? Tell us what you think, in Comments.Cadillac Elmiraj sedan RWD flagship finally caught testing originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 22 Jan 2014 12:40:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

    Looks good to me, even with that camouflage. I think if a V8 would be standard (probably the 6.2L LT1), then that would be nice. Hopefully the interior will be just as good or better than the LS460's interior. I hope they also add some nice fancy features like self-closing doors, etc, which are features also found on the LS460.

    That is big!
    I don't see any clue from the Elmiraj, but I am still excited about Omega.

    My hope is that the powers that be at Cadillac will go all out and do this thing up right. World Class interior, Brembo brakes, respectable handling with a direct injection high performance V8 that gets respectable fuel mileage pumping out no less than 450 to 500 hp. It would be great to see Cadillac put Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Lexus on notice.

    Great news, can't wait to see it. I hope they smooth the trunk out and have the plate in the rear bumper, there is a section in the camo there. Oh and 22" wheels would be nice.

    A person at work just gave me a magazine "Machine Design" March 6, 2014. It has a photo and small article on a Elmiraj two door grand coupe. 500hp. twin turbo V8. 4,000lb. car and 205inch wheelbase. Dark blue color and similar rims to the above pic.
    Neat....
