I do not currently own a Caddy but am seriously considering one. My brother and I were arguing about a "special edition" Eldo that had a more powerful (more than 300hp) that was available. I did not think there is one. Was there?


btw I am warming up to the Eldorado ETC. Seeing that I do not really use the back seat to move people. Plus the two door is sportier looking.

Thanks in advance,

Ed

I beleive that Eldo 1953 is correct. When cady came out with 295/300 it was the more powerful (on paper) my brother is talking about. Thanks for the replies. I am still curious though. When did they introduce the 300hp motor?

I like this forum!

I expected a little more knowledge on this forum, 92 - 200hp 4.9, 93 - Northstar 300hp
92 - All have the 4.9L and 200HP
93 - Base model has the 4.9L with 200HP
93 - Sport coupe with the sport Performance package has 270HP with the 4.6L North*
93 - Touring Coupe has the 4.6L north* with 295HP
94 - Base model has the 4.6L north* with 270HP
94 - Touring Coupe has the 4.6L north* with 295HP
95 - Base model has the 4.6L North* with 275HP
95 - ETC has the 4.6L North* with 300HP
96 - Base model has the 4.6L North* with 275HP
96 - ETC has the 4.6L North* with 300HP

Hope this will help satisfy all those who are curious about the beging of the Eldo from 92 till the 300HP came

The extra 5hp came in 95 when the intake was changed on the Northstar.

As a sidenote, I have GM literature rating the Northstar at 290hp when it was first introduced.

I think where that "Special Edition" rumor started was on ebay last summer. Someone had a Seville STS with aftermarket aluminum rims, and a sticker on the Valve Cover indicating "Special Edition 320HP". I almost fell for it. As it turned out, it was a regular STS with aftermarket rims and supposedly an aftermarket computer chip which advertised 320 HP. The chip came with a sticker which someone stuck on the engine. After that here have been rummors of Special Editions.
This all started as a little confusion on the part of someone who was selling a car which he knew very little about.
