According to Cadillac chief designer Ciel Concept represents the new design trend for future Caddies. It blends retro themes with current design.
This concept also strengthens new full-sized four-door convertible class. Ciel has suicide doors and no B-pillars between them. Concept features 3.6 liter twin turbocharged DOHC V6 engine that produces 425 HP – enough to spin 22-inch rims through hybrid low-speed all-electric transmission.
Cadillac says Ciel was inspired by Californian coast. Ciel is French for “Sky”. “There is authentic craftsmanship in the way the exterior and interior elements meld, much like a vintage wooden boat,” said Gael Buzyn, interior design manager.
