Cadillac Ciel Concept for the classic minds


Cadillac to debut its new Ciel Concept with a classic car-like theme at the Monterey festival in California. The new concept convertible takes its name after a french word “Ciel”, which means “sky” in French.  The four-door convertible is a hint to Cadillac’s future luxury flagships.

The Cadillac Ciel Concept is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine with direct injection producing about 425-horsepower along with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack for its hybrid system. The Cadillac Ciel Concept is huge, with a wheelbase 12 inches longer than a CTS sedan and a length of 16.7 feet. Cadillac says the car’s shape is more natural and organic than its current design language. You think can of it as the remaking of the 1970 Cadillac Deville Convertible.

We don’t think that the Ciel Concept ever make it to production, but hopefully, some sort of its derivative comes to reality in the near future. But you have to be a swagger to able to drive it. In the meantime, enjoy the cruising of the Cadillac Ciel Concept down California’s coast below.
