Cadillac to Introduce New Concept Car Alongside Historical Classics at Pebble Beach Concours

By Jacob Brown | August 13, 2013
Sometimes to be able to move forward, you have to look towards your past for inspiration. No automaker knows this better than Cadillac, which has drawn heavily from its heritage over the past few years but delivered some striking concepts like the Sixteen and Ciel. Cadillac will debut a new concept vehicle at this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, which we'll be on-hand to witness. The concept will be shown alongside three historically significant personal luxury coupes: 1967 Eldorado, a 1965 Coupe Deville, and a 1937 Series 90 V16. That gives us a pretty good hint that this upcoming concept will probably be a coupe or four-door coupe, diverging from the resoundingly, amazingly awesome (we're allowed to editorialize with our fawning) Ciel four-door convertible that debuted at the 2011 concours and was thought to be inspiration for the next-generation flagship sedan. Of course, now we know that the full-size flagship is still a few years off, the oversized Bentley fighter has been put on halt, Cadillac will show this upcoming concept with a refreshed badge that will ditch the wreath from its Wreath and Crest, and it will still signal the direction the brand plans on taking. But, since Cadillac will be looking back and looking forward, you might think the American luxury brand is forgetting about today. Not so, as it will have ATS and CTS-V cars for showgoers to check out. We hope the 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport is there, too, as this is one of the most prestigious events in the world.
And if there's one thing that everyone should know about luxury brands, you only have one time to make a good first impression. We'll show you live coverage of the events as they unfold later this week. Source: Cadillac
