With the demise of Holden manufacturing, the end of the Holden Caprice comes, too. Currently, no solid news has surfaced over what will become of the luxurious, full-size sedan. While it does battle in the luxury segment in Oz, it serves as some U.S. police forces’ workhorse of choice.
Wheels snapped photos weeks ago of a 2016 Cadillac CT6 sitting in a residential Melbourne neighborhood, plated and all. No camouflage is present, either, and it looks to very much be a production CT6.
The question is, why was it there? Is Holden providing engineering backup for Cadillac abroad? Or is something else bigger being planned?
It certainly could be taken that a CT6 of sorts may replace the soon-to-expire Holden Caprice, but again, nothing of such has been remotely confirmed or brought up.
Currently, the Cadillac CT6 is the only vehicle riding on General Motor’s Omega platform. We know a platform like Omega was not engineered to support merely one car, so our friends down under may be in for a treat in the near future.
