Chip Foose and his design team are undertaking one hell of a design project. We revealed the first details about Foose’s 1935-inspired Cadillac Madam X show car, but we now know when we’ll see the gorgeous project.
Foose and company will debut Madam X (not to be confused with Ringbrothers’ Madam V show car) at the 2016 SEMA show on November 1, 2016, according to CarScoops. The vehicle was originally sketched and commissioned in 1935 as a one-off vehicle for a customer, but it failed to be produced.
Foose has taken a 1939 Cadillac Four Door 60 Special to mimic the design originally sketched decades ago, meaning it has been rebodied as a coupe with shorter lower dimensions. While Madam X will remain true to its original intentions, Foose Design will add its own signature touches, too.
Powering the Cadillac Madam X will be anything but old technology, though. In traditional SEMA fashion, a bonkers powertrain is underneath the skin: a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Not surprisingly, Foose is itching to reveal the project.
“I can’t wait to finally pull the wraps off the Madam X Cadillac. With its mix of old-school class and cutting-edge technology, the Madam X is becoming one of my all-time favorite builds.”
