There’s no question that the Cadillac Elmiraj concept is a looker. And while it might not be a harbinger of what Cadillac has in store for its upcoming full-size flagship coupe or sedan, it definitely serves as a teaser of what’s to come. But why is it called Elmiraj?
The name pays homage to the El Miraj lakebed in San Bernardino County, California, which has been used by the Southern California Timing Association for top-speed runs for the last 50 years. The same group also organizes speed runs at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Something tells us that when a production version of the Elmiraj comes to market, likely wearing the LTS name, its solid architecture (known internally as Omega) and powerful engine range will empower it to reach high speeds on the likes of the lakebed, all while exuding confidence and comfort for the driver and the vehicle’s passengers.
