Last August, the Cadillac Elmiraj oohed and aahed the crowd at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and those attending the big car shows in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Enthusiasts were unanimous in feeling this was the car to put the cherry on top of Cadillac’s revamped reputation.
But General Motors has yet to issue a peep on the matter.
“It has been so well received wherever it has been shown,” said GM vice president of global design, Ed Welburn, last week at the WardsAuto Interiors Conference here. Automotive News reports that Welburn would not say if GM has decided to build a production version, but confirmed that the kudos from the media and enthusiasts alike “is a good sign” and good for the Cadillac brand.
The Elmiraj show car was powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 and would give Cadillac a flagship against entries from high-priced entries like Mercedes-Benz and even Bentley.
When GM Authority hears confirmation on anything regarding the Elmiraj, we’ll be the first to bring you the news.
