A digital rendering artist has used his talents to transform the luxurious Cadillac Series 62 coupe into a Baja-ready off-roader with lifted suspension, four-wheel drive and a light bar.
The Cadillac Series 62 was conceived as an opulent personal luxury car for ferrying businessmen and other wealthy individuals around American cities in comfort and style. This digital rendering has more in common with a trophy truck than a stock Cadillac Series 62, though, trading the plush air suspension for a full long-travel setup complete with portal axles. Tough-looking beadlock wheels are also present, holding huge Nitto Mud Grappler Extreme Terrain off-road tires and hiding a set of race-ready ventilated disc brakes.
The designer also created additional ground clearance by removing the stock Cadillac Series 62 chrome bumper and sticking a custom underbody skid plate with Fox Racing suspension branding in its place. A blindingly bright LED light bar is also affixed to the top of the luxury coupe’s windshield, allowing the driver to illuminate the trail ahead during pitch black night stages in off-road races.

Most vintage Cadillac owners are keen to preserve the car’s original character, so it’s doubtful we’ll ever see a Baja-ready Series 62 like this in the flesh. That’s what’s so great about digital rendering programs, though. Modeling software like Blendr allows imaginative artists to create whatever kind of vehicle they can come up with, and apart from the price of buying the program and their free time, it costs them virtually nothing to do so.
