As GM Authority was the first to cover back in May of 2022, the Cadillac Celestiq offers customers an extreme level of customization, with a wide variety of vehicle features, materials, and colors available for personalization. Now, Cadillac has announced the development of the Cadillac House at Vanderbilt, a new facility intended to guide customers through the in-depth customization process to create their very own one-of-one Cadillac Celestiq ultra-luxury sedan. The Cadillac House at Vanderbilt will welcome its first clients late this summer, with Cadillac beginning the process of selected client engagements in late spring.
The Cadillac House at Vanderbilt is located on the GM Global Technical Center campus in Warren, Michigan and will offer Cadillac Celestiq clients a custom commission experience complete with personal collaboration alongside Celestiq designers and a concierge.
“Every Celestiq is personally commissioned and working on-site with our Cadillac designers provides clients an elevated experience,” said executive director, Global Cadillac Design, Bryan Nesbitt. “It’s a unique opportunity to collaborate with our design team, enabling clients to directly translate their vision of their Celestiq into a one-of-one piece of moving sculpture.”
Among the features of the Cadillac House at Vanderbilt is a large-scale gold sculptural screen designed by Harry Bertoia. The screen is 36 feet long and 10 feet tall, and was created using individual plaques of enameled steel that were coated in molten metal.
Each example of the Cadillac Celestiq will be hand-produced at the Artisan Center on the Warren campus. Highlight features include a pillar-to-pillar 55-inch-diagonal display mounted on the dash, as well as the GM Ultra Cruise driver assist system.
Under the body, the Cadillac Celestiq rides on the GM BEV3 platform, with a 111 kWh GM Ultium battery pack sending power to a two-motor GM Ultium Drive system. Maximum output is rated at 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque.
The first Cadillac Celestiq units will be delivered to clients in late-spring of the 2024 calendar year.
