      If Cadillac came out with cars like this Ciel..they would destroy the other car makers...Why are American manufacturers always come up with boring and disgusting boxy cheap looking styles...And they wonder why Americans buy Japanese, Korean, And German cars....There is your answer STUPID!!!

      This Cadillac is bad ass with the suicide doors and sharp style....however when I think Cadillac I think funeral cars....Cadillac needs to make a serious change or it will crash down like a dead bird!  Lincoln is doing it soon and so other non- manufacturers. Its time to expose all those so called prototypes, and bring them out into production.  Break the rules make cars people want to see on the road. not clunky, ugly, boxy. boring, and cheap looking cars!  Mark my words...if American manufactures come up with sleek prototype looking cars it will change the market people buying more American cars...I am not impressed with the new Chevy Volt...It looks so dam cheap like a remade cavalier...the old version looked so much nicer and bigger car.

      The Volt should not look like a cavalier...make it like a prototype..

    The entourage from Entourage is making a big comeback, but their signature Lincoln parade car is being replaced by a Cadillac concept that never made production.

    Damn it, Facebook people, stop being so gullible. When you see something on social media that requires you to share or like a status or page in exchange for a chance at winning something, it's almost always a hoax. This goes for iPads, or Bill Gates giving away cash or, yes, an Eminem fan page giving away a Cadillac Ciel. Now, normally we'd simply ignore this utter hogwash, but it's getting some traction on Facebook and, annoyingly, is beginning to clog our newsfeed.

    So much for that party. Cadillac has announced that it is walking away from plans to build a high-dollar, rear-wheel-drive ultraluxury sedan. The low-volume model would have been based on the lusty Ciel Concept, and the production iteration would have carried a price tag well over $100,000. Executives with the automaker reportedly claim the model wouldn't have bolstered the brand enough to be worth the investment.

    Following the rollout of the 2013 ATS and XTS, Cadillac is not content to rest on its crest-and-laurels. According to a report by TheDetroitBureau.com, the two models are merely the first volley in a larger onslaught of new models.

    In the 1930s, if you had the means, you could have custom coachbuilder Fleetwood fabricate a one-of-a-kind Cadillac just the way you like it. Well-heeled customers would peruse a build book to pick and choose the accoutrements they most liked. About 15 months later, their custom-bodied Cadillac would be delivered for their enjoyment.

    Car and Driver is back with more info on the potential future of Cadillac, having discovered that our finest domestic luxury brand has filed a trademark application for the name "LTS." The reasoned speculation: that since Cadillac tends to use the names it files to protect, LTS could be applied to one of the two rear-drive sedans expected to arrive soon – either the eventual successor to the just-introduced XTS or an Omega-platformed top-tier flagship. Another possibility is the name XLS.

    General Motors wowed the crowds in Monterey this year with the Cadillac Ciel Concept. In addition to being a larger-than life convertible, the vehicle featured a level of attention to detail that hasn't been seen from the Wreath and Crest in over a century. That includes the beautiful olive wood interior. The good people at Cool Hunting recently sat down with GM Design to discover exactly what went into crafting the intricate pieces. Their story is more interesting than we thought the assembly o

    The Cadillac Ciel concept is a convertible showstopper that wowed crowds at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Not surprisingly, Jay Leno managed to secure some talking time with General Motors VP of Global Design Ed Wellburn, and the two chatted about the ultimate Art and Science-mobile while Leno got a look at some of its features.

    Cadillac has chosen the backdrop of this week's classic car festivities in Monterey, California to debut a new concept convertible called the Ciel, which means "sky" in French.
