Cadillac Sixteen
Geneva 2003

Cadillac Sixteen

The European Premiere for a supercar.
The Cadillac Sixteen, built in the tradition of the 1930 Cadillac V16.
16-cylinders, 13'600cm3 (!), 1000hp
Based on an aluminium space frame.
Danger for Maybach, or Rolls-Royce?
I don't think so.
It's only a concept-car.
And Cadillac equipped the engine with "Displacement On Demand", it's interesting, it's high-tech,
BUT it's not a symbol of luxury, when your 16-cylinder-engine only uses 4 cylinders, when you are driving slowly,
or waiting in front of a traffic light. (O.K., 4-cylinders of this engine show 3400cm3...)

Cadillac 16

The styling shows several typical Cadillac details, like the lights, or the entire rear design, that's Cadillac.
