Cadillac Elmiraj Might Become Flagship Mercedes Fighter

Cadillac’s Elmiraj concept could become more than an American luxury car lover’s wet dream. 

The brand has a large rear-wheel drive sedan in the pipeline, expected to emerge in about two years. When that happens, it could be a production version of Caddy’s Pebble Beach show-stopper.

“Sometimes you go through these exercises to make a design statement,” Cadillac senior vice president Bob Ferguson told Automotive News. “This car is marketable. It’s practical enough to be put through the production process.”

If that happens, Cadillac will have a new weapon big enough to point at the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8. The Elmiraj measures three inches longer than the front-wheel drive XTS, which is currently the largest sedan in GM’s luxury portfolio.

“Our dealers really want a vehicle like this,” Ferguson said.

Who can blame them? With a 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 under the hood to offer 500 hp, the Elmirage promises potential for more than curb appeal.
