The Elmiraj Concept by Cadillac is the pinnacle of brand’s model range. This grand coupe carries the same Cadillac DNA as seen on other models but takes a different approach towards the design which despite being familiar looks refreshingly new.
This two door grand coupe is actually a modern version of the classic concept. And it can also be understood as a car that continues from where the Cadillac Ciel Concept left off. Proportion wise the car is 205 inches (5207mm) in length and can accommodate four people at once.
In Cadillac’s words the Elmiraj is not just an exaggeration of the company’s design language and in fact is a step forward. The exterior of the car is as beautiful as it can get. There is a long dash-to-axle front profile with a long wheelbase and clean body side with hardly any creases. Other design highlights include two function hood vents, 22-x-9-in. aluminum wheels, large ceramic brakes with monoblock calipers and much more.
The interior is, well, extremely luxurious. In fact luxury oozes out of every bit of the cabin. The upper half of the central instrument panel is actually a single unit which extends across the full width of the car, while the lower half is all about performance and these two together form an entirely driver oriented cabin.
Some of the design highlights include backlit titanium trim curves from the cowl to the doors, camel leather, Brazilian Rosewood, transparent analog tachometer and speedometer, a wide screen high resolution display for projecting driver information, a 10-inch touchscreen for navigation and connectivity, high-performance bucket seats, and more.
Powering the Elmiraj Concept coupe is a a 4.5-liter twin turbocharged V8 that can develop an estimated 500 hp. This very unit is derived from the he new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 powering the 2014 CTS Vsport which puts out 420 hp.
