While developing the show car, the design and engineering team closely studied the artisanship and customizations that the early Cadillac sedans offered. For instance, the teams looked at the 1957 Eldorado Brougham which was hand-built and the bespoke V-16 powered coaches. “Those vehicles represented the pinnacle of luxury in their respective eras, and helped make Cadillac the standard of the world," said Tony Roma, chief engineer. “The CELESTIQ show car — also a sedan, because the configuration offers the very best luxury experience — builds on that pedigree and captures the spirit of arrival they expressed."
