AND!!!
The Cadillac 16! Only, it'll be a V12, instead of a V16...

http://www.drive.com.au/Editorial/ArticleDetail.aspx?ArticleID=37286

Given that GM is poised to reintroduce the Cadillac brand to Australia – and that design work on the V12 is being handled by Holden – the car could be on Australian roads as early as 2010.

Bob Lutz, GM’s product boss, says development work is ‘‘well under way’’ in Australia.

The opulent V12 flagship draws its inspiration from the Cadillac Sixteen concept car, shown at the Detroit motor show in 2003. Perhaps GM has got the message on fuel consumption – the original concept was a 13.6-litre V16 developing 750kWof power.

The plush new sedan, described by GM as an all-American rival for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Lexus LS 460, will provide buyers with a home grown alternative to some of the world’s most distinguished luxury cars at a price that is likely to undercut the competition dramatically.
Wow...Zeta....Auto-tranny....560hp....DI....AFM..................brai n hurts. *twitching*

THIS is gonna be freaking AWESOME!!!
It's kind of funny. A few years back, when GM built this Caddy 16 concept, it was designed to be purely that, a concept. Lutz even blogged that it would be impractical, and foolish to push out a V16 with 1000 hp this day in age, and expect it to sell. even though it still magaged something like 24pmg...think abou that: 24mpg - in a 1000hp V16

Anyways, I'm glad GM is doing this. Sure, it may not be totally practical right now, but I think it will sell quite well among the Euro-folks with money.

Plus - Zeta. That's just one more vehicle to spread costs out over. And if they're putting the soon-to-be flagship Cadillac on this chassis, what does that tell you about the quality of this platform?
