Wow...Zeta....Auto-tranny....560hp....DI....AFM..................brai n hurts. *twitching*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.
