If what it said online is true this will greatly help GM's Image.
The concept is powered by a 7.5-litre, V12 powerplant, which is visible through a clear window in the decklid. This Powertrain is called the Northstar XV12. The all-aluminum, dual overhead cam (DOHC) four-valve V12 engine generates 750 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque, and somehow it is also meeting packaging requirements and fuel economy standards of a V8 ( which for GM doesn't say too much considering their V8s)


The Front view of this car is impressive, very aggressive, and very stealthy in modern Cadillac tradition.

From the side its obvious this is a mid engine car. I like how cadillac has kept it simple with this design.  In todays modern design age, less is more.  Although the lines toward the front of the door look a bit off.  Good choice in Rims.  The rear intakes should be pushed back a little.


The rear is a little too simple.  I know they want to keep it clean, but the tail lights don't really flow right.  From this angle it kind of takes on the traits of a corvette.  If GM wants to impress the international Car Community they need to do a little more work on this.
