Motor Trend is reporting that the Fleetwood Coupe deVille prototype, two 1953 LeMans Roadsters, 1953 El Dorado Special, 1956 Eldorado Brougham Town Car, 1959 Cyclone Concept, and 1961 El Dorado Chicago Auto Show car will be on display. The more recent vehicles will include the 2002 Cien Concept and the 13.6-liter 1000-hp Sixteen Concept.
One of the most significant concepts that has made a huge difference in the way we travel, is the Cyclone. This is the first vehicle that used sliding doors, decades before they became a staple of the minivan.
It’s because of these concepts that Cadillac has become the “standard of the world.” This motto was bestowed on the brand in 1909 by the Royal Automobile Club. It was there that three cars won the RAC’s Dewer Trophy.
