Pebble Beach is in full force and evidently, Cadillac is too. The Cadillac Ciel Concept (pronounced: C-L) ascends the mark’s design language with one hell of a bold statement. The four-seat convertible land yacht is appointed with appropriately nautical-themed elements: French doors, pillarless design, sweeping sheet metal and an interior bedecked in ambient lighting, analog and digital gauges, Italian olive wood, machined aluminum and hand-tipped leather. Outside you’ll find other niceties like complete LED lighting, 22 inch rims and carbon ceramic brakes. Cadillac hasn’t left this concept with just show and no go either. Under the hood you’ll find a 425 horsepower (430 ft lb torque) 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 mated to a lithium-ion based hybrid system. Anyone up for a road trip up the Pacific Coast Highway?
