Cadillac Sixteen (Yes, a V-16)
I never liked Cadillacs until I came to the States. That event coincided with some of the best cars ever made by Cadillac – it was as though they put on a special effort just for me. And I am a complete convert; in my opinion, Cadillacs are now the best looking and most desirable of all American cars.
The Cadillac Sixteen, a design exercise from 2003, is the essence of all that has been good about Caddies ever since. Styling features have influenced later models and the car itself, with its 14.6 liter 16 cylinder engine, is the perfect combination of sports and luxury. It looks a brute and, thankfully, it is. No wonder Cadillacs today are serious contenders for the motorist’s checkbook.
Here’s what Top Gear had to say about the Sixteen when they tried it (lucky blighters).
