Ciel is the epitome of a great and expressive luxury car that suggests how the history of Cadillac’s can synchronize perfectly authentic luxury and high-end technology of today’s time.
“Large, expressive luxury is innate to Cadillac and the Ciel recalls that heritage, while suggesting where the brand can go in the future,” said Clay Dean, global design director for Cadillac.
“Authentic luxury is driven by experiences, not just products, and Ciel is about the experience of the journey.”
Cadillac dressed up the Ciel in a special paint color – Cabernet – that’s reserved only for the concept car and was inspired by the “rich translucence of a glass of red wine held up to the sunlight.” The windshield frame, together with the shield grille, and the vertical lighting elements, are all Cadillac originals. The aforementioned frame also serves the purpose of providing an important structural and aesthetic element to the car. As for the vertical lighting set-up, the headlamps and taillamps all feature LED lighting that include a daytime running light graphic on the front end of the car.
