The Elmiraj concept is a large coupe at 205 inches long. Stylistically the Elmiraj concept takes off where the Ciel concept from two years ago, left off. The concept advances Cadillac’s philosophy of dramatic design and performance, and its new commitment to lightweight, agile cars. There’s no word if the Elmiraj is a preview of a new large Cadillac coupe, but the concept is is constructed with chassis and structural elements of an ongoing Cadillac vehicle development project slated for future production.

The Elmiraj is powered by a 4.5-liter twin turbocharged V8 that packs 500 hp. The engine uses the same technology from the newc Twin Turbo V6 in the upcoming 420-hp 2014 CTS Vsport edition, and expands it to the classic performance format of a V8 engine.

“This concept is the second chapter, following the Ciel Concept, of our exploration of the personas of true luxury,” said Clay Dean, executive director of advanced design. “This project originated around the simple persona of “the drive,” or the visceral experience of driving a great luxury coupe. It’s an expression of the confidence and poise you feel driving a high-performance car, which we feel is an essential element of top-level luxury.”
