It’s been a while since Cadillac last had a big coupe in its range, but now the automaker has decided to show us what such a car would look like if it were to be built. Called the Elmiraj Concept ($TBA), the big coupe showcases “a new vision for luxury driving and the top of the brand’s expanding range,” according to Cadillac. What this means is even if the Elmiraj doesn't end up being built, the design and ideas seen on this study will find their way on the brand’s upcoming S-Class-rivaling flagship sedan. Measuring 5,207mm (205in) in length, the Elmiraj is a four-seat coupe seen as a successor to the 2011 Cadillac Ciel Concept in terms of design, luxury and performance. [See & Read More]

The Elmiraj is built on the chassis and structural elements of the upcoming Cadillac flagship sedan, which will have a rear-wheel-drive architecture. The study is powered by a 4.5-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine delivering approximately 500 hp and which uses the same technology as the new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 powering the 420hp 2014 CTS Vsport edition.

As far as the design is concerned, the Elmiraj evolves Cadillac’s “Art & Science” styling language and is seen as a “second chapter, following the Ciel Concept, of our exploration of the personas of true luxury,” according to Clay Dean, executive director of advanced design.

The dramatic proportions of the car symbolize power and performance, with the long bonnet and wheelbase and clean body side giving the car a lot of presence. The Elmiraj is unmistakably a Cadillac, with characteristic vertical lights, V-shaped grille and retro-styled “shoulders” at the rear-end.

The coupe rides on 22-inch aluminum wheels, with performance hints given by the bonnet vents, ceramic brakes and the Vsport badge.

On the inside, the Elmiraj welcomes its passengers with a futuristic dashboard combining luxury with driver-focused performance elements. The dash is split in two – the upper section is a single piece extending across the full width of the car, while the lower forms a cockpit space.

The interior is adorned with exotic materials such as camel leather, Brazilian Rosewood and backlit titanium trim, among others. The instrument panel includes transparent analog tachometer and speedometer, with a high-res display behind them projecting driver information and the output of a front-mounted camera. There’s also a 10-inch touchscreen for navigation and connectivity that can be concealed inside the instrument panel when not in use.

One more thing to take note about this concept is the new Cadillac emblem that does away with the classic laurel wreath keeping an evolved version of the brand's signature shield. Cadillac has said that it is exploring the idea of a new logo for the brand's cars but has not yet made a final decision.

We can only end with a question for the people at Cadillac: how can we convince you to build this beauty?
