Cadillac unveils Ciel concept

August 26, 2011 12:00 AM

Cadillac turned some heads when they unveiled the new Ciel concept at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance - including talk show host Jay Leno's.

The comedian was on-hand at the auto show to film an episode of his television series, "Jay Leno's Garage." Leno chose to spotlight the new Ciel concept, which was certainly one of the talks of the show, writes Motor Authority.

The Ciel, which means "sky" in French, is a hard-top convertible with some unique features. For example, rather than sticking three seats in the back, the car features individual bucket seats, meaning the two passengers in the back get the same experience and legroom as those up front.

Cadillac presented the car as the ultimate luxury experience. Each passenger's seat is wired for connectivity, much like a first-class cabin on a high-end airline. There are even blankets that can pulled out if you want to drive with the top down at night.

The Ciel is still a concept, but given the positive reception, it wouldn't be a surprise to see a version of the Ciel at dealerships soon.

Investing in a luxury car can be truly rewarding if you have the means to do so. However, these vehicles can often become quite expensive to repair if you don't keep up with your regular maintenance, such as vehicle inspections and tune-ups.
