Cadillac Celestiq in the wild

Last Updated:

Fantastic. Futuristic. Impressive. Or just plain weird…

All these words, and more, come to mind by looking at these new photos of a Cadillac Celestiq driving down the street.

It is definitely original and a total stand-out in a crowd. But is it just too awkward as well? Photos of a bright red car going down the street quickly taken with a phone are the worst way to judge a car design. It does look huge and quite futuristic. And there must be a few hundred people a year who do want something a bit weird. The weirdest part for me is still the $ 340,000 starting price. But at the same time, this isn’t for someone who would be interested in a Rolls Royce or Bentley. This is for someone who craves something different. And it does look like a futuristic movie car from the future.

I say why not…

To be fair here is what it looks like in much better (official) photos. And colors.

  1. Really a mixed bag here: I’m glad to see the designers move away from the slab-sided, chiseled look used since the 1960’s but the front end looks like the man-eating devil vacuum cleaner from Hell. The elongated fastback with the tailights in the C-pillar is too weird for my tastes. At least they are trying something different.
