The one-off 1,000-hp V16-powered beauty was captured firing up and cruising.
You can trace Cadillac’s history of creating sixteen-cylinder engines back to the 1930's Cadillac V-16. A little over 4,000 of these were built over a period of eleven years, and it took another 60 years before Cadillac revisited the idea of using 16 cylinders with the Sixteen Concept unveiled at the 2003 Detroit Auto Show. The elegant concept revived the models of the Thirties, while packing a naturally-aspirated 13.6-liter V16, rated at 1,000 hp and 1,000lb-ft of torque, with power sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic.
The one-off is a rare sight, and thanks to DtRockstar1 we have a great video of it at the Eyes on Design car show with a Lamborghini Countach keeping it company.
