 2002 Cadillac Eldorado Collector's Series

Cadillac announced that 2002 would be its last year of the Eldorado, so Cadillac built only 1596 Eldorado's to commemorate the 1953 Cadillac Eldorado, which as many of you already may know was Cadillac's first year of the Eldorado. You could only get them in 2 colors, which both were the original colors of the first Eldorado, you could get only 300 in Aztec Red, and 1296 in Alpine White.

Every "Collector's Series" came out of the factory with every option offered for the ETC Eldorado. The Eldorado Collector's Series had numerous details that set it apart from a normal ETC. The interior in the Alpine White ECS came with a 2 tone Grey interior. In the normal ETC, where the interior had wood grain, the ECS has carbon fiber which gives it a unique and sporty look.

Then the most important detail, and which makes it a true Collector's Series is, the dash plaque displaying what consecutive vehicle it is, if it doesn't have that plaque then its not a real ECS. On the exterior, the paint scheme didn't stray to far from a stock ETC, there is no chrome and everything is painted on both the Aztec Red and Alpine White. The ECS still sports ETC badges on the exterior, which hides it's differences a little more.

The rims are a 7 spoke, 16 inch chrome model which was designed specifically for this model, it may look similar to some Eldorado's but they aren't the same. The suspension isn't too much different then the ETC, it includes Speed sensitive steering and Stabili-Trac but it does have a lower stance than your run of the mill Eldorado, giving it a much more aggressive and sporty look.

Now, on to the drivetrain, The Eldorado has been spiced up a little for the ECS. The first most notable change is the exhaust system, it is a stainless dual exhaust not too much different from the stock ETC, until you turn the key. It has an unmistakable rumble that will have anyone who gets behind the wheel itching to hit the gas a little harder. The rumble of it's exhaust was designed to purposely echo the rumble of a big block 1953 Eldorado, and they did a pretty good job of it. It also brings the horsepower up 25 horses, ECS Cadillac has a total of 325 BHP. There have been rumors that the ECS has a performance chip installed to increase top speed, although it has not been confirmed by GM. The ECS tops out at a unbelievable 155 MPH.

This Unique vehicle has been pampered and Garaged since new. It has never been driven in the snow and never even on a salted road. The tires are Brand New, puncture-sealing Vogues, (not even 100 miles on them).

There are not many of these cars around and very few come up for sale. Those that do usually have three times more mileage on them.

The car is located in Bensalem, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia.  About 40 minutes north of the Philadelphia International Airport, you could fly in and drive home.  Bensalem is convenient to the PA Turnpike, Route 1, and I-95.

This car is also offered for local sale, so I am reserving the right to end the auction early.  Please contact me for specific questions, and if you want to make a proper offer for the car, it's possible that the auction could be ended early.

Cadillac HQ has a New York address

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 09:00:00 EST

The new home of Cadillac will be in the 330 Hudson building in New York City's Hudson Square, putting the luxury marque smack dab in the middle of three of the city's hippest areas, SoHo, Greenwich Village and Tribeca.
The announcement is yet another milestone in the company's controversial decision to relocate administrative and marketing operations away from Detroit and into the Big Apple.
"The addition of a headquarters office in New York is a key step in Cadillac's ongoing global expansion," Cadillac boss Johan de Nysschen said, according to The Detroit Free Press. "There is no better atmosphere in which to better immerse ourselves into luxury consumer and brand expertise."

Cadillac teases production ELR ahead of Detroit Auto Show

Tue, 18 Dec 2012 10:14:00 EST

General Motors has just confirmed that the 2014 Cadillac ELR will make its official debut next month at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. We've already seen the ELR testing earlier this year using the same range-extended electric drive system as the Chevrolet Volt, and based on the shadowy image above, we're happy to see that the coupe's styling has stayed pretty true to 2009 Converj Concept.
The two-door ELR will be built alongside the Volt at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant starting later next year. Aside from this info, Cadillac has remained tight-lipped on the specific details of the car. But all that will all change on January 15.
Until then, all we have to offer you is the press release posted after the jump.

How GM's grueling 24-hour test gets the kinks out of its performance cars

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:30:00 EST

One of the biggest challenges automakers face when designing a high-performance car is making sure that it is both fast and reliable. For General Motors, any car that might be taken to the track by its owner - like the Corvette, Camaro Z/28 (shown above) and the Cadillac CTS-V, for example - undergoes a rigorous and strenuous 24-hour test by engineers at the Milford Proving Grounds, as pointed out by Car and Driver.
We've posted on this topic in the past - on a video showing the Camaro ZL1 being brutalized, for instance - but this article gives a more in-depth look at what actually happens behind the scenes... including what that poor ZL1 went through. Though the test isn't for 24 hours straight, the cars are pushed as hard as possible by some of GM's best drivers with only the brakes and tires replaced frequently.
We don't want to ruin the fun for you, but it is an interesting article that tells just some of what GM does to develop its sports cars. Check out the full article over at Car and Driver for the rest of the story.
