In my opinion the Concept's front clip includes more current "Jaguar" than "Aston Martin". Regardless, I think it handsome and fresh and a much further development of the platform currently in use for the Fusion and MKZ. A refresh of the MKZ using a version of the Concept's front clip wouldn't be a bad idea.
A read 3 quarter view is very "Bentley". I especially like the greenhouse. The chrome trim at the bottom might be very difficult to keep up - however - when "driven" one let's that problem be cared for the "help".
Gorgeous isn't it. I mentioned recently of a place remaining for a pure luxury sedan - not a luxury hotrod sedan. Not high volume - pure luxury and with some exclusivity. The early 60's Lincoln Contenintal sedan and convertible with suicide doors did it. No apologies necessary.
POTUS gets around in an armored "tank". Shameful we've stooped to this degree but reality of our world situation requires it. President Kennedy was murdered in the rear seat of an open Lincoln convertible. We'll never again see POTUS in such an open vehicle.
It's all over Yahoo this morning and stunningly beautiful. An entirely different "take" on luxury from Cadillac. It recalls a Bentley sedan "look" from several angles especially from the rear looking forward. The 2.7 Ecoboost is standard with a 3.0 version optional and AWD based upon the system used in the coming Focus RS. I can already see "Black Label" versions.
With Cadillac going so hard on the high end performance issue - I like the idea of Lincoln doing the personalized customized look. "Look" generates sales. Hyper handling and low zero to 60's isn't everything. It helps. However. Customers are out there looking for something really "personal" and "smart" to be seen in. Myself included.
Notice. Cruz announced @ Liberty University. Kiss of death. He'll go down in a blaze of "glory"? Uh huh. Way too many Republicans still believe Sarah Palin "Knows what she's talking about". Now wouldn't those 2 be a brilliant pair? Actually, they deserve each other.
We'll get the newest powertrains revealed in New York in a couple weeks. Seems the new CT6 gets a Cadillac exclusive 3.0 twin turbo V6/8 speed automatic top-of-the-line. Another Cadillac exclusive is the new 3.6 V6/8 speed automatic. What's even more interesting? A new 8L45 automatic for the 2.0 turbo and the new 3.6 in the 2016 ATS and CTS. Apparently the new 2016 Camaro will not share these Cadillac exclusive powertrains. Awaiting in the wings? A CT6-V series with a twin turbo V8/8 speed automatic. Bob Lutz mentioned recently he'd driven the new CT6.
Anyone seen one? The interiors appear drop dead gorgeous. I'd be inclined to favor a pearl white exterior with the "Modern Heritage" custom interior. An optional exterior in that wonderful metallic red. Hybrid, of course with the sliding glass roof. Comments?
LOL - 5 thumbs down. What's the matter Republicans? Can't take the heat? The "good ol' Republican white boys" have what's left of a decade before they'll all be dead and gone. Then what'll the Republican Party look like? Anyone wanna guess?
I wanna see Cruz's Cuban certificate of birth........... All's fair. Got it? His Canadian "false" birth certificate? I'm certain it's fake. If, as "birthers claim" a birth certificate from the State of Hawaii isn't "real" - neither is one from a "foreign" country like Canada.
Plus. We're enjoying a very wet Spring to the point our roads are horrible. My left front MGP brake calipher cover got loose and with to "calipher cover heaven" Monday. Oil field trucks do a real damage under these conditions - plus - they're covered in mud constantly which gets left on roads to be picked up by our cars. YUCK. Try going to a 25 cent carwash - bring your shovel just to get into a bay.
Local Cadillac dealers cannot keep Escalade Platinum Editions. And this during the oil price confusion. LOL By the way guys, heavy construction both residential and commercial continues here. We do expect some slower growth going forward for a time, but jeez guys, it's been so nuts a little slower growth dives us some much needed breathing room.
Interesting. I compliment Ford and get 4 thumbs down. I expected "Ford" folks not to like my take on the Escalade. Tough. A freshened Navigator simply isn't in the same league with Escalade.
Now. All that said. Cadillac Escalade Platinum Editions? World class. OMG. You must experience that interior. Make mine in pearl white, light cashmere interior, short wheelbase with a Hennesey supercharger upgrade.
Ho hum. Whatever. They work for entirely different customers. Saw another metallic red "S" yesterday here in Midland TX. Simply gorgeous. And I see a couple of Fisker Karma's around town. One in a deep metallic charcoal with a lovely butter tan leather interior. The other one? Oh my. Metallic yellow/gold "wrap" with a ugly blue dash cover and blacked out windows. Speaking of ugly "wraps". Took a picture of a brand new Corvette Z06 several days ago with a pebble grained mat charcoal "wrap". To each his own, so they say. Love Sunday's here with great weather, all the "fun" cars come out to play. I did mention the red Ferrari 458? New Corvette's everywhere - name a color. Lithia has 2 Camaro Z28's, one black, one charcoal. And a red Camaro SS 1LE.
