Cadillac Opera Coupe by husseindesign Cadillac Opera Coupe by husseindesign
Another retro-futuristicly styled Caddy. this time it's the Sville Opera Coupé
The original car was built between 1979 and 1981 and I did't anything about it and it looks untill I saw it in a TV show. I saw it for like a few seconds, but the sapre tyre storage behind the front wheel caught my attention. I had never seen a relatively modern car with that feature which was used in the luxury coupés of the 20's and 30's of the last century like the legendary Mercedes-Benz 500K Roadster of 1929 [link] . So I did my researches on the net to find more pictures of it. I even wasn't sure whether it was a Caddy or a lincoln for I didn't have time to look it at well on TV :D
Used Photoshop to do the rendering as usual. I tried to do a "natural" background this time with trees and stuff.
The whole drawing took me about 6 hours (sketching excluded)

it does looks futuristic. But Id like to see the rims replaced with the black thingy. Might be much more compatible, dont you think so?

Neat... I like it. Not as elegant as the SIXTEEN but cool none-the-less.

This would HAVE to be powered by a sixteen cylinder V16 as all of the top of the line 1930s Cadillacs were.

Ferrari V12s are for poor people. :D

I love Cadillacs! :omfg:

Seeing one of it's kind being alive again stirrs my spirit, even if it's just a concept. The design reminds me of an Aston Martin.. DB9 model to be exact. But this one's much more beautiful, I think. And I just love the Cadillac grill. :)

+fav.. who could resist it?
