The long awaited update to the Defender has finally surfaced in concept form. The DC100 explores the potential future of the iconic Defender with a modern take of the 4×4′s utilitarian, purpose-driven design. The concept ignites a four-year plan for the company to create the perfect, modern-day Defender for the 21st century. Lets just hope Land Rover finally brings the good ol’ Defender back stateside.
Revealed at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance was Cadillac’s new concept car, Ciel (French for sky). The 4-door convertible Cadillac Ciel is not likely to make it to production, however there have been rumors of a slight rendition. This model has an extended list of luxurious features such as a small humidor for cigars, a cashmere blanket stored near the headrests in the rear seat, and Italian olive wood used throughout the cabin to name a few. There are carbon ceramic brake rotors that peek from behind the 22 inch rims and underneath the hood houses a 3.6L V-6 engine with twin turbochargers complete with a hybrid low speed all electric transmission, pushing a total of 425 horsepower. Some have speculated that it has a slight resemblance to the 4th generation Lincoln Continental, complete with suicide electric doors. What do you think? See pics and videos below.
