    Designer Envisions New Cadillac C-Ville Luxury Sedan Concept

    For those of you who are perhaps too young to remember, the Seville was a long-running nameplate in Cadillac's arsenal, which first appeared as a designation for the two-door hardtop version of the finned Eldorados built between 1959 and 1960.
    A decade and-a-half latter, the Seville name reappeared on a standalone model supposedly created as the wreath and crest brand's answer to German imports from the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz, before it was replaced by the STS in 2005 and to some extent, the XTS just last year.

    Despite the presence of the new XTS in the GM luxury brand's lineup, IED Turin graduate Samir Sadikhov, who gained fame with his stunning Xerzi concept that finished second in the 2011 Ferrari World Design Contest before heading for a year-long stint at Lamborghini, has come up with a new idea for a Cadillac full-size sedan.

    No. It looks like he just rendered one of the wall concepts...

    I'm all for a more athletic XTS... but the concept doesn't even follow Cadillac design language. And what the hell is with the giant c pillar fins? They do nothing besides possibly obstruct vision and look ridiculous.

    The grille also looks like one of the prototype Ciel grilles.

    Yes I agree. It looks all out of proportion and nothing like Caddy's design language.


    I do dig the wheels though!!!!!

    This guy is a designer?
    Part of design is understanding the product in which you are designing... this is awful to say the least. His sketches look a lot better than his final product.

    It doesn't even make sense... It looks like he took the front of the Ciel concept, added the new Scion TC roof line, gave it a C7 Stingray concept rear end, and added awful C-Pillar fins that make it look like a CTS Coupe from the side.
    This isn't design. It's completely unoriginal and completely void of any true or real modern Cadillac cues.

    Anybody who Photoshops on this site could have came up with the same thing in about 10 minutes of not trying.

    "C-Ville"?

    Is that like "EYE- Rack"?

    It's not at all bad. The sculpting along the doors is way over-wrought, but it's proportions are pleasing. Perhaps the C pillar is a bit too thick.

    So it's a slabby fastback Dodge Charger with a Cadillac logo.

    Its not horrendous. If it were to be produced it would be washed down heavily.

    As for the comments regarding design language; eventually all things change... a few tweaks here and there would bring it more in line. It's not the worst thing i've seen.

    And exactly what Cadillac "design language" did Art & Science follow? I not enamored of this design but I'm growing tired of A&S.

    Pretty Ugly- Looks like an Al Capone or Obama armored protection vechicle.
    GM does need a real full size car with some room in side instead of all the so called mid/full size being being built on the small/mid size Epsilon Platform. Maybe the Chevy SS platform can be a real full size platform for Chevy and Cadillac.

    Eh, the front has potential, but i think the whole back half of the car simply doesn't work.

    Caddy needs to stick to the current naming convention.

    The Name is the best thing about the concept... Bring back the "Villes"... Seville and Deville.

    Dear MonaroSS,

    Please add some much needed design details to this including the Art and Science front grill, headlights, and chrome DLO befitting of a Cadillac luxury sedan. Thank you in advance, and as always I am sure your revisions will be breathtaking.


    Sincerely Yours,

    Your personal design " FANBOI "
