    16 Cylinder AWD Cadillac Eldorado by Moslerby Mosler



    From the article:
    Up for auction is this extremely rare and unique 1999 Cadillac Eldorado owned by the late Clarence Clemons, saxophonist of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. The car is only 1 of 5 “TwinStar” models built by Mosler Engineering in 2000 with an additional NorthStar V8 engine in the trunk powering the rear wheels. The result is a combined 575HP and 4-wheel drive.

    You have to add two quarts every 1000 miles instead of the usual one.

    I love me some cut-and-paste drivetrains like this, but they really did extensive changes to the bodywork too. Mad props on this fabulous unicorn.

    That is a contraption dreamt off in a smoke filled room, and that is not tobacco smoke

    From the CandD article:

    60 mph in 5.0 seconds and on through the quarter in 13.4 seconds at 108 mph. That's a good bit quicker than our last Eldorado Touring Coupe's 6.8-second sprint to 60 mph and quarter-mile time of 15.2 seconds, but Mosler's guys claim repeatable 12.7-second quarters and 4.6-second blasts to 60 mph.

    The downside of a twin-engined Eldo is a peculiar long-wheelbase look coupled with fairly porky mass -- 4780 pounds at the curb. Our overall gas-consumption rate worked out to a relatively gluttonous 10 mpg, too, but this pales into insignificance when you start the car in a gas-station forecourt. See, the normal ignition key starts the front engine, but you then have to thumb a little black switch on the center console to start the rear engine. That gets the attention of everyone within earshot, we can tell you.
