    Cadillac FXR.. A Better Rear View!

    This will probably shock many. The idea behind more unique styling ques is to get a way from the lucidious wealth of current design practices. The New Yorker is a great example of what American car manufacturers can do. Hope you find some integrity it the uniqueness of the Cadillac FXR!

    nice design, looks maybach ish to me. I agree, if you want to get noticed, get away from current designs as much as possible, examples: HHR, 300C, Element, Scion Xb, Aztek, etc. sometimes its a hit, like the hhr, sometimes its a miss like the aztek.

    Well...Rex says it looks melted. I like to think it's a Salvadore Dahli version. I tend to create concepts that are fluid. And that can have it's downfalls. But I definitely feel the resurgence of chrome in the automotie industry has not peaked. And there is more to be done with chrome applications than that which is currently on the market. I see a lot MORE chrome n the coming year's. AND, of course, body colored grills and rims will probably be the big thing in 2015.

    Your design would make a great Grand Marquis replacement, and I like it.
