Read up more on this complex fender at the link. Here is Motortrend's video to show you why it is so complex.Cadillac was the scene of the final fender moment. A colleague of mine was looking at the new CTS (pictured at top), whose complexly stamped front fender is a work of body engineering art. He became briefly aware of a fast-moving swarm of suits: senior VW executives accompanying the mercurial Ferdinand Piech on his whirlwind walk-round of the show. He glanced at the CTS’s fender and muttered something in German, before moving swiftly on, the VW suit swarm in close attendance.
What did he say? Fortunately, my colleague speaks a little German. Turns out Piech thinks the CTS front fender is so complex it must be made of plastic. Got news for you Ferdinand. It’s all steel. And stamped right here in the USA.
That kinda made my day.
Looking for a picture...
