OMG! The Cadillac Ciel!

Someone please call 911! There is a car on fire! (Fire truck arrives). “WTF! Where’s the fire?” (car enthusiast) “Oh we were talking about this car, this Cadillac Ciel! (Smiles sheepishly) It is a blazing automotive beauty! Don’t you agree?” (Police officer) "Sir, you are the fuck under arrest for reporting a false emergency!"

You know what, I'll just give you a citation, (looks at car).."well damn, there kinda was a fire here." (Firemen) I know right!"

Yes, indeed, the Cadillac Ciel is like a blaze of burning automotive fire! It’s a beast of thorough consideration of design aesthetic and composed with withering perfection. This car has the presence of hugeness and immensity - you can feel the power and essence of largeness. As such that the size of the car is also the size of its engine – one of terrifying power.

The beauty of the Ciel begins at the front. The eye is immediately attracted to the headlamps, which are ferociously sweeping down into the lower fascia. Sitting majestically right between them is the massive grille which resembles a wide ear-to-ear terse grin. One that says, “Yeah, I’m nice but I’m real bad!” The curves of the grille are sympathetic to the sweeping curves of the headlamps and compliment it splendidly. Furthermore, the curves of the grille are accented by being “drawn” into the hood. If you bring your eyes up to the windshield and follow the length of the hood back to the start of the grille, you’ll pick up the effect. It is so stately!

Moving on to the side of the car is the very Lamborghini-style mirrors – well at least that’s what comes to my mind – and they are vividly picturesque of fast-moving sheets of wind smoothly ripping past. Moving lower, on the side, are the huge wheels, and they have the effect of grounding this beast – like huge stones anchoring it to the ground. To describe further, it appears as if it’s tying down a huge machine that at anytime can tear off the pavement at dizzying speeds – lapping up air through its huge front grille!

Transitioning to the back of the car, the side panels reach into a neat, flawless, and classic rear end. The rear lights are crisp, sharp, and beautiful, and delightfully take hold of your eyes. You know, like the feel of a crisp Lays potato chip, as it crumbles perfectly in your mouth? That’s how these lights feel – except to the eyes instead (lol)! Moving further down, are the exhaust pipes, which are metal slits and are situated immediately beneath the taillights. This was such a gorgeous positioning decision. The beauty here is that the taillight and the exhaust pipe appear as one piece…it looks inclusive though separate. To finally sum up the rear, I must bring your attention to the huge front grille-shaped intrusion into the metal. It brings instantaneous memory of the front of the car’s front end, and thus, keeps the mind’s observation of the beauty of the car in motion! Topping it off is the nice fat Cadillac crest smack dead in the center of the shape – akin to a king’s seal. Like Rick Ross says – in incremental tones of loudness, “Imma boss! Imma Boss! Imma Boss!!”






Now here, is the trick played on the eye! You see above is the real ending edge of the body of the car. However, the light catcher makes the eye believe that the car's ending edge is that of the light catcher itself. Now alltogether the light catcher, inaddition to the top curve of the body of the car induces a swift dashing motion - an attitude of speed!

These wheels are a splendid addition to the design of the Cadillac Ciel. If you are really in tune with the design of this car, you will realize that the slits in the wheel spokes have the precise effect of radience, and this is due to a notion of emptiness - the slit being that you can see through it! The entire body of the car is drawn into the wheels and exuded right back out.


Checkout this side vent! It travels straight up until it reaches the long slanted front quarter panel seam. Genius!





Below are the pictures of the interior of the Cadillac Ciel. I must admit that I am at a total loss of design terminology to describe the magnificence of the Ciel's interior. My brain becomes confused as a rush of words and ideas of words is sent to my brain by my mind! My brain goes blank! But wait, I think I managed some words of description: robotic- architecturistic, jagged hand gestures and jeky dance moves. How that sound? (lol)








The only thing about this Cadillac Ciel is that it is a concept :(. I don't know if it will ever make it to production. I wish! I hope!
