Cadillac has shown its latest high-end concept, the Elmiraj, ahead of a public showing at this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The Elmiraj forecasts how a future halo model for the brand might appear, taking more than a few cues from the 2011 Ciel.

On the front of that long aquiline nose is a new Cadillac logo that does away with the wreath leaving a flatter, wider shield.

The name itself is a clear reference to the Eldorado coupe models of the past, with the 1967 model in particular listed as a design influence.

The styling however takes the Art and Science design direction of current Cadillacs, while simplifying the details. Razor-edge lighting front and rear, an angular glasshouse and bonnet and guard vents carry over existing Cadillac themes.

Under the bonnet beats a 4.5 litre twin-turbo V8 punching out 373kW and 678Nm, derived from the 3.6 litre V6 engine fitted to the upcoming CTS V-sport.

Inside the 2+2 cabin you'll find leather, backlit titanium trim highlights and wood veneers crafted from fallen Brazilian rosewood. Rear ‘valet’ seats move forward to aid passenger entry.

With an overall length of 5207mm and width of 1930mm the Elmiraj certainly carries the dimensions of a Cadillac flagship: the big coupe is a whopping 401mm longer (but 13mm narrower) than a Bentley Continental.

With a rear-wheel-drive chassis and V8 engine, the Elmiraj is built on “ongoing Cadillac vehicle development project slated for future production" according to a statement from Cadillac.

Any eventual production model would sit above the current range-topping XTS - although a volume-selling four-door sedan to tackle the S-Class and 7 Series is more likely.
