The iconic ’60 Cadillac convertible is no longer the standard-bearer of luxury sedans, but the ’71 convertible is still in demand.
And if you don’t already own one, you’re in luck: Cadillac is rolling out a new ’71 to compete with the likes of the 2015 Cadillac ATS and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the latter of which is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged 2.3-liter engine.
The ’71 also makes an appearance in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA and the 2017 Jaguar XF.
The styling, however, is completely different.
The new ’73 convertible is almost entirely black, and features a very large and pronounced tailgate that extends over the passenger’s back.
The tailgate opens out and extends into the backseat, and the rear window is made of glass that blends into the design.
There are no vents, and there is no roof, and instead, there’s a small rear spoiler.
The interior, too, is a different shade of blue, which is a bit of a departure from the black of the ’72 and ’74.
There is no steering wheel, however.
Instead, the instrument panel has a flat black edge.
The door handles are also black, but they have a chrome finish.
Inside, there are three seats that are slightly elevated, and a large leather steering wheel that extends from the top of the dash.
The car features a large rear spoiler and rear spoiler-mounted side mirrors, and both feature a black bumper.
The seats are removable and fold up into the glove box, and an adjustable center console is also available.
The rear seats also fold up.
There’s a center console that sits behind the driver and rear seats, and has a rear hatch that can be used to access the rear of the car.
The driver can also fold the center console and seat back into the center stack.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel is very low-profile, and it’s available in five colors: matte black, black with gold trim, black in-line with silver, silver in-side with silver and silver with gold.
The steering wheel features a digital clock and is made from a solid material.
The seat back is made out of a material called Polyurethane, which has a smooth surface, and can be easily cleaned.
It has a light matte finish, and comes with a leather-like finish.
The exterior mirrors are made of an aluminum alloy.
The hood and side grille are made from carbon fiber, and they have an anti-roll bar.
There aren’t any headlights, but there are rear foglights.
The instrument cluster is made up of four digital displays: the main infotainment screen, the center infotag, the climate control and the navigation.
The center infog also includes a clock, and also includes the date, time and distance information.
It also has a compass and other features, which are very similar to the ’67 Pontiac Firebird.
The front of the body is made with a carbon fiber composite, which offers a lot of rigidity and looks very good.
The headlights are a large white LED unit that’s mounted on the windshield, and feature a wide-angle lens.
They are mounted in a large circular aperture.
The headlamps feature a white LED light, and are mounted on a white plastic frame that can fold up to reveal a small opening in the front.
The dashboard has an integrated infotasium with a digital display.
The back of the interior is also carbon fiber.
There isn’t much to say about the interior of the new ’72 Cadillac, which looks to be more of a crossover than a sedan.
It’s an interesting design, but Cadillac hasn’t really explained how this new model will perform in the real world.
