DRIVE- 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe
Finally, a concept car you can park in your driveway. The CTS coupe isn't
exactly the practical choice but where else can you get luxury, art, and
performance in one package for a reasonable price? Tom Voelk takes a look
at this stealth fighter on wheels.
2012 Cadillac CTS Coupe
The CTS Coupe fully embraces Cadillac's new design theme, "Art and
Science". By mixing modern technology and performance with a bold, edgy
design with a few throwback cues, Cadillac makes their statement in the
luxury car market.

Complete 2011 Cadillac CTS4 Coupe review + photo gallery on Auto123.com :
The question above, perhaps more eloquently worded, was asked of your
correspondent numerous times over the course of a week-long test drive. If
you're living under a rock, the gas-station kid thought he was looking at
the Cadillac CTS-V: a supercharged, V8-powered range of CTS variants that
pack 550-plus ponies and come standard with the ability to turn driver's
licenses instantly to confetti....

Mercedes S-Class Coupe Concept INTERIOR
The white instrument panel exudes sensual clarity. Its curved shape is
reminiscent of a whale fluke just before it re-enters the water. Like the
entire interior it is dominated by flowing lines: the upper and lower wave
create a clear structure.
The upper section of the instrument panel seems to float sensually in front
of the dashboard as a so-called top layer. The instrument panel seamlessly
transitions into the doors in a wrap-around design. The wavelike motion
continues in the door panels.
The ventilation nozzles, which among other places are housed as a
four-piece cluster in the centre of the instrument panel, have a futuristic
and highly detailed design: fins that route the air stream surround an
oblong hole. The ventilation nozzles are designed to add contrasts and are
made of a mix of white aluminium with a ceramics-like appearance and
brushed and polished aluminium.
The aluminium control elements have a functional and clean design, and
provide an exciting contrast to the organic and avant-garde shapes that
On top of the free-form surface under a reduced hood are the 30.7-cm
(12.3-inch) screens familiar from the new S-Class. They have an aspect
ratio of 8:3. In the Concept S-Class Coupé the fully glazed colour
displays are even slimmer and seem to float even more freely. As high-tech
elements they offer an exciting contrast to the sensual landscape of the
instrument panel. The colour scheme of the displays is bluish and
consequently sporty and modern.
A touch screen showing four world clocks is located on the centre console.
The driver can choose which clocks to display: To do so, the driver first
scrolls on a globe in the display and selects a time zone before a
drop-down menu offers the corresponding city selections. The world clock
concept was designed and implemented by designers and engineers at the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Center in Palo Alto, California, USA.
The central command unit on the centre console looks like a shiny jewel.
Its extremely high-quality "black diamond" surface creates depth of field.
The "black diamond" method uses the chemical CVD (chemical vapour
deposition) gas phase process to deposit a precious metal on a high-sheen
chrome surface at temperatures of 1000°C. The metal reacts with the
surface to form a layer that is highly scratch-resistant and has a high
The door panels of the Concept S-Class Coupé are made from aluminium.
Using computer algorithms delicate topographic lines were milled into the
metal and mimic the contours of the door-mounted control elements. This
creates an interesting light pattern with tiny sparkling highlights. For
this creation the designers drew their inspiration from rock formations in
Utah, USA. The progressive perforations of the loudspeakers were also
generated using algorithms and display some intelligent aesthetics of
Like the entire interior the seats have a highly dynamic and natural "flow
of lines" and continue the sculpted design of the shapes. The front seats
evoke associations of haute-couture tailoring because their sculpted shape
embodies sensual lines reminiscent of figurines in fashion design. In the
upper section of the seat the side bolsters envelope the occupant like a
collar. The vertical lines of the seats come courtesy of an array of
delicate piping. Piping on the side bolsters provides contrast and like the
perforation of the seat surfaces is a factor in the sporty-elegant
The choice of colours and materials plays with the extroverted contrasts of
anthracite and white as well as aluminium, and bolsters both the timeless
modernity and avant-garde nature of the design and the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé to ultimate exclusivity, high quality and perfection. In
this spirit the instrument panel and seats are made from supple calfskin.
The roofliner of the vehicle is made from hand-woven silk and consequently
underscores the exclusive character of the interior.
