Star Of The Show! - Cadillac Converj Concept - 2009 Detroit
Detroit Editor Todd Lassa talks to designer Simon Cox about the stunning Cadillac Converj Concept, the breakout star of this year's Detroit Auto Show.
Cadillac Converj Prototype
The Cadillac Converj Concept takes advantage of GM's freshly renamed "Voltec" power system, previously referred to as E-Flex. The new Converj combines Volt power with Cadillac style, utilizing every design element we come to expect from Caddy. It gets a much more forward design than last years Cadillac CTS coupe but balances things out with a fastback style. Inside are cool blue accents over a white leather everything.
