The Cadillac has become a symbol of Americana, the ultimate achievement of the American Dream. The iconic American luxury brand, renowned for its high-performance and high style automobiles, celebrates its 110th anniversary with this beautifully illustrated volume. Cadillac takes readers on a visual journey through all the decades of its history. Here are presidents and Hollywood stars, closed-body cars and concept cars, the classic and the cutting-edge. Cadillac enthusiasts and car collectors alike will delight in an edition that brings to life the powerful and seductive energy of an American legend. Featuring over 200 full-colour photographs, the book chronicles the evolution of the Cadillac brand, from its first closed-body automobile in 1905 to the first electric car and the ubiquitous Escalade in 2009, to the brand-new 2013 ATS. Cadillac has also made a major impact on popular culture in music, film, art, and fashion, as illustrated in this collector’s item: from Elvis Presley, an avid Cadillac collector, to Bruce Springsteen’s hit song “Pink Cadillac,” to Prada, with its Cadillac design–inspired shoe, to Andy Warhol’s famed Twelve Cadillacs. In this both stylish and well-documented book, readers will discover why Cadillac truly is the Standard of the World.
