Cadillac Le Mans Concept
The 1953 Cadillac Le Mans was an iconic concept car bearing the name of France's legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race, which Cadillac had competed in back in 1950. This two-seat, low-profile (51-inches to the windshield frame) fiberglass-bodied roadster was powered by a 250-HP version of Cadillac's 331 CI V-8 engine, which, at the time, was the most powerful engine ever used in a Cadillac model. Unfortunately, the model never made it into production — it wasn't until nearly 50 years later until the luxury carmaker released another vehicle with a similar design, the Cadillac XLR. Of the four units built, only three are known to exist today, with one in the prestigious Cadillac Historical Collection.
