To pull the weight of a car that huge and bloated! You know if Cadillac builds such a "superluxury" car, it will weigh 10,000 lbs.!

I can visualize that a small group of wealthy people will actually buy the $300,000-350,000 Maybach...But what sane person would actually buy a $300,000-ish Cadillac??!!??!!

1979 300 SD
350,000 miles
1982 300D-gone---sold to a buddy
1985 300TD
270,000 miles
1994 E320
not my favorite, but the wife wanted it

Im pretty sure the heaviest Cadillac of the past decade or so (probably the fleetwood) would not weigh nearly as much as even a 6 cyl w140.

(By no means am I saying lighter is better)

I think the Cadillac 16 is the best looking of the new luxury-concepts, and the only good looking new Cadillac. Its too bad that when it comes down to it, its still just a Cadillac and will probably be built accordingly.
