Description

If the Cadillac brand is known for anything it’s groundbreaking style, luxurious appointments and, of course, power. With Ford and Chrysler nipping at Cadillac’s heels, every successive model needed to be fresh with innovation and for 1957 this was certainly true! The Eldorado lineup was entirely redesigned with a lower stance. As in years past, the Eldorado possessed 325 horsepower versus 300 horses for other Cadillacs. The Eldorado Biarritz Convertible retailed at princely $7,286 and as one of the more expensive models in the Cadillac lineup supply was limited with approximately 1,800 sold that year. Today, the Eldorado Biarritz remains a highly coveted example of Cadillac’s superior design and engineering.
