If you never knew that Cadillac used to build a pickup version of its Coupe DeVille, you are not alone, we didn’t either.
Meet the Mirage, Cadillac’s own El Camino. Built in just 204 units, this car is even rarer than a McLaren P1 and if you see one out in the wild, you must consider yourself a really lucky person.
Powered by a 8.2-litre V8, the Mirage offers lots of torques to move you around but not so many horses as it is rated at around 200 of them. Remember though, these were the ‘70s, with the then oil crisis severely impacting the industry, which was seeking of ways to lower the thirst of their vehicles, hence the irrational power figures from cars of that era.
This particular example even has a special opening for your golf clubs, located behind the passenger door. Utes were always cool, but now that I know this Cadillac exists, I think they became even cooler.
