If you live in Japan and want a full-size luxury sedan, your options have just been expanded with the introduction of the Cadillac CT6.
The American luxury sedan is set to reach showrooms across the Pacific the beginning of next month. But before it does, the CT6 will be on display on the first floor in the Yurakucho Hankyu Men’s department store in Tokyo. The special exhibit will allow members of the public and potential customers to see the car in person and listen to the 34-speaker Bose audio system.
In Japan, the CT6 will carry a tax-in price tag of ¥9,980,000. That works out to nearly $100,000 at current exchange rates, or nearly double the base price in the United States.
By comparison, the Lexus LS starts at ¥8,548,000 ($84k) in base, rear-drive LS460 spec, but tops out at ¥15,954,000 ($157k) for the top-of-the-line LS600hL with the Executive package, while Mercedes charges ¥9,980,000 $98k) for the S300h – the same as the Cadillac – with prices escalating past ¥22,220,000 ($218k) for the Maybach S550, and a whopping ¥32,970,000 ($325k) for the AMG S65.
