Sold for $8,800 at 2007 The Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction.
This 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz was offered for sale at the 2007 Sports and Classic Car Auction presented by The Worldwide Group, in Hilton Head Island, SC where it was estimated to sell for $8,000 - $12,000. It was offered without reserve. It is powered by a 249 cubic-inch V8 engine with overhead valves and a four-speed automatic gearbox with overdrive. There is four-wheel disc brakes and a wheelbase that measures 114-inches.

During the first year of Eldorado production, just 532 units were created. It had been based on the Series 62 and carried only a golden nameplate 'Eldorado' on the center dash to distinguish it as a unique model. The body's were available in four colors including Azure Blue, Artisan Ochre, Alpine White and Aztec Red. The convertible tops were available in black or white. The cost to own was $7,750 which as nearly twice the cost of a base Series 62. Though production was low and cost was high, the Eldorado became synonymous with ultra-luxury.

During the years of Eldorado production, several changes would occur. A redesign occurred in 1971 and lasted until 1975. As the 1970s began to close, Cadillac remained to be a large and luxurious vehicle. This was against what other marque's were doing, as they were shrinking the size of the vehicle in an effort to appeal to customers who were concerned about emission regulations and the gas shortage.

By 1979, the Eldorado began decreasing in size, now sharing a chassis with the Buick Riviera and the Toronado. The engines began decreasing too, as the gas shortage was strangling the market.

This example is outfitted with many options including power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, level ride suspension, cruise control, power seats, power door locks, upgraded stereo radio with speakers in the front and rear, power antenna, power sunroof, leather seats, and wood trim accents.

This was one of the last cars to cross the auction block. The estimated value proved to be accurate as a new owner was found and the car was sold for $8,800 including buyer's premium.
