1953 Cadillac Le Mans Concept

Created in 1953, the Cadillac Le Mans received its name for the grueling and prestigious 24 Hours of LeMans race in France. The concept never went into production, but the design was an exercise in the use of fiberglass and two-seater design.

Cadillac's involvement at Le Mans was through Briggs Cunningham who had raced Cadillacs (and Cadillac powered vehicles) at the 24 Hours of LeMans. Four fiberglass-bodied Cadillac LeMans Show Cars were built for various shows and exhibits including the Motorama. The concept never went into production, but the design was an exercise in the use of fiberglass and two-seater design.

The Cadillac Le Mans was the first Cadillac model to wear the wrap-around windshield.
