1930 Cadillac V-16 Roadster

Since its unveiling on December 10, 1929, the Cadillac V-16 stood out as an unparalleled symbol of prestige, as acclaimed by author and historian Roy A. Schneider. It represented the pinnacle of American automotive excellence—a remarkable Cadillac V-16 roadster, with seating for two individuals positioned behind its mighty 452-cubic-inch engine, resting on a 152-inch-wheelbase chassis.

This extraordinary vehicle would elevate Cadillac’s already substantial reputation to unprecedented levels for many years to follow, solidifying its status as an unrivaled icon of luxury and craftsmanship.
