Covering concepts can be quite the tease for car fanatics. Mainly because it’s a toss-up whether or not they will actually ever make it into production. Regardless, car concepts serve as an insight into what the future may hold, and how far the fusion of luxury and power have come over the years.

Debuting last week at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach, the Cadillac Escala concept certainly turned heads thanks to its futuristic body design. Spanish for “scale,” the Escala is a larger and more luxurious sibling to the 2016 CT6, Cadillac’s top-notch sedan. The Escala measures half a foot longer than the CT6, includes a three-dimensional pattern in the grille and the 22-inch wheels thanks to their two layers of spokes. It also boasts OLED lights that are set deep in the fascia and runs on a 4.2 liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. It’s a prototype engine Cadillac plans of developing further for future models and offers fuel saving 4-cylinder operation in case city driving makes up the bulk of the miles. The interior hosts both the latest in tech innovations and relaxation for passengers with a series of three OLED screens in the front cabin. The vehicle also features hand-tailored fabric for the seating areas and extended legroom in the rear for enhanced comfort. As for availability, we’ll just have to wait and see if this concept makes the cut.
