As promised, I said I would post the latest info and data whenever it arrives, so here are more images of the details in the concept. As previously reported by Edmunds, we probably won’t see many of the gadgetry and tech you see on the concept be incorporated into production, but hopefully there will be enough tech to keep us satisfied.

General Motors announced that it will not bring the 16-cylinder fast car to the market. The Cadillac 16, revealed back in 2003 at the North American Auto Show, was believed to bring joy to Cadillac and more interested consumers. Although we love it, General Motors decided that the market was not ready for the biggest boy of the playground. Maybe we’ll see it in the few years to come.
If it were to come into production in the future, the base model would most likely be a V8, while the top-of-the-line Sixteen will have a V12. Until this day, the legacy of the revealing of the Cadillac Sixteen still lives with us, but sometimes, things are just too good to be true.
You might want to sit down before fainting over a Toyota. This year, Toyota will present its FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept which will be a super car powered by a 3.5-L V6 engine with more than 400 horsepowers working together with a hybrid powertrain with a 0-60 time of around 4 seconds.
Although a mere concept, what you see here will certainly be what you get at the Detroit auto show. The FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept that will unveil at the NAIAS will be the size of a Lexus SC430, except wider. There will also be room for 4 passengers. The engine will be visible through a hole in the hood, similar to that of the Audi R8, where the engine is visible through a piece of glass.
Inside, the aggressive design from the outside is carried onto the interior, which has sharp edges throughout the cabin. Yes, it may look cool in the pictures, but the question really is: will this ever be made into production? Kevin Hunter, VP of the Calty Design Research reports that the price tag will fall in the mid $30,000 range, which is not too shabby.
