Future collectible cars unveiled at Pebble Beach

Not all the cars at the annual gathering are decades old. Automakers are also out to attract new customers.

Cadillac Elmiraj

Cadillac is working on a new ultra-large flagship car. To that end, GM's (GM) luxury brand last year unveiled the boat-sized Ciel convertible at Pebble Beach. This year, the idea takes a giant step closer to a production model with the Elmiraj two-door hard-top car.

Over 17 feet in length, the Elmiraj is slightly longer than Cadillac's current big car, the four-door front--drive XTS. Besides being bigger, it's also more performance oriented. The Elmiraj is rear-wheel-drive, which makes for enjoyable handling, and it's got a 500 horsepower twin-turbo V8.
