It’s been a while since Cadillac last had a big coupe in its range, but now the automaker has decided to show us what such a car would look like if it were to be built. Called the Elmiraj Concept ($TBA), the big coupe showcases “a new vision for luxury driving and the top of the brand’s expanding range,” according to Cadillac.
