Several years later, it comes with Cadillac which introduced at Detroit Auto show. This model bring stunning Cien concept including great mid-engine. The mid-engine is installed between the Cien’s axels, behind the passenger. It brings a 7.5-liter V12 which can produce power until 750 horsepower. Though, this vehicle was not for Chevy branded, most of us expect that the manufacturer will bring something bigger than this.
Two years later, the manufacturer offered Corvette with limit of grip including traditional front engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. The design machine is similar and equal with the Cadillac XLR and put the engine in the middle. Unfortunately, in 2018 the projects were stopped.
