Do you like to learn more about early Cadillac and antique cars? Cadillac, a subsidiary of General Motors, has produced several models with a range of engines from 1902 to the present day to establish itself as the first luxury car in the United States.
As General Motors purchased the company in 1909, it was already one of the leading luxury carmakers in the USA. The entire interchangeability of its precision parts had made it possible to lay the foundations of modern automotive mass production. It has led to technical development with the introduction of full electrical systems, the demanding manual transmission, and the steel roof. With its V8 that is the standard for America’s car industry, the company has produced three engines.
Cadillac became the first US car to win the UK’s Dewar Trophy Royal Automobile Club by successfully demonstrating the interchangeability of its component parts during a 1908 reliability test; this inspired the company’s slogan “Best of the World.” In 1912 it again received the award for integrating electrical starting and lighting into a production car.
