When Entourage’s Vincent, Eric, Johnny Drama, Turtle and Ari hit the big screen June 3, they’ll be rolling in a new set of wheels.
Looking to switch things up for their big feature film debut, the gang has traded in their 1965 Lincoln Continental convertible, driven by Drama in the TV series, for the Cadillac Ciel, another hot four-seat convertible that’s bound to have even more people dreaming of being a part of Vinnie’s Hollywood crew.
It’s one helluva brand tie-in, and a pretty sexy one at that…
The Ciel (pronounced C-L) was unveiled in 2011 at the exclusive Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance car show in California as a breathtaking concept displaying Cadillac’s new design language and a celebration of open-air motoring.
Many were hoping that Cadillac would build a production model of the Ciel. But considering that it’s been nearly four years since the debut of the concept, it’s now pretty clear that the new flick—plus a promotional short in which Ari is lured out of retirement—is probably the closest most we’ll ever come to seeing this car on the streets.
The ultimate luxury convertible for taking in California’s scenic Highway 1 at sunset, the Cadillac is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with a hybrid system that uses lithium-ion battery technology.
The Ciel, which means sky in French, was developed at General Motors’ North Hollywood design studio and features rear hinged back doors, unique fender lines that run from the nose to the tail of the car, and nickel-plated bright work that accents the body lines.
The interior of the Cadillac, which is as striking as the exterior design, is detailed with nickel-plated trim, Italian Olive wood and machined aluminum and hand-tipped leather.
In addition to in-car Bluetooth, the Ciel’s tech features include hidden connectivity portals for each passenger that enables them to make dinner reservations, check the weather or even upload photos of the journey via social media platforms. The car has also been designed with a few special features to accommodate celebrity necessities, including a drawer for sun lotion, sun glasses and towels, and aromatherapy that is controlled from the rear armrest.
Other exterior features on the Ciel include a shield grille, wheels finished with brushed nickel plating over milled billet aluminum and special LED lighting.
Cadillac spared no expense with this beauty, and considering there were reportedly 2,500 ’65 Continental convertibles made and only one Ciel, it certainly seems worthy of its starring role.
