Car Side Presentation
The 1930 Cadillac features the first year for their mighty 452 cubic-inch V-16 engine that produces 160 horsepower. This increase in power allowed for “enormous acceleration, unheard of hill climbing ability, and more speed than perhaps any man would care to use,” according to a 1930 Cadillac advertisement. Cadillac continued to use and refine the V-16 engine until 1940.
The 1930 Cadillac V-16 coupe was donated to the museum from the Guy E. Beatty, Jr. Private Collection.
