1930 Cadillac V-16

Today we have for you a gem from the Nethercutt museum, a 1930 Cadillac V-16 452a. It’s a priceless antique from their collection that packs smooth power and classic style. The car was built in total secrecy by Lawrence Fischer to surprise the public after the V-12. It’s got overhead valves while remaining extremely quiet, and prioritizes performance over speed. Jay compares this ride to getting into a Tesla after riding in gas cars. Check out the episode below to hear the other reasons why Jay is impressed with this classic piece of Americana. Enjoy.
