Cadillac Die Valkyrie
The ‘50s were times of outlandish designs and crazy concepts. And, even though the GM design department had some wild cars, one of the strangest, most interesting Cadillac prototypes came from Europe. Cadillac named it the Die Valkyrie, presenting it in 1956 on the show circuit, mostly around Europe.
This car was a fully functional model, designed by the famous American designer, Brooks Stevens. However, it was built by the Spohn body shop in Germany. Initially, they aimed the car at wealthy customers who could afford the extreme prices of a coach-built Cadillac manufactured by the highest standards. However, production never started and they only built a few cars, leaving this extraordinary Cadillac in the forgotten corridors of time.
