Cadillac is showing off a low-lying two-door coupe that likely is the prototype for the brand's re-entry into the big, elegant and expensive luxury car market.

The four-seat Elmiraj concept car, with steep angles at the corners, vertical LED headlamps and huge 22-inch wheels, was shown Thursday at a luxury car event in Carmel, Calif.

The car, about the length of an Audi A8 or Mercedes S-Class, is built on the underpinnings of a new full-size Cadillac sedan that is under development, said David Caldwell, a spokesman for GM. CEO Dan Akerson has said a new ultra-luxury rear-drive Cadillac will be introduced in the next two years.

The look of the Elmiraj could show up in the new sedan, and a coupe will be available as an option, Caldwell said.
