Cadillac-themed hybrid ethanol chopper coming to LA Auto Show

Jim Taylor who is the chief from Cadillac seems to love his motorcycles, so it comes as no surprise to any of us that he has commissioned a Cadillac-themed chopper and will be bringing it to the LA Auto Show. If you thought that was great then you will be pleased to know that Cadillac has commissioned a second motorcycle from V20 and this will be a hybrid version which will run on ethanol.

How cool will that be a chopper running on corn fuel or pure electrons, and do not think for one moment that it will be slow as the bike will reach 60mph in just 4.5 seconds. This new venture seems to have the whole industry a little baffled as to why a motor company like Cadillac wants to venture into motorcycles and a Hybrid version at that.

For those of you who think that this is just a bit of PR and that it will not actually happen, head on over to the LA Auto Show when it kicks of later this year and you will be able to see the Cadillac-themed hybrid ethanol chopper with your own eyes.

It seems strange to me that Cadillac are working on a hybrid chopper, when they should concentrate more harder on better car and truck hybrids.
