The complete Cadillac V Series history

Motoring Research Logo By John Redfern of Motoring Research | Slide 2 of 33: Cadillac’s recent motorsport exploits, including a second-place finish in the 2021 Daytona 24 Hours, are familiar to fans. But the brand has a racing legacy that stretches back much further. Cadillac competed at the 1950 Le Mans 24 Hour race with two cars. The radical streamlined ‘Le Monstre’, raced alongside a completely stock Series 61 coupe. It would be the conventional Caddy that would finish 10th, averaging 81.5 mph over 24 hours. The company would target Le Mans again at the turn of the century, using the Northstar LMP prototype. A dedicated focus on the Daytona 24 Hours would soon follow.
