Cadillac Eldorado

The Cadillac Eldorado in MM2

This article is about the car that featured in retail versions of MM2. For the car that was cut from the final version of the game, see 1959 Cadillac Eldorado.

The Cadillac Eldorado is a standard car unlocked from the very first time you play Midtown Madness 2 and the original Midtown Madness. The car is well balanced and is useful in many situations. In HQTM Team's Classic Madness, it is replaced by the '59 Cadillac Eldorado (a custom model that is higher in quality than the one originally planned to be featured final version of the game by Angel Studios).

HistoryEdit

2002 Cadillac Eldorado ETC

A real Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe

The first Cadillac Eldorado started out in 1953, as a low-production convertible model. It recieved a minor facelift in 1955, and given hardtop models, but the main update was in 1959, when the car underwent a massive redesign. The resulting product was the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado, one of the most iconic cars of its time and the most famous Cadillac ever built. 1966 saw the next redesign, turning it from an extravegant luxury land-yacht to a powerful muscle car. 1971's model returned to the luxury limousine idealogy, before in 1979, it was made into a more affordable machine. In 1986, the car's edges were rounded to give it a more modern look, before 1992, when it underwent its final redesign. Performance models of this eighth-generation model were sold as the Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe (which is the model used in Midtown Madness 2) and the Eldorado Sport Coupe. The early 2000s saw the demise of the Eldorado and in 2002, production ceased completely.

Trivia Edit

  • In Midtown Madness 2, the Eldorado has new sounds. However, the older sounds from the first game can still be used by modding the game.
  • The Eldorado will begin to produce smoke when it becomes slightly damaged, which is unusual in comparison to the other cars which normally produce smoke when they become heavily damaged.
  • In the original Midtown Madness, the Eldorado was front wheel drive, instead of rear wheel drive. Fortunately this tuning error was fixed in Midtown Madness 2; however the same mistake was made with the Panoz Roadster, the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage, the Audi TT, and the VW New Beetle RSi
  • In MM2 Revisited, the Eldorado is given a new color, based on the vehicle showcase picture. This color was named Chrome Yellow, and the original color was renamed to Gold.
  • The brakes are very strong on the rear, which causes the car to slide.
  • The Red Rocket uses the same dashboard as the Eldorado. The main difference is that the Red Rocket's dashboard was edited, as the original woodgrain trim was replaced with bright red plastic.
  • Chrome yellow is actually a color that was available for the Ford Mustang GT.
