Cadillac announced that 2002 would be its last year of the Eldorado, so Cadillac built only 1596 Eldorado's to commemorate the 1953 Cadillac Eldorado, which as many of you already may know was Cadillac's first year of the Eldorado. You could only get them in 2 colors, which both were the original colors of the first Eldorado, you could get only 300 in Aztec Red, and 1296 in Alpine White. Every "Collector's Series" came out of the factory with every option offered for the ETC Eldorado. The Eldorado Collector's Series had numerous details that set it apart from a normal ETC. The interior in the Aztec Red ECS came in black with red accents that really spiced it up, and the Alpine White ECS came with a 2 tone Grey interior. In the normal ETC, where the interior had wood grain, the ECS has carbon fiber which gives it a unique and sporty look. Then the most important detail, and which makes it a true Collector's Series is, the dash plaque displaying what consecutive vehicle it is, if it doesn't have that plaque then its not a real ECS. On the exterior, the paint scheme didn't stray to far from a stock ETC, but again the Aztec red in particular gave the car a very unique look, there is no chrome and everything is painted on both the Aztec Red and Alpine White. The ECS still sports ETC badges on the exterior, which hides it's differences a little more. The rims are a 7 spoke, 16 inch chrome model which was designed specifically for this model, it may look similar to some Eldorado's but they aren't the same. The suspension isn't too much different then the ETC, it includes Speed sensitive steering and Stabili-Trac but it does have a lower stance than your run of the mill Eldorado, giving it a much more aggressive and sporty look. Now, on to the drivetrain, The Eldorado has been spiced up a little for the ECS. The first most notable change is the exhaust system, it is a stainless dual exhaust not too much different from the stock ETC, until you turn the key. It has an unmistakable rumble that will have anyone who gets behind the wheel itching to hit the gas a little harder. The rumble of it's exhaust was designed to purposely echo the rumble of a big block 1953 Eldorado, and they did a pretty good job of it. It also brings the horsepower up 25 horses, ECS Cadillac has a total of 325 BHP. There have been rumors that the ECS has a performance chip installed to increase top speed, although it has not been confirmed by GM. The ECS tops out at a unbelievable 155 MPH.
