This article is about the car that was cut from the final version of Midtown Madness 2. For the car that was featured in retail versions of the game, see Cadillac Eldorado.
The 1959 Cadillac Eldorado is a car that was originally intended to be included in Midtown Madness 2, but was cut from the game due to licensing issues, despite the newer Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe being included in both Midtown Madness 1 and 2. This vehicle can still be used with the help of the MM2 Revisited mod (V4 or later) or by downloading it as a separate .ar file from The Midtown Madness Archive  or Midtown Madness 2 eXtreme. Some voice clips based on it have been recorded but are also unused, but still remain in the mm2core.ar file and can still be enabled by modding the game (only if this car is installed as a separate add-on).
This car also makes an appearance as a playable and unlockable vehicle in Midtown Madness 3. The classic boat car that was supposed to be featured in MM2 was based on the standard Eldorado model, while the one in MM3 is based on the Eldorado Seville model.
This vehicle will be featured in an upcoming version of the infamous Steir mod.
HistoryEditThe 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 actually used in Midtown Madness 1 and Midtown Madness 2) and the Eldorado Sport Coupe. The early 2000s saw the demise of the Eldorado and in 2002, production ceased completely.
The classic boat car. Not very fast, but it is much heavier than it looks. A solid choice for any condition that needs some extra power for the win.

Classic MadnessEditIn HQTM Team's Classic Madness mod, the 1959 Eldorado replaces the default Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe. The new car has been given a highly-detailed model and "realistic" performance, so it is significantly slower than both of its older models. Also, it uses an entirely new set of colors:
