Cadillac has revealed a new concept car that is designed to give drivers a sleek, futuristic feel and technological conveniences, Crave reports.

The company''s XTS Platinum concept design, which was unveiled at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, can run on either a plug-in hybrid or 350 horsepower, V6 engine, according to the media outlet.

In addition to an electronic control panel and touch-screen displays, the vehicle''s interior features cream leather, dark wood grains and chrome air vents, according to Urban Network.

LCD screens are also installed in the backs of the driver''s and passenger''s seats to keep backseat riders entertained.

Christine Park, an interior designer for the automobile manufacturer, told the news source the car''s design was inspired by an orchid.

Like the exotic flower, it is "elegant, beautiful and luxur[ious]" without any "unnecessary detail that bother and distract the eye."

In alignment with the brand''s philosophy, "Art and Science," designers wanted to ensure that the car looked "futuristic but not unachievable," said Ed Welburn, vice president of global design for General Motors, Cadillac''s parent company.
