The first is true. GTO's have there own agressive look. The split grill and twin hood scoop on the 1970 is agressive. However, the split grill and same twin hood scoops on the 1968/69 appears rather sexy and less agressive!

As for the Vin Diesel... my wife keeps bugging me about doing crunches and push-ups at night!

GTOlover, if you drive a GTO an approaching Cadillac should hold no terrors for you.  It would also help if you look like Vin Diesel...   :)

But not the primary headlight

The white LEDs described are for the running lights, but no LEDs comprise the primary headlights.  I'm surprised they did't go all the way.

Image 4 would suggest you're correct about the aggressive look, GTOlover. It looks aggressive, almost nasty, to me.

@GTlover – I too think the manufactures try to give a wicked look to the car for the lighting design. The LED lighting with the Angel lights will definitely make is look wicked.

Agressive look?

 "when this car comes up behind you", so Cadillac is admitting that their drivers tend to drive up onto people (which implies speeding). The agressive look is supposed to frighten me so I have to yield to the Cadillac elitists? I am probably being over-sensitive, but being a driver of older cars, I tend to gravitate to classic looks.

On the other hand, KITT had a cool LED 'eye' on its hood that was wicked cylon like! So the agressive look is nothing new!

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
