Cadillac is ending the life of the current CTS-V with a final farewell in the form of a limited production special edition.
Simply known as the CTS-V Coupe Special Edition, only 500 of these cars will be produced for the 2015 model year before the next generation of V-Series models are unveiled next year.
Like all other CTS-V Coupe models, the special edition will consist of Cadillac’s magnetic ride control suspension, Brembo brakes and a supercharged V8 that makes 556 hp and 551 lb-ft of torque. The engine can be paired to a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
To separate it from the herd, this special edition car receives an ebony interior with red contrast stitching, Recaro performance seats, metal pedals, wood trim, a microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dark-finish V grille, satin graphite wheels and red brake calipers. Options include a sunroof and a choice between a white, black or gray exterior paint job.
“The special edition is a stepping stone to the next-generation V-Series, which will move to the next level with more dynamic design and technical sophistication,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer for global Cadillac.
Pricing will be announced closer to the cars on-sale date.
