The General Motors design team decided that the CTS-V just didn’t look good enough… so they fixed it. The result is a more sinister looking CTS-V than usual, poised to eat other cars on the road, sashimi-style.
Dubbed the CTS-V Black Diamond Edition, this limited-edition trim package will be available for all CTS-V types (sedan, wagon and coupe) and features an exclusive Black Diamond paint (as the car’s name suggests). This fancy color is a tri-coat containing aluminum flakes captured in magnesium fluoride. While fancy, it also waves caution that owners should take extreme measures to see that this über metallic paint doesn’t get scratched, since chances are the local body shop won’t be able to fix it. Continuing with the black theme, the 556-horsepower sports coupe (or wagon, or sedan if you prefer) features Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels with yellow Brembo brake calipers for extra flair.
The interior is left mostly untouched, but features saffron accents in the microfiber suede 14-way Recaro seats and tasteful stitching all around the cabin.
This limited-edition machine of mean starts at $69,190 for the manual — up $4,850 from the standard-issue CTS-V — and $70,490 for the automatic.
