Cadillac shocked the world with the second-generation CTS-V. In short, it was a 556 horsepower missile aimed at BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Jaguar, and the like. If it had four doors, chances are it was slower than the sueded sledgehammer out of Michigan. And then came the coupe and wagon variants, turning Cadillac’s supercharged spear into a trident, thereby changing the way people thought of performance luxury passenger cars.
But since the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS is set to preview this year, the end for four-year-old LSA-powered supercar family is nigh. Thankfully, the outgoing V is going out in style, as Cadillac has announced a duo of very-limited-edition Stealth Blue and Silver Frost variants.
First, the Stealth Blue Edition will be offered in all body styles — sedan, coupe, wagon, and even the standard CTS Coupe. The styling changes consist of a blacked-out grille with dark satin wheels, and an optional, and very sexy, Twilight Blue leather interior. Delicious.
For those who want a dash of more exclusivity, there’s the Silver Frost package. Available solely on the CTS-V Coupe, the paint is a low-gloss matte finish with the slightest of clearcoat layering. Only a hand-wash is recommended for this beauty, and only 100 of these CTS-V Coupes will be built.
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but we can expect a decent markup from the base CTS-V models when these appearance packages hit the market.
