Want the rights to the first production 2016 CTS-V? Too bad, some lucky and very wealthy Cadillac enthusiast has beat you to the punch, buying them up for $170,000 at at Barrett-Jackson’s ongoing Scottsdale 2015 auction. The first CTS-V has yet to roll off the assembly line at General Motors’ Lansing Grand River plant, but the writer of that three-figure check will be able to order the very first car to their liking, which will arrive to them with a letter of authenticity proving it’s the real deal.
The 2016 CTS-V just made its official debut earlier this work at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit with a 640 horsepower version of General Motors’ LT4 V8, an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. We’re expecting the car to be priced at around $80,000 when it goes on sale this summer, however all the proceeds from Barrett-Jackson’s sale, which commenced last night at 6:00 p.m., went to the College for Creative Studies.
