The official Cadillac website has gone live with the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V configurator, including prices for each and every option to be outfitted. Now, you can spend your pseudo-dollars on your perfect 2016 CTS-V, and even teeter with the idea of taking a second-mortgage. Or, maybe you’ve been better at saving your pennies than we have.
Cadillac lists the 2016 CTS-V sedan starting at $85,990, but there are plenty of options to see that number rise like mercury in a thermometer on a hot summer day.
Crystal White Tricoat and Red Obsession Tintcoat will tack an extra $500 on, should you choose either premium paint hue, and two extra wheel choices, finished in After Midnight premium finish, will run you another $900. Ah, but then the real options sheet opens up and scares our checkbooks.
Stepping into the luxury package means another $1,600, and includes tri-zone climate control, a power-rear sunshade and more. The carbon-fiber package will have you coughing up an extra $5,500, which handles much of the 2016 CTS-V’s track-pack goodies such as the carbon-fiber spoiler, hood vent, rear diffuser and more.
All in all, building our perfect, no frills 2016 Cadillac CTS-V totaled up to $100,530 before taxes, title and fees. That figure includes the Recaro sport seats, red-Brembo brake calipers, the Performance Data Recorder system and the UltraView sunroof. And no, there’s still no manual option. Eight automatic speeds of fury will be the only thing shifting the super saloon this time.
But, if we look at value, $85,990 gets you General Motors’ fastest production car currently available. And you can brag to all of your Corvette friends about that nugget of information.
