The recently-announced Championship Editions of the Cadillac CTS-V and ATS-V celebrate Cadillac’s first-ever endurance racing Manufacturer’s Championship, secured in the first year of the brand’s return to the long-distance sport. And while Cadillac’s initial announcement contained some pretty rad photos of the cars on the track, we got to see the CTS-V Championship Edition in person at last week’s Los Angeles Auto Show, where we photographed it to bring it to you today.
The Championship Edition is no different from other third-gen CTS-Vs in that it has presence like few other vehicles do today. Even so, we could do without the various exterior elements unique to the special edition model… except for the red mirror caps – we tend to like those. We also like the red interior accents that are part of the Morello Red Package, which could also be optioned on non-V units of the CTS.
Check out the gallery of photos live from the LA Auto Show floor. And when you’re finished, feel free to check out more on the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V Championship Edition and its smaller brother, the 2018 ATS-V Championship Edition.
