Cadillac’s successful motorsport season in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is a cause for celebration and the brand has three special cars to do just that. Cadillac revealed the ATS-V and CTS-V Championship editions on Thursday to celebrate its Manufacturer’s Championship with its new racer, the DPi-V.R.
Overall, the special edition cars are a bit underwhelming for such a banner motorsport year. Nonetheless, they feature a few cool nods to the brand’s motorsport division. Both the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V and 2018 Cadillac ATS-V Championship editions will be available in Black Raven or Crystal White Tricoat. Cadillac V-Performance graphics don the hood and rear spoiler, while a DPi-V.R graphics embellish the quarter windows. CTS-Vs receive 19-inch wheels, while ATS-Vs sport 18-inch wheels. Finally, red mirror caps complete the championship look.
Inside, red accents wash over the CTS-V and ATS-V Championship editions. Red front and rear door armrests, and red-accented carbon-fiber interior trim are the main draws. Drivers and passengers will plop into a set of Jet Black Recaro racing seats.
We wish Cadillac would have done something a smidge more exciting, but the Championship editions at least jazz things up appropriately. Prepare to pay for a special car, however. The Cadillac ATS-V Championship edition sedan will cost $72,190 and coupe starts at $74,390. The CTS-V Championship edition commands $105,730. The luxury brand will build just 200 examples in total between all three variations.
