Caddy just revealed its latest and greatest track-ready luxury sedans, pulling the covers on the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing in a livestream debut event. Initial reservations on offer for both vehicles is capped at 250 units, and although the initial reservations for the CT5-V Blackwing are already spoken for, reservations for the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing are still available as of this writing.
Each Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing reservation requires a refundable $1,000 deposit. Customers who secure one of the initial 250 units will receive one of the first vehicle serial numbers, a certificate of authenticity, and a high-performance steering wheel that includes a serialized plate marked with the final five-digit portion of that particular vehicle’s unique VIN.
Additionally, initial reservations also include a complimentary two-day experience at the Cadillac V-Series Academy driving school at the Spring Mountain Motor Resort in Pahrump, Nevada.
The Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing sits at the top of the CT4 line with a variety of go-faster upgrades, starting with a revised exterior highlighted by new aero enhancements, such as a prominent front splitter, rear spoiler, and underbody panels.
Carbon fiber trim is used extensively in the cabin, with three interior levels to choose from for a variety of unique features and tech options. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.
Providing motivation is the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4, the same gas engine previously featured in the Cadillac ATS-V. Output in the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, all of which is harnessed by a Tremec six-speed manual transmission. A 10-speed automatic is also offered. The sprint to 60 mph takes 3.8 seconds, with top speed rated at 189 mph.
Final touches include upsized Brembo brakes and Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension tech.
Pricing starts at $59,990, with the first deliveries expected this summer.
UPDATE: All 500 of the initial Cadillac Blackwing reservations are now full. Interested customers will now be placed on a wait list for general ordering. Cadillac has yet to announce 2022 model year production volumes for the new Blackwing sedans.
