The General Motors Design team has released a series of new photos showing some additional interior details in the two Cadillac Blackwing sedans.
These photos focus on the various intricate, high-quality interior details of the Cadillac Blackwing sedans, like the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing‘s available carbon fiber accented racing seats, which feature prominently in the newly released gallery.
The optional lightweight seats build on the vehicle’s motorsports-inspired feel and feature exposed carbon backrests with silver V-Series logos, stitched leather upholstery with perforated leather accents, white piping and contrasting red and white stitching. The seats are optional on the CT5-V Blackwing and will not be offered on the smaller CT4-V Blackwing.
Another component that sets the Cadillac Blackwing interiors apart from regular Cadillac V-Series models and also features in this new photo set is the high-performance steering wheel. The wheel, which has carbon fiber accents, a serialized plaque and magnesium shift paddles, comes standard on the CT5-V Blackwing and is optional on the CT4-V Blackwing. The available steering wheel is also good for those who want to do track days or other high-performance driving events with the vehicle, as it provides quick access to the V-Mode button and Performance Traction Management Switch.
This gallery also gives us an up-close look at the ways GM designers mixed different materials in the Cadillac Blackwing interiors to achieve a high-end look. For example, the high-performance steering wheel features leather, thick contrasting stitching, carbon fiber trim and brushed aluminum trim, all butted up together within a fairly small space. The seats also use two different kinds of leather upholstery (stitched and perforated), three different stitch colors (black white and red) and two different trim types (gloss black plastic and carbon fiber). This unique blend of materials was put together by Nault West and Dominic Dowling, who are both color, material and finish designers (CMF) at GM Advanced Design.
