Some Of The First 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Units Still Available In Dealers14
General Motors unveiled the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing on February 1st, 2021, pulling the sheets on the most track-capable production model to ever wear the Caddy crest. Offering a combination of Cadillac-branded luxury and cutting-edge performance, the CT5-V Blackwing is a highly desirable automobile, and now, GM Authority has located two of the initial 250 units still available at dealers.
The first of the two 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing models located by GM Authority is available at Classic Cadillac of Atlanta in Georgia, and is finished in Summit White paint, with a Jet Black interior and Jet Black cabin accents. The exterior includes the optional Carbon Fiber Package 1 and Carbon Fiber Package 2, which adds on composite bits for the front splitter, grille surround, rocker moldings and extensions, rear valence, and rear spoiler. Under the hood, the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine is rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, with output routed through an optional 10-speed automatic transmission (a six-speed manual is standard).
As one of the first 250 units of the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing ever produced, the car also includes a special high-performance steering wheel with a serialized plate etched with a five-digit portion of VIN. As GM Authority covered previously, the first 250 reservations were filled in just three minutes, and included a complimentary course at the Cadillac V-Series Academy in Pahrump, Nevada.
Pricing for this particular 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is set at $118,285.
Update: After the publication of this article, GM Authority has learned that this car is in fact not one of the 250 Collector Series units, but a customer order following the initial reservation period.
Another 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is on offer from Central Cadillac in Cleveland, Ohio, finished in Black Raven paint and featuring Natural Tan leather upholstery with Jet Black accents. Unlike the CT5-V Blackwing listed above, this second example is fitted with the standard six-speed manual transmission, rather than the optional 10-speed automatic. It also features 19-inch alloy wheels with a Tech Bronze finish, plus the special serialized performance steering wheel that’s standard with the first 250 units of the CT5-V Blackwing.
Pricing for this particular example is listed at $129,625, which includes a dealer markup of $35,000. This unit is one of the 250 Collector Series cars, but the buyer ultimately decided to back out of the purchase.
As a reminder, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is built on the GM Alpha 2 platform, with production taking place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Lansing, Michigan.

This Car is Still Beautiful! So Love Cadillac’s Looks’ For Years’ Cept’Their probly rounding off the front ends now’ to make way for the ‘Electric look. Personally’ Im the Sharper look fan’ of Any Vehicle _ Not the Melted look _ Areo’Shmerro_ Ya Still Gotta Look at It! 😶
If the first 250 reservations were filled in three minutes, why are there two found sitting unsold on dealers’ lots after a cursory review? Does gm count dealers as “buyers”? Thus when gm says something is “sold out”, does that really just mean their dealers have agreed to buy the allotted number of vehicles.
This is entirely correct and quite
common. A new car dealership here in Miami, Florida, a couple of years ago, had a 2019 Chevy Corvette Z06 in the showroom and this also had a D(Dealer)A(additional)V(Value) sticker addendum of $35,000
They’d be sold if GM didn’t actively have a Dealership sales model. I’d be pissed if I found out someone paid less than me, or laugh if someone paid 35k over MSRP.
It’s time GM migrates over to a Direct Sales model.
Go ahead sonic fan you know it’s happening greed is big out there
OK, I’ll say it: Bring back the Gen 3 Cadillac CTS-V.
Waaaay better looking than the CT5 V Blackwing.
Bring back Art & Science!
Did you get the memo? Art & Science is still around. It evolves each generation and still intact with the current products.
But keep in mind that the CT5 is not the CTS…
CT5 was not made as a successor to the CTS. It’s an ATS successor that’s a bit larger to satisfy the Chinese market.
oh yeah…whats the CT4 then?
Yes all these electric cars are looking like Tesla f Front ends
The other day, I looked at a brand-new matte-green CT5-V, Series #166, with a 10-speed automatic on the showroom floor at Caddy dealer in Boca Raton, Florida. The window sticker lists a ‘Dealer Fee’ of $50,000 making the total cost $164,500. I’ll be watching to see if they get their initial asking price.
I have #20, Electric Blue, 10 speed auto, many upgrades. great car, would not sell it even if offered 250k
