Earlier this month, GM Authority spotted a nearly new Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing up for sale in Florida for an eye-widening $148,999. Now, that very same vehicle is up for sale with a $9,000 price drop, listed at $139,999.
Although some may find the price tag to be rather steep, this particular Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is quite nice. Offered by Wilde Lexus Sarasota in Sarasota, Florida, this four-door monster is finished in a searing shade of Blaze Orange Metallic paint, which matches well with the black accents and carbon fiber trim bits found front to back, including components of the Carbon Fiber Package 1 upgrade, which adds in a new splitter, well well deflectors, and a larger rear spoiler for the trunk. In the corners, we spot 19-inch alloy wheels, which continue the theme with a Satin Graphite Dark finish, plus high-performance summer-only tires with a multi-compound thread composition designed specifically for the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.
While aggressive on the outside, the interior of this Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing promises all the luxury and comfort one would expect. Highlights include Jet Black upholstery with Jet Black accents, as well as a premium sound system, satellite radio, navigation, heated and cooled driver’s seat, keyless entry, and a sunroof.
Of course, the big enchilada is found under the hood, where, like all examples of the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, this particular models is equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. Also found in the third-generation Cadillac CTS, C7-generation Chevy Corvette Z06, and Chevy Camaro ZL1, the LT4 is rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque when applied to the CT5-V Blackwing. This particular example also features a six-speed manual transmission, rather than the optional 10-speed automatic.
