The Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing offer an enticing combination of track-worthy performance and Caddy-style luxury, but for the first 500 Cadillac Blackwing sedan customers, these four-doors also include a special gift.
Earlier this year, prior to the debut of the new Cadillac Blackwing sedans, GM Authority exclusively reported that the first 250 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing customers and the first 250 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing customers would receive a unique gift with their vehicle reservations. The gift was offered for reservations for the Collector’s Edition versions of the two vehicles, which also featured one of the first serial numbers, unique plaques attached to the vehicles, a certificate of authenticity, and a driving session at the Cadillac V-Performance Academy at the Spring Mountain Resort in Nevada.
At the time, it was unclear exactly what the special gift would be. Now, we know that the gift in question is a design sketch of the specific Cadillac Blackwing model purchased:
The gift is similar to that sent to Cadillac CT6-V buyers, as GM Authority covered previously.
To note, the official name of the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is V-Series Blackwing.
As a reminder, the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is equipped with the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed exclusively to the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, also mating to either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. Both vehicles ride on the GM Alpha 2 platform, with production taking place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Lansing, Michigan.
