Cadillac’s luxury cred is well-established, and when it comes to performance, models like the 2024 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing state the case pretty clearly. Caddy’s motorsports history deserves recognition as well, and to that end, enthusiasts and collectors are offered the new 2024 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Mondrian Editions, a set of limited-run models packing some unique, motorsport-inspired content. Each CT4-V Blackwing Mondrian Edition also features a numbered serial plaque, and now, we’re taking a closer look at what the numbers on that plaque actually mean.
The numbered serial plaque on the new 2024 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Mondrian Editions consists of seven numbers separated by two dashes, as well as the Cadillac logo and some script that reads “Collectors Series.”
The serial number starts with a four, indicating that the Mondrian Edition models are the fourth Collector’s Edition models offered thus far. Following a dash, there’s a five, which is the CT4-V Blackwing Special Edition identifier number, followed by either a one or a six, depending on the transmission option selected. The Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is available with either the GM six-speed manual, as indicated by a six on the plaque, or the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, as indicated by a one on the plaque.
After a second dash, the final four numbers start with either a one, two, or three, depending on the specific Mondrian Edition model, with a one indicating the Arrival Edition, a two indicating the Impact Edition, and a three indicating the Elevation Edition. The final three numbers are the last three digits of the VIN, ranging between 001 and 066. A total of 66 units of each Mondrian Edition model (Arrival Edition, Impact Edition, and Elevation Edition) will be produced.
Further upgrades include unique paint, a sueded headliner and pillars, both Carbon Fiber aero packages, decals, a performance steering wheel, and more. All Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing models are equipped with the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, while the GM Alpha 2 platform provides the underpinnings. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
