An all-new Cadillac CTS is just around the corner, but that’s not stopping Cadillac from tinkering with the outgoing second-generation model. Two new special-edition twists on the supercharged CTS-V are set to launch next month.
First up: the CTS-V Silver Frost. As the name implies, this model bathes the CTS-V’s angular sheetmetal in a matte silver paint (note: GM says it’s durable, but must be hand-washed). Cadillac’s only offering this paint package on the CTS-V coupe, and limiting total production to 100 cars. The Silver Frost treatment adds $4000 to the CTS-V coupe’s base price of $65,410, but the final vehicle price may vary slightly depending on the inclusion of other optional equipment.
Silver Frost cars are expected to arrive at dealers in early March – at that time, dealers will begin taking orders for the second limited-edition CTS-V. The Stealth Blue cars boast a unique periwinkle-esque hue that, unlike the Silver Frost paint, has a gloss metallic finish. If so desired, buyers can also add the unique “Twilight Blue” leather seating shown here.
The Stealth Blue package tacks on an extra $6200 to the $65,410 price tag of a CTS-V coupe, sedan or wagon. GM says the package is limited in volume, but a definite volume target has yet to be announced.
If you want the Stealth Blue color on a budget, the same package -- sans Twilight Blue leather accents – is also available on the standard CTS coupe. On these cars, the package adds $4400 to the CTS coupe’s base price of $30,905.
