Chicago 2011: Cadillac Goes to the Dark Side With CTS-V Black Diamond Edition

With all of the expensive metals already used for various trim levels, Cadillac’s switched to precious stones on its trip to the dark side to bring us the Black Diamond Edition CTS-Vs.

In addition to the “Black Diamond” paint job, Black Diamond Edition CTS-Vs get yellow brake calipers behind Satin Graphite wheels plus yellow suede inserts in their Recaro seats – a scheme seen in the CTS Coupe Concept – and dark Midnight Sapele wood trim.

The Black Diamond package costs $4850 and is available on all three versions of the CTS-V – coupe, sedan, and wagon – and will be available starting in March.
