The all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS is one extremely good looking car, but the existing model of CTS V-series cars are based on the last-generation CTS sedan and coupe. General Motors has revealed that the next CTS-V will arrive sometime next year and the test mule has been spied quite a few times this year, but in the meantime, the automaker has created a special edition model of the 2015 CTS-V Coupe that will have a limited run of 500 examples. Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing manager at Cadillac, said: “the V-Series continues to elevate Cadillac, providing an exclusive family of high-performance luxury models that attract a new audience of elite and passionate buyers.”
The 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe will come decked out with a dark grille treatment, satin-finish wheels, red brake calipers and an upgraded cabin. All the 500 units of the special edition will boast an exclusive Ebony interior with red contrasting stitching, Recaro bucket seats, metal on the pedals, Midnight Sapele wood trim, microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob for maximum grip. Customers will get an option between Black Diamond ($995), Crystal White and Phantom Grey exterior paint jobs, a sunroof ($700) and either a six-speed stick shift box or an automatic transmission. Under the hood, the 2015 CTS-V features a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that produces 556 horsepower, and will also come with Magnetic Ride Control and brakes by Brembo as standard. The pricing is yet to be announced but it will hit the showrooms by the middle of 2014.
