Cadillac CTS-V Black Diamond Edition

Cadillac launched the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Black Diamond Edition, aimed to be established in the market as a performance-minded line of vehicles with a luxury twist and available in Wagon models, Coupe and CTS-V sedan. A dark tri-coat embedded with SpectralFlair bright Silver pigment, using aluminum flakes encapsulated in a glass-like substance called magnesium fluoride, was applied for the CTS-V Black Diamond. The result is a paint similar to a diamond-like sparkle when light hits the surface of the luxurious vehicle from different angles.
Michelle Killen, Cadillac exterior paint designer stated that the CTS-V Black Edition was a finely tailored and crafted tuxedo, with a simple black base color, but special for its richness in details and materials. This color provides the discerning Cadillac customer a particular option that manages to remain faithful to their sense of style and luxury. Apart from the unique paint, this special edition further integrates Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels, Recaro seats with 14 adjustable elements and Midnight Sapele wood, whicih is well-known for its distinctive grain and durability.
It will be available at U.S. dealerships in March and comes with a retail price that includes destination charges, of $69,190 for the manual or $70,490 for the automatic.
