2011 CTS-V Black Diamond

I think we’ve posted up enough stuff now about Cadillac’s stellar CTS-V range to make your eyes fall out. We’ve only done so because we believe that the cars are really as good as we say they are – seriously, we frickin’ love these things. Personally I’d take mine as a silver CTS-V Wagon with the amazing Recaro seats, suede steering wheel, shift knob and rear differential cooler. Yep, that would suit me just fine. However for those of you who are looking for something a bit more understated, maybe even a bit Batman-ish, Cadillac has just the thing for you. This is the 2011 Black Diamond Edition and thankfully it’s available on all CTS-V models. The first and most obvious thing you’ll notice about the Black Diamond Edition is the paint. It’s a specially formulated dark tri-coat paint that is embedded with SpectraFlair Bright Silver pigment that gives the car a diamond like sparkle in changing light conditions.

“Auto makers and consumers are looking to differentiate the color black, an ubiquitous color in automotive,” said John Book, Custom Color Solutions product manager at JDSU. “Black Diamond offers the discerning Cadillac customer a special option color that stands out and remains true to their sense of luxury and style.”

These special edition cars also come clad with 19-inch satin graphite wheels with yellow Brembo calipers, 14-way adjustable Recaro seats that feature french-stitched leather and microfiber suede inserts and Midnight Sapele wood trim. All of these goodies round out a trim package that make the CTS-V Black Diamond Edition really stand out amongst the competition. The price for all of this blackness is $4,850 over the stand CTS-V’s base price. It will also be available at dealerships across the U.S. this coming March so make sure to place your orders now.

    I appreciate these cars and it’s a huge step in the right direction for US car makers, but in not a fan. I much prefer //M cars in all respects. The fact that the CTS turned in a better time at the Nurburgring means nothing to me.

    Bob – have you driven one of them yet? I’ve owned and driven A LOT of M cars and while the fit and finish would land in BMW’s court, the performance edge definitely goes to Cadillac in my opinion.

      I have not. I guess im just a Bimmer guy at heart. I think the oppertunity to drive the CTS sedan or the upcoming F10 M5 would paste permagrin on my face for days afterwards, I guess what Im saying is, a few tenths of a second 0-60, or 2.5 seconds faster around the track arent enough to get me to switch brands, and that seems to be a big part of their marketing ploy.

    I completely understand. Listen, BMW’s are amazing automobiles and no one can dispute that. Cars like the CTS-V series are hugely powerful and have a grin factor to them that I’ve yet to duplicate in a family sedan – be it a BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Audi. I would just say to drive both, the upcoming M5 and the CTS-V – whichever one makes you smile more is the one you should put your money down on. In the end that’s the real goal with cars like this isn’t it?

    I think you can’t debate personal preference. I feel you have evaluate each automobile on it’s own engineering, technical, and esthetic merits. BMW has it’s own unique character as does Mercedes Benz, Audi, Ferrari etc. I think GM has done an incredible job in creating a line of automobiles that add a compelling, competent, competitive in the same market space as BMW’s M Series, Mercedes Benz’s AMG’s, and Audi’s S Series. I intend to acknowledge and support GM/Cadillac by becoming the proud owner of a new 2011 CTS-V Sport Wagon before they sell out.

    No your talking. Got for the six-speed with optional rear differential cooler and recaro seats.
