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.
