Cadillac sends off current CTS with two limited editions

Cadillac is expanding the color palette of the CTS.

Cadillac is sending off its current CTS range with two new limited edition models. Cadillac will unveil an all-new version of its popular CTS at next month's New York auto show.

Silver Frost

The first of the two limited edition models is called 'Silver Frost' and will be limited to just 100 units of the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe.

The limited edition CTS-V Coupe is finished in a unique Silver Frost matte paint, which Cadillac achieved by reducing the car's typical "80-gloss” clear coat to just "30-gloss.” Because of that method, Cadillac says the Silver Frost CTS-V Coupe will still "sparkle” in certain lighting conditions, but maintains a distinctly matte finish.

Cadillac says the matte finish is just as durable as normal paint, but will require hand washing only.

In addition to the unique paint job, the Silver Frost edition also includes yellow or red-painted brake calipers, high polished or satin graphite wheels, suede-covered steering wheel and shift knob and, of course, a 556 horsepower supercharged V8 engine.

Stealth Blue

Continuing its color-themed special editions, Cadillac will also offer a Stealth Blue package for CTS Coupe and all CTS-V models beginning in March.

As the name implies, the limited edition CTS models will be finished in a unique Stealth Blue color, while CTS coupe, V Coupe and Sedan models will also offer an optional "Twilight Blue” leather interior package.

Other package perks include satin graphite wheels with silver calipers, dark finish grille and Recaro performance seats.

"Some color hues, such as blues, greys and reds easily identify with performance and velocity,” said Michelle Killen, lead creative designer for exterior paints. "Both Stealth Blue and Silver Frost are very expressive but still true to the luxury and exclusivity that a Cadillac represents, which was a driving factor in the creation of the color.”

Cadillac has yet to release pricing for either package.
