The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V sedan will be getting a new paint job that will give it a unique icy feel. Dubbed the Glacier Metallic Edition, this special model was built in celebration of Cadillac’s 115-year history. That’s why only 115 examples will be built. When looking at this high performance four-door sedan with its cool light grey exterior, you will be reminded of an overcast winter afternoon.
Moving into the mechanical bits, the limited-edition CTS-V will have the same set up as the standard models. This means that it will still be getting the 6.2 liter V8 that produces 640 horsepower (477 kilowatts) and 630 pound-feet (855 Newton metres) of torque, that will work hand in hand with an eight-speed automatic gearbox giving power to the rear wheels.
As expected, the CTS-V Glacier Edition will be quite expensive, with an asking price of $103,885 including destination. For comparison’s sake, the standard version of the sedan starts at $87,990 - that is an additional $15,895 for the special edition model.
This might actually be more affordable than having your sedan modified by a tuner. By September, the company plans to deliver 105 examples of the Glacier Edition, while the last ten examples will arrive at a later time. Customers will also benefit from a two-day training opportunity at Cadillac’s V-Performance Academy.
