Before we knew its Cadillac’s V-Series sub-brand is already celebrating its 15 years of existence. To give this ultra-high-performance luxury sub-brand a fitting celebration, Cadillac is introducing limited run models to be dubbed as the 2019 Cadillac V-Series Pedestal Editions.
The 2019 Pedestal Edition will be applicable for the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe and the 2019 Cadillac CTS-V Super Sedan. Aside from celebrating the successful 15 years of the Cadillac V-Series sub brand, the 2019 Pedestal Edition serves as a grand farewell to the third generation of the V-Series. Soon enough, the fourth generation of the Cadillac V-Series would arrive, heralding a new era of luxury high-performance at Cadillac.
The Pedestal Editions of the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe and CTS-V Super Sedan are distinguished from their regular counterparts through a number of aesthetic modifications. These include a commemorative application of Bronze Sand Metallic exterior color, Black Chrome trim and Black Chrome grille surround.
Pedestal Editions of the 2019 ATS-V Coupe and CTS-V Super Sedan ride on V-Series forged light-alloy wheels in After Midnight finish, as complemented by massive red Brembo brake calipers. Further highlighting the exterior of the Pedestal Editions of the 2019 ATS-V Coupe and CTS-V Super Sedan is the Carbon Fiber Package, which include a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber hood vent, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and a carbon fiber rear diffuser.
Inside, the Pedestal Editions of the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe and CTS-V Super Sedan is marked by RECARO race-inspired sport seats wrapped in Jet Black semi-aniline leather and new Light Wheat micro-suede inserts. These Pedestal Edition models also feature carbon fiber interior trim with bronze threading.

The Rear Camera Mirror is also included but only for the Pedestal Edition of the CTS-V Super Sedan.
