Article by Christian A., on May 12, 2014

Just as we told you in this article, Cadillac unveiled today a special edition of the 2015 CTS-V Coupe. For those who don’t know, the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe made its debut back in 2010 the new special edition marks the five-year run of the current model. Cadillac will only build 500 limited-edition cars during the second half of 2014.

Each unit will feature Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and 556-horsepower (415kW) supercharged V8 engine. The 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Special Edition comes with a new Ebony interior with red contrast stitching, Recaro performance seats, metal pedals, Midnight Sapele wood trim, microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The exterior features a dark-finish V grille, satin graphite wheels and red brake calipers. Pricing for the special edition 2015 CTS-V Coupe starts at $72,195, including a $995 destination charge and $1,300 gas guzzler tax.

If you want even more, Cadillac offers a sunroof for $700 and a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Exterior color options include Crystal White, Black Diamond ($995) and Phantom Gray. The company also announced that the next-generation V-Series models are currently in development and will be unveiled next year.

Cadillac’s CTS-V Coupe has a design meant to be a distinct visual expression of the mechanical preciseness and performance ability of the vehicle.

The CTS-V Coupe has a wheelbase identical to what’s found in the CTS-V Sport Sedan, but its total height is almost two inches (51 mm) less, and its total length is two inches (51 mm) smaller. The two models only share their instrument panels, consoles, headlights, front fenders, and grilles.

Key features are:

• Classic hardtop style, with no typical B-pillar

• Touch-pad door operations takes away any need for standard handles in the doors

• Faster windscreen angle (62.3 degrees) and an almost lateral back glass allow a streamlined silhouette

• Trademark upright lighting, accented with LED pipes

• Trademark centre high-mounted stop light acts as a rear spoiler

• Streamlined roof antenna for OnStar and XM Satellite Radio

Supercharged powertrain

The CTS-V Coupe uses a LSA 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that also appeared on the CTS-V Sport Sedan. Clocked at 556 hp (415 kW) and with 551 lb.-ft. torque (747 Nm), it is the most commanding engine available in the history of Cadillac and it thrusts the CTS-V Coupe from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
