Cadillac celebrates 115 years of exclusivity with a limited edition of the 2018 CTS-V featuring an exclusive new colour.

The special Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition is limited to 115 units painted smoky light grey, and features exterior cues such as illuminated door handles, red Brembo brake callipers and polished 19-inch forged alloy wheels. As well, carbon fibre trim work is evident on the front splitter, hood vet and rear spoiler and diffuser.

Power comes from the 640-hp supercharged direct injected 6.2-litre V-8 that sends 630 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic. Active fuel management keeps it fuel efficient by shutting down cylinders when they aren’t needed, while the Performance Traction Management allows the driver to tailor traction to surface composition and conditions

Inside, there is an industry–first Rear Camera Mirror, Jet Black RECARO sport seats, Performance Data Recorder, panoramic sunroof and the next-generation Cadillac infotainment system. Also part of the Luxury Package is tri-zone climate control, split folding rear seat, heated rear outboard seats, power rear window sunshade and manual rear side sunshades.
