Cadillac will be celebrating their 115th anniversary with a limited run (115 units) of a special edition V-Series model, the CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition.
Featuring its namesake paint color, the special edition will come with 19-inch wheels with a forged polished finish with Midnight Silver painted pockets. Inside the model will feature the Carbon Fiber and Luxury packages. These will bring carbon fiber hood vent, front splitter, rear spoiler, and rear diffuser in addition to luxury goodies like tri-zone climate control, heated rear outboard seating, power rear window sunshade and manual read side-window shades as well as the Cadillac Rear Camera mirror that debuted on the CT6 sedan.
From a performance angle, these CTS-Vs will also come with the RECARO performance seats, the performance data and video recorder, and red Brembo brake calipers. Additionally, these V-Series models, like all new V-Series Cadillacs, will come with a 2-day V-Performance Academy trip (includes tuition and accommodations) at Spring Mountain\ – you know, to improve the most important part in any performance car…the driver.
The 115 cars will all be built during 2017 as 2018 model year..and started showing up at dealers in September.
If you feel like you really need one of these, and have the $103,885 to pick one up – give your local dealer a call.

Introducing the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition
Cadillac Celebrates 115 Years with Exclusive New COLOR on THE CTS-V Super Sedan
Cadillac today announced the exclusive 2018 Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition, painted a smoky light gray that celebrates Cadillac’s 115-year history. The Edition will be limited to 115 CTS-V super sedans produced in 2017 for model year 2018.
Accenting the anniversary color are standard illuminated door handles, dark red Brembo® brake calipers and 19-inch forged polish-finished alloy wheels with Midnight Silver painted pockets, creating a unique look for Cadillac’s ultimate driver’s car.
The interior features Jet Black RECARO® race-inspired sport seats, the Performance Data Recorder system featuring COSWORTH Toolbox analysis software, UltraView sunroof, the industry–first Rear Camera Mirror and the next-generation Cadillac user experience infotainment system.
The Cadillac CTS-V super sedan is powered by a supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine SAE certified at 640 horsepower (477 kW) and 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm). It employs an efficient, compact supercharger matched with direct injection and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation). Power is transferred exclusively to the rear wheels through an 8-speed sport automatic transmission with Performance Algorithm Shifting. The highly advanced Performance Traction Management system, developed through a two-year engineering embed with Cadillac Racing in Pirelli World Challenge, adds five track-oriented modes (from Wet to Race) plus Launch Control to ensure the most powerful Cadillac ever sold can adapt perfectly to track conditions and driver comfort level.
All new Cadillac V-Series models include tuition and accommodation at the 2-day Cadillac V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain (offer valid for 1 year, reserved for the original owner of each new, unused model year 2017 and newer Cadillac ATS-V and CTS-V models).
The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition is available for $103,885 including destination freight charges but excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees. The U.S. production run for the CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition begins this month, and 105 of the 115 vehicles produced will be immediately available through U.S. Cadillac dealers.
