In one fell swoop, Cadillac introduced the CT5-V Blackwing 120th Anniversary Edition 2023 and auctioned the first model for $ 250,000, which would be equal to about 230,822 euros current at the change.
The lucky model to receive this amount of money was precisely a limited-edition CT5-V Blackwing that features a handful of special touches to commemorate Cadillac’s 120th anniversary.
It’s a special edition
Importantly, production is limited to 120 units and each model pays homage to a year of Cadillac’s existence. The auction car was the 1902 edition and features commemorative plaques on the thresholds, a special badge on the steering wheel, and a “B-pillar builders’ plaque.” However, one of the best improvements is a special gear lever medallion that is reserved for cars equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. Buyers will also receive a certificate of authenticity and a driving experience from Spring Mountain V-Performance Academy.
More details of its external appearance
To be more specific, from the front of this car you can see certain lines that define it as one of the most attractive cars of this year, since it presents elegant but at the same time aggressive lines. The hood as such is long and wide at the same time, and shows descending lines that culminate and are paired right on the central grille and in the set of optics; By the way, the lights of this car feature the latest in lighting technology, so daytime running lights and powerful headlights for dark areas or night feature advanced LED technology. The grille of the car is black and in grid model, with the slogan of the manufacturer right in the center. On the sides of the bumper we have air inlets that go right to the engine and help keep it cool while it is in motion. There is a third air intake in the lower central area, which is also in the grille and helps to keep the power unit cool.
On the sides of the car we have silver alloy wheels or wheels, which at the same time hide red brake calipers and powerful discs on each of its wheels. There is a black detail in the lowest area of the doors. The door locks come in the same body color, while the mirror housings are combined with the black color.
What you bring under your hood
While the changes are minor, the CT5-V Blackwing was already close to perfection, as it features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 668 horsepower (498 kW/677 PS) and 659 lb-ft (893 lb-ft) of torque. These motor qualities allow the sports sedan to shoot from 0 to one hundred kilometers per hour in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 200 mph or what would be similar to about 322 kilometers per hour.
Other important technical details
In addition to the all-powerful engine, the Blackwing features an electronic limited-slip rear differential and a sporty suspension with Magnetic Ride Control. The model also features a crash tower booster, a high-performance brake system and an aggressive exterior with a front splitter, extended side skirts and a rear spoiler.
The possible price of the car
Cadillac did not say how much the 2023 CT5-V Blackwing 120th Anniversary Edition will cost, but the 2022 model starts at $83,995 before a $995 destination charge.
