You Thought The Cadillac CTS-V Couldn't Get Better...

Someone please hand me that towel over there, because I need to wipe my drool off the goddamn floor! GM recently announced its new styling for the CTS-V - the Black Diamond Edition. Now I'm a guy who has numerous reservations about American vehicles, yet I cannot contain my desire to have one of these in my garage.
Now before anyone judges my attraction to this seemingly inanimate object, let me make something abundantly clear. This CTS-V isn't something to be left out in the rain, or to be parked near shopping carts at the neighborhood grocery. Why? Well, I'll gladly tell you why.  The painting process uses something called SpectraFlair paint, which entails a process of three layers of paint and flakes of aluminum encapsulated in magnesium fluoride for a sparkling finish. Needless to say, you're an idiot if you scratch the paint because it will be literally impossible to seamlessly repair it.
Aside from the paint, the Black Diamond CTS-V is said (by GM themselves) to emulate a well-tailored tuxedo. Prices start at $69,190 for manual transmission models and $70,490 for the automatic, which is a pretty penny for most onlookers (myself obviously included), but well worth the money.

  1. Admittedly, if I had the kind of coin to drop on this, I probably wouldn't buy a car that I couldn't drive practically (with a scratch being near unfixable). But it's still a very, very sexy car.

  4. Ya you park this near my shopping cart and I'll unleash an epic thrashing on that ride!
    Dont get me wrong, that is a very nice ride. Thats why if you park it near me, I'm gonna make that paint look like you just picked up your ride from the wreckers. When you ride by in your "Black Diamond", you'll hear the street people yelling. "He,he, Who dis? You betta not stop HO! or I'll bust your ass and make you eat that tuxedo!"

  11. I knew for a fact that the Cadillac CTS could not possibly get better. This is a CTS-V though. Totally different, and far higher potential.

  13. I think it's a Hot Wheels/Matchbox thing.
    If you grew up playing with Hot Wheels, Cadillacs look okay. If you grew up with Matchbox cars, Caddies look like a bad joke.

    Flakes of aluminum encapsulated in magnesium fluoride? Awesome!
