Limited-Edition 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Marks End of Current Production

  • Cadillac reveals new special-edition CTS-V Coupe
  • Limited to 500 units; features luxurious updates inside and out
  • Special edition marks the end of production for the current CTS-V

A newly revealed special-edition model will mark the end of production for the current Cadillac CTS-V. That’s the latest from Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, which recently announced that the last 500 units of its 2015 CTS-V Coupe will offer luxurious trim inside and out.

On the outside, the limited-edition run of Cadillac’s last 500 CTS-V Coupes will be easily distinguished from standard models thanks to a unique dark grille treatment, satin-finished wheels and red brake calipers. Additionally, shoppers will be able to match those accessories with one of three exterior colors: Crystal White, Phantom Gray or the brand’s unique Diamond Black metallic paint finish.

Upgrades are even more substantial inside the limited-edition CTS-V Coupes. Each of the cars will feature metal pedals, black-trimmed Recaro seats with red stitching, and a suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Although options are limited, Cadillac says shoppers can add a sunroof and choose between 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmissions.

Under the hood, the last 500 CTS-V Coupes won’t see any changes — not that any upgrades are necessary. The sharply styled Cadillac already features a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that makes an enormous 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque, which propels it to a 0-to-60 time of around four seconds.

Cadillac says that each of the last 500 CTS-V Coupes will be produced this summer, which means they’ll arrive on dealer lots soon after. The automaker calls the special-edition models a “stepping stone” to the next-generation CTS-V, which has not yet been revealed. We expect to see photos of the upcoming CTS-V later this year, given that the car it’s based on — Cadillac’s newly redesigned CTS — went on sale in late 2013.

What it means to you: This limited-production model is your last chance to get your hands on the current Cadillac CTS-V before the new version makes its debut.
