Cadillac celebrates V-series with limited/special edition 2015 CTS-V Coupe

Cadillac announced production of a limited, special-edition 2015 CTS-V Coupe, marking the last chapter of the current model before the next generation of the V-series debuts next year.

The 2015 CTS-V Coupe will consist of 500 limited-edition cars available during the
second half of 2014.

"The V-series continues to elevate Cadillac, providing an exclusive family of high-performance luxury models that attract a new audience of elite and passionate buyers, said Uwe Ellinghaus, Chief Marketing Officer, Global Cadillac.

The special edition CTS-V Coupe shares the high-performance technology of its predecessors built from 2010-2014 - including Cadillac's Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and 556 hp (415 kw) supercharged V-8 engine. 

The CTS-V Coupe is the most dramatic model in the V-series range of high-performance luxury models, blending a personal 2+2 layout with a drivetrain vetted on Germany's famed Nurburgring track.

The 2015 special edition version features an exclusive Ebony interior with red contrast stitching, Recaro performance seats, metal pedals, Midnight Sapele wood trim, microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dark-finish V-grille, satin graphite wheels and red brake calipers.

The 500 special-edition CTS-V Coupes will be produced this summer. Pricing begins at US$ 72,195, including a US$ 995 destination charge and US$ 1,300 gas guzzler tax, and are available for immediate order. Exterior color options include crystal white, black diamond (US$ 995) and phantom gray. Buyers can opt for either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. A sunroof also is available (US$ 700).

The next-generation V-series models are in development and will premiere next year.

"The special edition is a stepping stone to the next-generation V-series, which will move to the next level with more dynamic design and technical sophistication," Ellinghau further added.
