Liquorice Red Caddy CTS-V Rocks Liquid Metal Custom Wheels

Before Mercedes came knocking with their latest E63 S, Cadillac’s speedy CTS-V didn’t have much to fear from its rivals in terms of acceleration.

So what do you when you have that fast of a family car and a craving for custom wheels? Well, lucky for you, in this day and age, there are more options than you can fathom.

This deliciously red CTS-V is seen here posing on 20″ FF04 Liquid Metal wheels from HRE. They feature a five dual-spoke design and can also be ordered on 19″, if you prefer something more appropriate in size.

Customers can choose between 18 different finishes for the FF04s, which cost $625 (each) if you go for the 19″ model, or $675 if you splurge on the slightly larger 20″ ones.

Overall, you can argue that this CTS-V is rocking both style and substance. And if you mostly care about how quick it is in a straight line, know that its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 puts down 650 PS (640 HP) and 855 Nm (630 lb-ft) of torque, boosting the car from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in about 3.7 seconds.

    That car looks amazing! Sweet paint and details. Wow.

    So much better than the jellybean-shaped Tesla.

    The color is fabulous. The lipstick-on-a-pig rehashed 15 year old styling is not.
    The wheels are amazing. The lack of a comfortable interior is not.

    Is liquorice red though? I think not.

    • Zandit75

      Ummm what? You’ve never seen red liquorice?

      • fabri99

        Googled it and I’m pretty sure we don’t have that in Italy.

        • Zandit75

          Then I feel sorry for you!!

          • fabri99

            Oh well, I don’t even like liquorice… At least the black one!
