It’s been nearly 15 years now since Cadillac launched its V-Series performance line with the original CTS-V sedan in 2004.
Soon, it will open a new chapter in the series – but before it does, the all-American luxury marque is sending off two of its current models with a pair of special editions.
The Pedestal Edition of the ATS-V coupe and CTS-V sedan look spectacular in a special shade of Bronze Sand Metallic, and come accented in black chrome, a carbon-fiber appearance package, dark-finish forged alloys, and red Brembo brake calipers.
Inside, the Recaro buckets along with other parts of the cabin are upholstered in jet-black semi-aniline leather with Light Wheat microsuede inserts, bronze-colored stitching, and more carbon-fiber trim. The Pedestal Editions also come equipped with the Performance Data Recorder and Rear Camera Mirror system (on the CTS-V).
The 2019 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe Pedestal Edition starts at $77,090, with the CTS-V version commanding a princely $102,590 (plus destination). Only 300 examples in total will be offered for sale in the US, Canada, and Middle East. So if you want to get your hands on one, you’d better act fast. Order books open at the beginning of the new month ahead.
Both models are slated to be discontinued in the near future, but that won’t spell the end of the V-Series. Cadillac’s in the process of rolling out the new CT6-V, which was previously announced as the CT6 V-Sport, and packs a twin-turbo V8 with 550 horsepower. That’s more than the ATS-V’s 464 hp but less than the CTS-V’s 640, and bodes well for the future of Cadillac’s performance line.
