The special edition model gets a bespoke ebony interior with red contrast stitching, performance Recaro buckets, metal foot pedals, Midnight Sapele wood, a microfiber suede steering wheel and shift knob, a special dark-finished V grille, and satin graphite wheels with painted red calipers.
Prices start at $72,195, including the $995 destination charge and a $1,300 gas guzzler tax. Other exterior color options include Crystal White, Black Diamond, and Phantom Gray.

Cadillac Celebrates V-Series with 2015 CTS-V Coupe
Special Edition the last before next-generation models arrive next year
DETROIT – Cadillac today 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-horsepower (415kW) 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 Nürburgring 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 $72,195, including a $995 destination charge and $1,300 gas guzzler tax, and are available for immediate order. Exterior color options include Crystal White, Black Diamond ($995) and Phantom Gray. Buyers can opt for either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. A sunroof also is available ($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,” Ellinghaus said.
Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. Today Cadillac is growing globally, driven by an expanding product portfolio featuring dramatic design and technology.
