Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing

Considering the fact that I drove them back in 2021, I’ve spent a lot of time configuring Cadillac CT5-V Blackwings and CT4-V Blackwings on the Cadillac web-site. Just after the restricted production “Dark Emerald Frost” automobiles sold out, I vacillated among “Rift Metallic,” and “Electric Blue,” but in no way definitely discovered a colour I was one hundred% sold on. 2023 brought “Maverick Noir Frost” and a handful of other alternatives, but I definitely wanted to see some thing like BMWs “Thundernight Metallic.”

For 2024, a new crop of colors has emerged, and whilst none of them are purple, and much more than half of them are type of greyscale, there is now a yellow alternative, “Cyber Yellow Metallic” pictured above on the CT4-V Blackwing.

It reminds me of a further fantastic BMW colour, Phoenix Yellow but with a tiny much more pop, and much more importantly, it aligns with my general theory of automotive paint, which boils down to “cars with a standard type aspect get wilder colors, and supercars and hypercars must be beige.” I likely wouldn’t do a yellow Ferrari, but a yellow sports sedan from an American manufacturer? Yes, I think that tends to make sense.

And whilst the CT5-V BW appears outstanding in say, “Summit White” (under), I’d have to do my aspect to fight the greyscaling of the American automotive palette.
