Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing

Given 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 page. Just after the restricted production “Dark Emerald Frost” automobiles sold out, I vacillated amongst “Rift Metallic,” and “Electric Blue,” but by no means definitely located a colour I was one hundred% sold on. 2023 brought “Maverick Noir Frost” and a handful of other possibilities, but I definitely wanted to see one thing like BMWs “Thundernight Metallic.”

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

It reminds me of a further excellent BMW colour, Phoenix Yellow but with a small 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 element get wilder colors, and supercars and hypercars ought to be beige.” I almost certainly wouldn’t do a yellow Ferrari, but a yellow sports sedan from an American manufacturer? Yes, I think that tends to make sense.

And though 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.

Verify out the rest of the new possibilities on the Cadillac web page and inform me I’m incorrect.
