Considering 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 website. Soon after the restricted production “Dark Emerald Frost” vehicles sold out, I vacillated among “Rift Metallic,” and “Electric Blue,” but under no circumstances actually located a colour I was one hundred% sold on. 2023 brought “Maverick Noir Frost” and a handful of other solutions, but I actually wanted to see one thing like BMWs “Thundernight Metallic.”

For 2024, a new crop of colors has emerged, and when none of them are purple, and extra than half of them are sort of greyscale, there is now a yellow selection, “Cyber Yellow Metallic” pictured above on the CT4-V Blackwing.
It reminds me of an additional fantastic BMW colour, Phoenix Yellow but with a small extra pop, and extra importantly, it aligns with my general theory of automotive paint, which boils down to “cars with a regular kind aspect get wilder colors, and supercars and hypercars ought to 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 when the Ct5-V BW appears amazing in say, “Summit White” (beneath), I’d have to do my aspect to fight the greyscaling of the American automotive palette.
Verify out the rest of the new solutions on the Cadillac website and inform me I’m incorrect.
