First Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing Buyers Receive Exclusive GiftsJanuary 19, 2021
The highly anticipated Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing will finally arrive on February 1, 2021 and will be fully revealed during a live stream on Cadillac’s official website and social media.
There have already been reports that Cadillac will limit pre-orders for the upcoming CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing to just 250 units per model. But now, according to another report from the GM Authority, early buyers of the Blackwing series can get richer equipment.
According to the report, pre-ordering the first 500 vehicles (250 per vehicle) will provide three exclusive items that subsequent buyers will not receive.
First, each of the 500 Blackwing buyers will receive a Certificate of Authenticity attesting production performance. While it may just be a piece of paper, such documentation is expected to drive up the value of vehicles in the coming years.
Next comes training at the Cadillac V-Performance Academy at the Spring Mountain resort in Nevada. This resort has slopes in a variety of configurations, making it the perfect destination for a driving experience, whatever your skill level. Individual instructions should be helpful to both novice and experienced drivers.
As a reminder, both models will pack some serious power: the CT4-V Blackwing is powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine producing 464 hp. and 603 Nm of torque, while the CT5-V Blackwing, which has a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8, has 640 hp. and 854 Nm of torque. Both vehicles will be available with a six-speed manual transmission.
Finally, the first Blackwing customers will receive a mysterious “gift”. It is unclear what this will be, but Cadillac previously provided CT6-V customers with a poster and a scale model of the Blackwing V8 itself, and GM provided C8 Corvette buyers with scale models of their vehicles. These additions have yet to be confirmed, but we’ll probably find out for sure when the CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing models debut on February 1st.
