The ordering guide for the Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing sport sedans has revealed that the cars will have the option to be delivered in a more premium way, unexposed to the elements. This option comes standard on all 120th-anniversary models. Meanwhile, non-anniversary Blackwings have it as an option. Per the official order guide, the Cadillac Blackwing closed carrier delivery option is RPO code “XES” for both models.

A closed carrier delivery is perfect for when you want to get a car and be sure absolutely nothing has touched the paint while making its way to the delivery location, while also elevating the experience of delivering such a car. Let’s face it, seeing your new baby on one of those scaffolded car carriers can leave things feeling pretty commodified. This is Cadillac, and we can’t have that.

Cadillac V-Series Blackwing: Details

The first 250 production builds of each model of the Cadillac V-Series Blackwing sports cars will be collector series vehicles commemorated to the people that made them with two collector plates on the sills and B-pillars. In addition, each sill plate will feature the signature from a member of the Cadillac V-Series team. Meanwhile, the collector plates found on the B-pillar correspond to each car’s serialized Performance Steering Wheel. Lastly, the hand-built supercharged LT4 V8 engine of the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing features a signed plaque from the master builder.

The Cadillac V-Series Blackwings have an assortment of easter eggs for customers to find throughout the vehicles. Some of the easter eggs we know about include laser-etched maps of each location important to the development of the cars located on the two paddle shifter covers. Cadillac says that there are around two dozen little discoveries to be found by owners.

The 2022 CT4-V Blackwing has limited availability and starts at $59,990, with the fully configured model reaching $87,775. The CT5-V Blackwing begins at $84,990, while the fully configured model is $125,980. Unfortunately for coupe fans, these super Cadillacs will only be available as sedans. Luckily, despite this, the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing can be had with manual and automatic transmissions, something many cars these days don’t offer.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
