2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Black Diamond Edition (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
Cadillac launches CTS-V Black Diamond Edition
Exclusive paint process enhances richness of CTS-V surface
First use of JDSU's proprietary SpectraFlair® pigment in North America
Satin Graphite wheels, yellow Brembo brake calipers add style, performance
Recaro seating, Midnight Sapele wood complete interior
DETROIT -- Cadillac will offer this spring a Black Diamond Edition of the high-performance CTS-V that comes with a host of popular performance options and an exclusive tri-coat paint, also called "Black Diamond."
The Black Diamond Edition, available in the CTS-V Sedan, Coupe and Wagon models, will be the first use by an automaker of JDSU's proprietary SpectraFlair pigment in North America. JDSU, a Milipitas, Calif.,-based optical technology firm, specializes in cutting-edge color solutions for a wide range of markets. Its pigments are used in certain DuPont paints supplied to Cadillac.
In the CTS-V Black Diamond, a dark tri-coat paint is embedded with SpectraFlair Bright Silver pigment. While other luxury makers offer metallic paints, Black Diamond is created through a meticulous process that gives the paint added dimension.
Instead of simply containing small bits of metal, the SpectraFlair pigment in Black Diamond uses aluminum flakes encapsulated in a glass-like substance called magnesium fluoride. The result is a paint that has a diamond-like sparkle as light hits the surface from different angles.
"The CTS-V Black Diamond Edition is like a finely crafted, tailored tuxedo," said Michelle Killen, Cadillac exterior paint designer. "The base color may be a simple black, but the details and richness of the material set it apart."
Black Diamond helps Cadillac meet growing demand by luxury buyers for paints that are set apart not just by their color but also by their special effects.
"Auto makers and consumers are looking to differentiate the color black, an ubiquitous color in automotive," said John Book, Custom Color Solutions product manager at JDSU. "Black Diamond offers the discerning Cadillac customer a special option color that stands out and remains true to their sense of luxury and style."

1966 Nova Wagon: TAPOUT Terror - /BIG MUSCLE
• Tim "SkyScrape" Katz
Most people who want to go road racing don't start off in a 48-year old
station wagon. However it you're Tim "SkyScrape" Katz, the co-founder of
"TAPOUT" you just say "F*CK IT", and build a wagon with the big 'ole V8
engine, a basketball size turbo, a roll
cage and four racing seats so the family can come along for the ride. Tim's
1966 Chevrolet Nova Wagon was built in his garage and is anything but
stock. Sure it's got some trick parts, but if you think it's a high-dollar
resto-rod, think again as Tim's not only one helluva wrench, but one of the
most die-hard car guys you're ever likely to meet.

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon Test Drive & Car Review
Cadillac's CTS-V is a musclebound powerhouse of a car, offered in coupe,
sedan, and--in our case--wagon form. This is one of those 'Holy Grail'
cars for enthusiasts, a car that looks great, sounds like the end of the
world, and offers nuclear-level performance while carting its occupants
around in a roomy, well-appointed cabin.
In short, on paper it looks perfect, especially for a wagon enthusiast like
myself. And it looks great in person, too. Our test car's silver coat was
offset beautifully by the optional wheels in glossy black, and brake
calipers in a shade of yellow that looks like it came off a Lamborghini.
The near-exotic feel was capped by the optional suede on the steering wheel
and the shift lever.
On the road, the CTS-V didn't quite feel the way I was hoping it would.
I'd hoped, despite the insanity of the supercharged LS3 (556 hp, 551 lb-ft
of torque) that propels the wagon from 0-60 in around 4 seconds flat, that
the car would dance a little bit. It doesn't, really...it simply looks for
the next available stretch of highway on which it can further stupefy its
driver with its ability to melt great distances down to nothing.
And that really isn't the car's fault. At Despite its great lap times and
well-sorted development, there is simply a limit to what a car of this
size, weight (over 4300lb), and power level can do for this amount of
money. Starting at around $63,400, the CTS-V wagon offers the performance
(and size, and imposing presence) of a $90,000 M5 for the price of an M3.
That in itself is an accomplishment that Cadillac can be unabashedly proud
The fact is that this car is even more unique than the coupe and sedan
versions of the CTS-V. It performs nearly as well, just a few ticks behind
the lighter bodystyles in both 0-60 and 1/4-mile sprints. But it's a
freaking wagon! With 25 cubic feet of cargo room with the seats up, and 68
cubes with the seats folded, it beats out many SUVs, including the BMW X5,
the M version of which will just not keep up with this Caddy CTS despite
costing a cool $40-50k more. You pay for it at the pump, of course, with
mileage in the estimated range of 14 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. But the
low entry price relative to anything that comes close performance-wise is
well worth it.
