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."

Roadfly.com - 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Road Test & Review
We finally had a chance to test drive the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The
MSRP starts at $63K and even at that price you get a ton of bang for your
buck. Not to mention all that horsepower. 0-60 MPH on the
CTS-V Coupe is 3.9 seconds. The supercharged V8 produces 556 horsepower.
Roadflys review of the CTS-V Coupe confirms that Cadillac is going head to
head against the best the Germans have to offer. The Cadillac CTS-V by just
about every test beats the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG and BMWs M5.

DRIVE- 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon
The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon should not be appealing to most since Americans
don't like station wagons, it gets lousy fuel economy and it starts at 63K.
One test drive and you'll be tempted to raid your 401K. Tom Voelk checks

2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Special Edition (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
MAZDA UNVEILS MX-5 MIATA SPECIAL EDITION AT CHICAGO AUTO SHOW
Limited-run model conveys luxurious side of the world's most-beloved
CHICAGO (February 9, 2011) -- On the heels of its recent milestone
announcement of 900,000 MX-5 Miatas being produced, Mazda North American
Operations (MNAO) today unveiled the 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition, a
limited-run model of only 750 units. The Special Edition continues the
MX-5's history of being a dynamically-engineered, enthusiast-approved
roadster whose price doesn't discriminate and whose luxuries are not
Special Edition-exclusive interior touches include gray door trim and
heated leather seats with gray stitching, a black leather-wrapped parking
brake and steering wheel with contrasting gray stitching, chrome treatments
to the air vents and instrument cluster as well as aluminum pedals (6MT
only). Special Edition models are only available in Sparkling Black Mica or
Dolphin Gray Mica, two new MX-5 colors, and are packaged with 17-inch
Bright Finish aluminum alloy wheels.
The MX-5 traditionally has appealed to higher income households as its
purchase reason is not as the practical daily driver but as the additional
"fun" car, such as for those long, winding road-hunting weekends.
Originally available in three trim levels -- Sport, Touring and Grand
Touring -- the Special Edition is based off of a fully-equipped Grand
Touring model but is only available with the industry-leading, easy-to-use
Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT).
Popular in both warm and winter climates, PRHT models go from
rain-deflector to sun-worshipper in 12 seconds -- with trunk space to boot
-- and outsell soft tops 4:1 worldwide. In the United States, there also is
no lack of interest for premium accessories as 70 percent of Grand Touring
models sold are PRHT-equipped, of which 50 percent are optioned with the
Premium Package. The Premium Package is standard on the Special Edition and
includes a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system, SIRIUS® Satellite Radio
with a six-month complimentary subscription, Xenon headlights, Dynamic
Stability Control (DSC) with a Traction Control System (TCS), an anti-theft
alarm and the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System.
It is no secret that on any given weekend more Mazdas and Mazda-powered
vehicles are road-raced than any other brand. Performance and tuning are
dynamically engineered into every Mazda and the MX-5 Miata Special Edition
retains its sports car soul but with a few niceties not meant for the
bumper-to-bumper love taps of the track.
