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."

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.

The D3 Battle Wagon a 700HP CTS-V Station Wagon
We fell in love with this wagon the first time is set tires in our
workshop. On top of it being a wagon, it's a 6 speed manual trans!
In the D3 Battle Wagon, even trips to the grocery store are all the more
fun with 715 HP and 725 ft-lb's of Torque!
The build concept for the D3 Battle Wagon was to completely upgrade all OEM
components with the most aggressive bolt on parts possible. The result is
an ultra fun, track worthy station wagon!
Signal Hill, CA -- June 18th 2011, A 700+ Wheel horsepower CTS-V Station
Wagon dubbed "The Battle Wagon" has been completed for delivery to its
eagerly awaiting driver.
"CTS-V wagons are a still a rarity, on top of that finding a white 6 speed
manual was like trying to locate Atlantis!" Says John B. the owner of the
Battle Wagon. "The second I heard that Cadillac was going to launch the
CTS-V in wagon form I knew it would be my next car, I have always loved
wagons, from the E39 5 series to the Audi S4 Wagon now to the Cadillac
CTS-V Wagon. With less than 500 miles on the clock the wagon was booked
for an appointment at the D3 Motorsport Laboratory which is D3's in house
The tuning concept of The D3 Battle Wagon is to encompass manageable
amounts of horsepower, allowing for a
balanced, but track worthy grocery getter. To complete the Wagon the
Motorsport Laboratory has broken the build into 3 categories; Performance,
Efficiency & Chassis Tuning.
A wide range of Performance Tuning Equipment manufactured by D3 has been
utilized to upgrade the performance characteristics of the Cadillac CTS-V's
LSA power plant. The Pulley System has been upgraded via the D3 Stage 3
Performance Pulley Kit allowing for a mind numbing 17 PSI of Boost out of the factory Eaton 1.9L Blower
that has been Blueprinted to D3's specifications. To feed this Boost monster the D3 Air Intake, D3 Billet
Throttle Body and D3 Supercharger Lid
Spacer have been installed. Exhaust
work has been provided by the Kooks Long Tube Headers, Kooks X-Pipe with
Race Catalytic Converts and the CORSA touring mufflers. These upgrades
have yielded a raw horsepower gain of 244 wheel
To keep the D3 Battle Wagon ready for action all of its cooling has been
upgraded via the gamut of D3|ULTRACOOLERS. The ULTRACOOLER systems include
the D3 Front Mount Heat Exchanger (Intercooler) the D3 Competition Oil
Cooler, and the D3 Competition Radiator. The chassis has been dialed in
via the D3 suspension suite including: The D3 Competition Lowering
Springs, the D3 Competition Sway Bar Kit, D3 Chassis Bracing, D3 Stainless
Steel Brake Lines and Alcon 2pc Competition Rotors.
"When everything is said and done, I have a complete competition ready
CTS-V, and the best part is that it's a wagon!"

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.

Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy 406 544 6919
This is from one of My SUbscribers who knows ALOT about these cars
All wagons from 71-76 rode on the C-body chassis (127 inch) wheelbase...
(Chevrolet Belair-Townsman, Impala-Kingswood, Caprice-Kingwood Estate), the
Pontiac Safari (Catalina, Bonneville, and Grand Ville wagons were all
Safari's) - (Grand Ville was called Grand Safari), Olds Custom Cruiser
(with 88 and 98 interiors), and Buick Estate (LeSabre and Electra series
interiors). In 1977 the wagons moved to the B-body chassis and rode on
the 116" wheelbase until 1996 when they were discontinued

U.S. Nationals to Drag Week: Adventure in a '67 Ford Wagon! - Roadkill Ep. 33
This time, Freiburger and Finnegan were out for a gearhead vacation,
heading from the NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indy to HOT ROD Drag Week in Tulsa,
but they had no car to drive. Posting on the Roadkill Facebook page was all
it took to get fans to bring about a dozen cars for the guys to consider
buying. After a struggle, they ended up letting a 5-year-old pick the car
for them: a '67 Ford Country Sedan wagon. Next it was hanging on the
starting line with mega-team owner Don Schumacher and other stars of the
NHRA, a road trip that involved getting threatened by an old man with a
steel pipe, and a final destination with the action of HOT ROD Drag Week. A
past Roadkill co-star ended up winning that race overall, and you'll also
watch as Larry Larson sets the record for the single quickest pass of all
time for a street-legal vehicle.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
