Cadillac launches CTS-V Black Diamond Edition
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
"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."
In addition to the unique paint, CTS-V Black Diamond comes standard with
content that complements its look and feel. The special edition has:
Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels with yellow Brembo brake calipers. These
six-piston front, four-piston back brake calipers provide exceptional
Recaro seats that feature 14 adjustable elements, French-stitched leather
and microfiber suede inserts in the center sections of the cushions and
Midnight Sapele wood trim known for its durability and distinctive grain.
"We've already established V-Series as a serious sub-brand for Cadillac,"
said Rich Pinto, Cadillac creative designer. "Black Diamond further
establishes V-Series in the market as a performance-minded line of vehicles
with a luxury twist."
The CTS-V Black Diamond comes with a suggested retail price, including
destination charges, of $69,190 for the manual or $70,490 for the
automatic, a $4,850 premium over the CTS-V base price. The CTS-V Black
Diamond will be available at U.S. dealerships in March.
The CTS-V Black Diamond Edition joins Cadillac's award-winning V-Series
line of performance luxury vehicles. The CTS-V Sedan, Coupe and Wagon all
feature a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with 556-horspower, Magnetic Ride
Control suspension that reads and reacts to the road 1,000 times a second
and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tire.

2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe
With anticipation of enthusiasts around the world at fever pitch, BMW M
GmbH unveiled the newest member of its intimate product family. For the
first time, the coveted M badge has been granted to the popular BMW
1-Series in the form of the all-new BMW 1-Series M Coupe. The M badge was
imparted after a two-year development process through which BMW M engineers
and test drivers achieved the exceptional power delivery and the signature,
near-perfect driving behavior of a BMW M car. The 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe
will be available in limited quantities and with a limited range of options
at Authorized BMW Centers in Spring, 2011.
"Eigenwillig," a German word meaning "self-willed," "individual," and
"determined to go its own way," has been the proper word to describe the
most unique and memorable M cars of the past three decades. With the
original 1988 BMW M3 as its inspiration, the 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe
combines the raw capabilities of a race car with the agility, versatility,
and seating position of a compact BMW Coupe to create a pure Ultimate
Driving Machine®. In doing so, the BMW 1-Series M Coupe continues the
eigenwillig tradition of BMW M. With its latest two-door model, BMW M is
illustrating its ability to build race car performance into a small car,
capable of everyday use.
The heart of every BMW is the engine, and so an inline-6 with outstanding
performance, free-revving behavior, and endless thrust propels the BMW
1-Series M Coupe. The concept is familiar: in the model history of BMW M,
the high-revving inline-6 is one of the classic engine formats. In the
second and third generations of BMW M3, the inline-6 became famous for
combining high output, razor-sharp response, and sonorous sounds. In the
BMW 1-Series M Coupe, the inline-6 engine concept is realized in its most
The twin-turbocharged, all-aluminum,
3.0-liter inline-6 engine is characterized by instantaneous response to the
accelerator pedal, fantastic sounds, and a free-revving spirit. The
combination of twin low-mass turbochargers and BMW's High Precision direct
injection offers an output a naturally-aspirated engine would only be able
to provide through more cylinders and larger displacement.
The turbocharger system developed for
the engine of the new BMW 1-Series M Coupe maintains a high output
throughout the entire engine speed range. Maximum output of 335 hp (250 kW)
is delivered at 5,900 rpm. Nominal peak torque is 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) from
1,500 rpm to 4,500 rpm. Redline is 7,000 rpm. The enhanced engine
management system of the BMW 1-Series M Coupe includes an
function to briefly increase torque under full load by another 37 lb-ft (50
Nm). This temporary torque peak of 369 lb-ft gives the car a substantial
increase in acceleration. The BMW 1-Series M Coupe will complete the sprint
from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds (0-100 kmh in 4.9 seconds).
The standing quarter-mile mark comes up in 13.2 seconds. Top speed is
limited electronically to 155 mph (250 kmh).

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.
