Due to the fact I drove them back in 2021, I’ve spent a lot of time configuring Cadillac CT5-V Blackwings and CT4-V Blackwings on the Cadillac internet site. Immediately after the restricted production “Dark Emerald Frost” vehicles sold out, I vacillated involving “Rift Metallic,” and “Electric Blue,” but never ever genuinely discovered a colour I was one hundred% sold on. 2023 brought “Maverick Noir Frost” and a handful of other possibilities, but I genuinely wanted to see some thing like BMWs “Thundernight Metallic.”

For 2024, a new crop of colors has emerged, and whilst none of them are purple, and much more than half of them are sort of greyscale, there is now a yellow selection, “Cyber Yellow Metallic” pictured above on the CT4-V Blackwing.
It reminds me of a different excellent BMW colour, Phoenix Yellow but with a tiny much more pop, and much more importantly, it aligns with my all round theory of automotive paint, which boils down to “cars with a standard kind aspect get wilder colors, and supercars and hypercars really should be beige.” I most likely wouldn’t do a yellow Ferrari, but a yellow sports sedan from an American manufacturer? Yes, I think that tends to make sense.
And whilst the CT5-V BW appears unbelievable in say, “Summit White” (beneath), I’d have to do my portion to fight the greyscaling of the American automotive palette.
Verify out the rest of the new possibilities on the Cadillac internet site and inform me I’m incorrect.
