The paint is still drying on Cadillac?s ATS-V and CTS-V sports cars and the company is already releasing a special version of both called the Crystal White Frost Edition. Only 99 will be built; 29 will be CTS-V sedans, 39 will be ATS-V coupes and the rest will be ATS-V sedans.
The package on the ATS includes Cadillac?s Crystal White Frost matte-finish paint, polished forged-aluminum wheels, carbon fiber front splitter, hood vent, rear diffuser, black rocker extensions and a body-color rear spoiler.
The CWF ATS-V also comes with the ?luxury package,? though items like an enhanced version of CUE, sport alloy pedals, a universal home remote, HID headlights, split-folding seats and a 110-volt power point don?t seem particularly upscale to us considering the car's $70k+ starting price. Convenient, just not upscale.
The CTS-V gets 19-inch wheels, as opposed to 18s on the ATS and the same carbon fiber upgrades. The luxury stuff looks a little more...luxurious, with tri-zone climate control, heated rear seats and a power rear sunshade.
According to Cadillac a few additional options can be installed, depending on dealer. They include Recaro performance seats, a performance data recorder, the ultra-view sunroof and painted brake calipers.
Cadillac also notes that ?Crystal White Frost paint is engineered to be as durable as normal paint but requires special attention for cleaning." Special care and cleaning instructions can be found here.
The ATS-V Frost Editions start at $71,640 for the sedan and $73,660 for the coupe, including destination. The CTS-V is priced at $94,990. They?ll be at dealers by the end of this month. Buyers can call Cadillac Customer Support at (800) 333-4223 to find a dealer.
