The Bird takes flight.

The fourth-generation V-Series is finding its wings again; its blackwings. The Blackwing has a long history in the Cadillac heritage. If you see a V-Series Cadillac from the 1930-1940s, you see the V-logo’s grace as it embraces the grille. Just over 4,000 of the opulent V-16s were created during the Great Depression. The economic woes of World War II made those cars exclusive.

There have been many years between the V-16 and a proper V-Series. Some forums were concerned that Cadillac wouldn’t be producing any more V-Series, but Cadillac shared an image of the 2022 CT5-V Blackwing and the CT4-V Blackwing performance steering wheel.

The leather steering wheel is meticulously crafted with cut-and-sewn stitching, a 12 o’clock red racing stripe, a carbon-fiber trim, and a V-Series emblem, a nod to Cadillac’s championship-winning heritage on the track. Cadillac’s exclusive V-Mode and Performance Traction Management system is positioned on the left- and right-hand side of the wheel, respectively.

The V-Series Blackwing signifies the ultimate in Cadillac performance and craftsmanship by combining the brand’s racing heritage with luxury and comfort to create the most track-capable Cadillacs ever.

The CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing will be available in the summer of 2021.
