CARS.COM — Still looking for a special car to put a big red bow on for Christmas? Cadillac has a couple of good ones for the driver on your list who's naughty when it comes to paying attention to speed limits: Going on sale this month are limited editions of the ATS-V and CTS-V performance cars, complete with Santa-red mirror caps and red interior accents.
You can get them in snow white (actually Crystal White Tricoat), or you can go for the bad-Santa vibe with Black Raven. Just 200 total will be built, all for North America.
These Championship Editions celebrate Cadillac's successful return to endurance racing this year after 14 years away. Its V-Performance DPi-V.R prototype race car won seven straight IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races, including the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring, and took the Manufacturer's Championship.
Beyond the colors, red mirrors and red interior stitching, both special editions include:
- V-Performance graphics on hood and rear spoiler
- DPi-V.R graphics on quarter windows
- Red-accented carbon-fiber interior trim
- A carbon-fiber front splitter, hood vent, rear spoiler and lower rear bumper
- A moonroof
- Red Brembo brake calipers
- Recaro sport seats
The CTS-V gets 19-inch polished alloy wheels with black accents; the ATS-V gets 18s.
Both include tuition and accommodations at the two-day Cadillac V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club in Nevada. The special CTS-V sedan starts at $105,730, including a destination charge; the ATS-V starts at $72,190 for the sedan and $74,390 for the coupe.
