New Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing Special Editions Honor Le Mans

The special edition CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing models honor Cadillac’s racing heritage.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is underway, and to mark the occasion, Cadillac has released two special editions. The CT5-V Blackwing Le Monstre and CT4-V Blackwing Petit Petaud celebrate Cadillac’s racing heritage and the iconic race itself with unique design elements, new colors, and limited edition badging.

The CT5-V Blackwing Le Monstre, aptly named after the 1950 Cadillac race car, draws inspiration from the car’s legacy and the 101st running of Le Mans. It features a custom Magnus Metal Frost paint with Stormhawk Blue carbon fiber accents.

Inside, it features blue accents and a heritage number “2” etched into the seatbacks, along with custom sill plates bearing the same heritage number design. The phrases “Le Monstre” and “75 Years” are etched into each corner. Under the hood, it boasts a factory supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine producing 668 horsepower.

The CT4-V Blackwing Petit Pataud draws inspiration from Cadillac’s 1950 Le Mans debut, named after the Series 61 race car with the same nickname. It shares the Magnus Metal Frost paint and Stormhawk Blue carbon fiber accents with the larger CT5-V but features the heritage number “3” and a black leather interior. The CT4-V Blackwing is equipped with a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 472 horsepower.

Each Cadillac will feature interior badging to signify their limited availability, with only 101 units of the CT5-V and just 50 units of the CT4-V being produced. While Cadillac has not listed pricing for these special editions, the standard CT5-V Blackwing is expected to cost around $95,000 for the 2025 model year, and the CT4-V Blackwing starts at $63,590.
