Anyone else considering the new Cadillac Blackwing models?

The first drive reviews are out and these cars look to be phenomenal.

I’m still kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on the Gen 2 V wagon with stick. I had the opportunity to buy a new one at $7k off of sticker but talked myself out because it wasn’t the right color. (Then proceeded to waste my time and money with an acura MDX)

Way out of my price range but they look very nice. The specs look very promising as well. These might turn into an investment car down the road with these being the last ICE performance car from them.

Yes, these cars are very expensive. But considering the fact that the stupid wagon I should bought is worth as much, if not more, than what I could’ve bought it for, it’s highly likely that you won’t lose much on this car. (as long as you buy one with the manual trans, opportunity cost not withstanding)

The one I‘ve priced out came out to $103k. That‘s only a $2k monthly payment!

I built and drove a bunch of the V2's and 3's. The 5 black wing would be a nice daily. I'm not sure how much of an investment it will be tho.

That car #69….well worth the $$!
(It also put down 620 hp on a Dynojet with less than a 100 miles on it.)

Honestly I think Cadillac finally beat BMW. They look phenomenal in person, drive reviews are all great, manual trans available, interior is finally at an acceptable level.
All but the last point was true of the previous ATS-V. It was a great car if you didn't even need to look at the gauges. But my god, those were terrible, straight out of a Cavalier.

Naaa. Those are at least Cimarron level

I absolute love the new Blackwing models but will never buy one unless I come into a ton of money.

I just went on Cadillac's website and configured one that came out to $115k. :eek:

You're not wrong, but iirc that car came out in 2014? That's a long time ago.

Our car came out in 2014 and is comically better, much less if you compare it to an RS4 or M3 interior from that generation. It's awful, even if it was from the 80's.
