This is our best look yet at the 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Track Edition

Cadillac has unveiled the upcoming CTV-4 Blackwing Track Edition ahead of its unveiling this month.

The special variant was first previewed by Cadillac a few days ago in a clip that showed it was adorned with a number of distinctive parts, setting it apart from the ‘regular’ CT4-V Blackwing. This image shared by Cadillac Performance on social media shows three versions of the Track Edition.

These three cars are expected to be finished in Maverick Noir Frost, Rift Metallic and Electric Blue. Each one features red IMSA branding on the carbon fiber front spoiler. We can also see that the white car has contrasting red door mirrors, red brake calipers and rollers on a set of sporty wheels with a chrome finish.

The matte black model is a little different as it matches its low profile paint with black wheels and silver brake calipers. Last but not least, there is the Electric Blue CT4-V Blackwing Track Edition, equipped with black door mirrors and bronze colored wheels. All three vehicles have unique graphics on the doors and hood. They all seem to have the same carbon fiber rear lip spoiler as the stock CT4-V Blackwing.

In a Twitter post, Cadillac said, “Each of the three special editions will honor Cadillac Racing with unique interior packages, colors and graphics inspired by success on iconic American racetracks.” As such, the Track Edition is not expected to benefit from performance upgrades.

Cadillac has also confirmed that orders for the CT4-V Blackwing Track Edition will open on August 1, but buyers had better hurry as availability will be “extremely limited.”

Left untouched, the 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 will continue to pump out 472 horsepower and 445 lb-ft (603 Nm) of torque, allowing the sports sedan to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds and progress to a top speed of 189 mph (304 km/h).
