In celebration of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which are currently underway, Cadillac has unveiled two limited-edition cars. With unique design elements, fresh hues, and restricted badging, the CT5-V Blackwing Le Monstre and CT4-V Blackwing Petit Petaud honor the event and Cadillac's racing history.

The Blackwing CT5-V draws inspiration from the 101st running of Le Mans, akin to the 1950 Cadillac racing vehicle known as Le Monstre.

Stormhawk Blue carbon fiber details complement the exterior's bespoke Magnus Metal Frost paint job. On the inside, you'll find blue highlights and a uniquely designed set of sill plates that have the same pattern as the historical number "2" engraved into the seatbacks.

On each corner, there are etchings of the words "Le Monstre" and "75 Years." The 668-horsepower factory-installed supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine sits under the hood. In 1950, Cadillac debuted the CT4-V Blackwing Petit Pataud at the Le Mans race, naming it after a Series 61 racing vehicle of the same name.

It mimics the bigger CT5-V's exterior paint job—Magnus Metal Frost—with Stormhawk Blue carbon fiber accents—but it has black leather inside and the legacy number "3" instead. A 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 472 horsepower powers the CT4-V Blackwing. Badging will be placed inside each vehicle to indicate their restricted availability.

Cadillac will only produce 101 units of the CT5-V and 50 units of the CT4-V. Cadillac did not provide prices for these two premium trim levels; nevertheless, in 2025, the base CT5-V Blackwing will cost about $95,000, and the base CT4-V Blackwing begins at $63,590.
