2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Black Diamond Edition – Click above for high-res image gallery

General Motors is showing off its sexy new Cadillac Black Diamond Edition CTS-V Sport Wagon at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, complete with its exotic SpectraFlair paint and snazzy yellow brake calipers. As you may recall, GM partnered up with JDSU for the special hue, and each Black Diamond Edition Caddy gets a three-coat paint process. Along with the shiny stuff, Cadillac bolted on a set of Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels that help make those wild calipers pop in a big way, and the interior makes use of plenty of micro suede and special wood accents.

The combined effect is one very sinister long-roof.

Prices for the gussied-up CTS-V coupe start at $70,490, which is a $4,850 premium over the run-of-the-mill V. Worth it? We'll just say that this machine is one of the few at this year's Chicago Auto Show that has earned a presence on our 'most wanted' list.

      Love it! Wish I had $70,000 laying around! Come to think of it, I wish I had 70 dollars laying around.

      According to the gmfleet online order/reference guide, the $4,850 Black Diamond package includes:

      Exterior section-Added "(PCH) Black Diamond CTS-V Special Edition, includes (RBJ) 19" x 9" (48.3 cm x 22.9 cm) front, 19" x 9.5" (48.3 cm x 24.1 cm) rear, Satin Graphite wheels, (J6E) Yellow calipers, (W2E) Recaro performance seats and (3AS) Wood Trim Package". Availability is "A" for 1SV PEG only

      Edmunds shows the Recardo seats at $3,400, the wood trim package at $600, 19” Satin Graphite wheels at $800 and painted yellow calipers as a no cost option. So, the fancy paint, when packaged with the four stand alone options is actually only costing $50.

      Man, this thing is hideous, looks like a car from the eighties, too boxy!

      I love sport wagons, just wish they did something better with the low rent looking fog light areas, more integrated less exposed ABS plastic, and the cheese grater grills.

      Although I can't afford either, I'm torn between a red CTS-V wagon and this one. Both look great.

      So is this the second of the 2 cars that Reuss was talking about? I was hoping to see something brand new, like a new Zeta-platform sedan, rather than new trim levels/versions of current models.

      Never been a true fan of "station wagons" but man this thing is starting to change my mind. Hefty price tag on it but I am sure it is well worth it.

      The car show lighting is making the rear window look awful. It's so brightly lit from above (to make the sparkly pop) that the black border around the rear window is almost a medium grey and stands out in a bad way. I'm sure that particular aspect looks better in real life.

      It's a beautiful color, I'm supremely jealous of it.

      These special editions are all well and good (great looking wagon), but I am still waiting for the direly-needed A series to show.

      I've been thinking about trading in my V sedan for a wagon, but I think I'll pass on this version.
