Cadillac CTS-V "Supersonic Blue" prototype - Click above for high-res image gallery

Last month, following an IM conversation between myself and Autoblog's Test Fleet Manager, Steve Ewing, I tweeted this. I love the Supersonic Blue paint GM offers on the Chevrolet Corvette, you see, and I think it'd look killer on the Cadillac CTS-V. I hadn't given it much thought until yesterday, when I attended a Cadillac event at the Monticello Motor Club. Parked outside the clubhouse next to the pit road, was the car you see above, a new CTS-V sedan finished in Supersonic Blue with satin graphite wheels. Inside, the Recaro seats and door trim matched the exterior. It's wicked.

I immediately asked Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell if this was a new paint color for the 2012 model. It's not. Not yet, at least. Caddy prepped the car and brought it out to Monticello to gauge reaction to the color before a final decision is made. If it winds up happening, it'll likely be a new special edition, in the vein of this year's Black Diamond package. Personally, I think this is a no-brainer, and said as much to the Caddy reps on hand. Maybe you think differently, though, so here's your shot to weigh in.

Use the poll below to tell Cadillac if you think they should have the CTS-V go Supersonic. Before you vote, just imagine the Sport Wagon done up like this. Got that mental image? Good. Now go vote.

      What a novel idea ... a car whose interior and exterior colors match. LOL, customers used to have that option in the "old" days.

      Nice color, but those wheels look like something a kid would put on his first ricer.

      Cadillac has done what they needed to do: they realized that their traditional buyer was getting too old to drive and that Cadillac had to attract a new wave of buyers, ones that could continue to buy more then one Cadillac over their lifetime. This current crop of Cadillacs are more aligned with buyers of certain German makes that are considered luxery and performance icons. More power to Cadillac! If you forget the past, you're doomed to repeat it. It works with automotive design as well. If they had stuck rigidly to the 'Sedan deVille' formula, they could have gone the way of Oldsmoble, or DeSoto, or,......... well, you get the idea.

      Color is fine, though not at all heart rate increasing for me... I really don't like the wheels though.
