With the introduction of the latest Cadillac CTS, we knew it would only be a matter of time before a new CTS-V would come along. Now General Motors has revealed that the next CTS-V will arrive sometime next year, but before it does, the company is sending off the outgoing coupe with a special edition.

For 2015, the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe will come in a limited edition of 500 units decked out with a dark grille treatment, satin-finish wheels, red brake calipers and an upgraded cabin. The interior is decked out Recaro seats trimmed in black with red stitching, Midnight Sapele wood trim, metal pedals and a microsuede-trimmed steering wheel and shifter.

Buyers will be able to opt for white, gray or optional black exterior paint, an available sunroof and a six-speed transmission in either manual or automatic configuration. Of course, the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 comes standard with 556 horsepower, as does Magnetic Ride Control and brakes by Brembo. Pricing will be announced closer to launch, but in the mean time, you can read all there is to know by checking out the official release below.

Cadillac Celebrates V-Series with 2015 CTS-V Coupe
Special Edition the last before next-generation models arrive next year
2014-05-12

DETROIT – Cadillac today announced production of a limited, special-edition 2015 CTS-V Coupe, marking the last chapter of the current model before the next generation of the V-Series debuts next year.

The 2015 CTS-V Coupe will consist of 500 limited-edition cars available during the second half of 2014.

"The V-Series continues to elevate Cadillac, providing an exclusive family of high-performance luxury models that attract a new audience of elite and passionate buyers," said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer, Global Cadillac.

The special edition CTS-V Coupe shares the high-performance technology of its predecessors built from 2010–2014 – including Cadillac's Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and 556-horsepower (415kW) supercharged V-8 engine.

The CTS-V Coupe is the most dramatic model in the V-Series range of high-performance luxury models, blending a personal 2+2 layout with a drivetrain vetted on Germany's famed Nürburgring track.

The 2015 special edition version features an exclusive Ebony interior with red contrast stitching, Recaro® performance seats, metal pedals, Midnight Sapele wood trim, microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dark-finish V grille, satin graphite wheels and red brake calipers.

The 500 special-edition CTS-V Coupes will be produced this summer. Full pricing information will be released closer to production. Exterior color options include Crystal White, Black Diamond ($995) and Phantom Gray. Buyers can opt for either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. A sunroof also is available ($700).

The next-generation V-Series models are in development and will premiere next year.

"The special edition is a stepping stone to the next-generation V-Series, which will move to the next level with more dynamic design and technical sophistication," Ellinghaus said.

      I never liked the proportions of the coupe. Would much rather just have the sedan, or preferably the wagon.

      I'm still waiting for the normal CTS coupe to come down in price used. As soon as there is a decent black on black manual for under 30G's its mine.

      Good! Very tacky looking and cheap. I love the new ATS and CTS clean classy lines. These old caddys just scream 99 cent store.

      Honestly believe this is the best performance car (well, including sedan and wagon) America has come up with in the last 20 years... Farewell. 3rd gen has a tough act to follow. To The Moon, Cadillac!

      Hopefully the next one will be a little sleeker out back. I certainly won't miss that giant rump.

        Yes. And I'm praying that this new CTS will spawn a wagon variant as well...despite the media reporting otherwise.

      Farewell CTS-V coupe... In bigger news, the new generation Vs will debut next year!

      I love this car. Take one look at the M5, this generation or the last, and this thing is such a bargain.

      That's interesting. I wonder what the new CTS-V will look like AND if there will be a coupe variant. Anyone know?
