Cadillac Creates 99-unit Exclusive – V-Series Crystal White Frost Editions of ATS-V and CTS-V



Very sexy launch rollout for the all-new CTS-V and ATS-V!

Crystal White Frost Editions are headed to dealerships by the end of October, aka this week and next. 39 of the ATS-V Coupes are made in this special satin paintwork. Just 31 of the satin matte white ATS-V sedans will be made, matched by even-more-limited 29 units of the CTS-V in white frost.

Loaded configurations accompany this special color for both, with pricing from $71k for the ATS and $95k for the CTS-V.

Why so few numbers of these hot bodies? The paint is exceptionally expensive — at around a $10k option on some superlux Bentleys, etc. It is durable but has special care instructions versus a normal glossy paint finish.

Cadillac directs interested buyers to an 800 number at the bottom of this page, but we’ve also nabbed the PDF of Cystal White Frost dealerships, which are the only ones set to receive the secret special-edition.

Just a few preview photos of the machines so far in production form, but this is the paint finish from their auto show debuts.
