Cadillac Introduces Exclusive V-Series Championship Editions
Thursday, November 30, 2017

To celebrate winning the 2017 IMSA Manufacturer, Driver, Team and Endurance Championships, Cadillac announced today the Championship Edition for all three of its ultra-high-performance models – the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V coupe and sedan, and the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V super sedan.

The special edition models celebrate Cadillac’s first-ever endurance racing Manufacturer’s Championship, secured in the first year of the brand’s return to the long-distance sport. The Championship Editions of the ATS-V and CTS-V super is available in Black Raven or Crystal White Tricoat exterior paint with Cadillac V-Performance graphics located on hood and rear spoiler, Red Obsession side-view mirror caps, DPi-V.R graphic on the quarter windows, Red Brembo® brake calipers and forged polish-finished alloy V-Series wheels with Midnight Silver painted pockets.

Highlighting the interior of the Championship Edition is the Morello Red interior detail package that includes Jet Black RECARO® race-inspired seats, red front and rear door armrests and Morello accented high gloss carbon fiber interior trim. Other interior features include the Performance Data Recorder with Cosworth Toolbox, sunroof, the industry leading Rear Camera Mirror and next-generation Cadillac user experience.

Inspired by a Year of Racing Success

The all-new Cadillac V-Performance DPi-V.R prototype race car began the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season with seven-straight race wins and secured the Manufacturer’s Championship by winning  seven of the 10 races, including the “36 Hours of Florida” which includes wins of the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the Twelve Hours of Sebring early in the season. Before this season’s dramatic return to endurance racing, Cadillac had a 14-year hiatus from the sport, focusing efforts on sprint-format GT racing in eleven seasons of the Pirelli World Challenge, where Cadillac amassed 33 race wins, 121 podium finishes, 25 pole positions, five Manufacturer Championships, and six Driver Championships including the 2017 SprintX Championship..

Cadillac placed three cars in IMSA’s Prototype category for the 2017 IMSA season. The No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R driven full-time by Jordan and Ricky Taylor; the No. 5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R driven by Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi; and the No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac DPi-V.R driven by Eric Curran and Dane Cameron. 

The 2018 Cadillac Championship Edition ATS-V sedans will start at $72,190 and coupes at $74,390. The 2018 CTS-V Championship Edition sedans will start at $105,730, including destination freight charges but excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees.  In total, 200 Championship Editions will be built and are available for North America.
