Since I drove them again in 2021, I’ve spent numerous time configuring Cadillac CT5-V Blackwings and CT4-V Blackwings on the Cadillac web site. After the restricted manufacturing “Darkish Emerald Frost” automobiles bought out, I vacillated between “Rift Metallic,” and “Electrical Blue,” however by no means actually discovered a shade I used to be 100% bought on. 2023 introduced “Maverick Noir Frost” and a handful of different choices, however I actually wished to see one thing like BMWs “Thundernight Metallic.”

For 2024, a brand new crop of colours has emerged, and whereas none of them are purple, and greater than half of them are type of greyscale, there’s now a yellow choice, “Cyber Yellow Metallic” pictured above on the CT4-V Blackwing.

It jogs my memory of one other good BMW shade, Phoenix Yellow however with just a little extra pop, and extra importantly, it aligns with my general principle of automotive paint, which boils right down to “automobiles with a traditional type issue get wilder colours, and supercars and hypercars ought to be beige.” I in all probability wouldn’t do a yellow Ferrari, however a yellow sports activities sedan from an American producer? Sure, I imagine that is sensible.
