A new performance-inspired, limited-edition model featuring custom paint will join the Cadillac CTS Coupe and V-Series product lines this year.

The Silver Frost Edition will be a special run of 100 CTS-V Coupes featuring a special low-gloss matte paint finish.

“Some color hues, such as blues, greys and reds easily identify with performance and velocity,” said Michelle Killen, lead creative designer for exterior paints. “Both Silver Frost (and Stealth Blue) are very expressive but still true to the luxury and exclusivity that a Cadillac represents, which were driving factors in the creation of the color.”

The Silver Frost matte paint will be on collector-edition vehicles available through select Cadillac dealers across the country beginning in March.

In addition to the 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine delivering 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque, the Silver Frost CTS-V will offer optional features such as:

• Yellow or red Brembo brake calipers
• High polished or satin graphite wheels
• Suede-covered steering wheel and shift knob

The desired finish on the Silver Frost CTS-V coupe was achieved by applying a “30-gloss” clear coat to the paint, as opposed to the “80-gloss” found in standard paint finishes. The paint will still emit a low “sparkle” when certain lights reflect off it, but the finish will be distinctly “matte.”

The paint texture will also be noticeably different to the touch as the finish will be slightly less smooth. This is a desirable trait for fans of matte paint finishes. The paint is engineered to be as durable as normal paint but requires special attention for cleaning. The vehicle should be hand washed only.

“We’ve spent a significant amount of time developing these colors so that owners don’t have to deviate too much from their normal maintenance routines yet still have a distinct and dramatic finish to their performance vehicle,” Killen said.
