    Only allocation of 250 of each sold out in 2 minutes after the debut at 7 PM eastern time on Tuesday - set to arrive in August - my local Caddy dealer has a CT4 V Blackwing coming that I will test drive.

    Damn. My internet went down, just as I was about to pre-order one.

    Rear wheel drive, summer only tires and over 680 HP... It will LOOK fantastic in the snow.
    Just don't expect to go anywhere.

    I would expect AWD to put that kind of power to the road.

    BTW... $700 for a pair of rear tires... Through TireRack.
    But who cares about tire cost on a vehicle this expensive. :confused:

    That's not bad, I think my rear tires cost closer to a grand lol. Certainly limits the burnouts

    I've been impressed with how much snow tires worked on my '96 Impala SS and '08 TBSS. Back in the '70s I drove my '74 Camaro through 5 winters, and always put snow tires on the back during the winter. Helped a lot back then, too.

    I think if you're spending $85K+ on a car $700 tires wouldn't be much of a deterrent.

    Nice car but well outside how much I'd be willing to spend, but I'll bet the sell every single one.

    Why only make 250 of each? Doesn't seem like it would be worth the effort involved in incorporating the limited parts into the assembly line sequence, promotional video production, etc.

    I want those seats in my Camaro!

    I wonder if they are building them for a Production Touring Car class so they can bring this design to the track.
