Since I drove them back in 2021, I’ve spent a lot of time configuring Cadillac CT5-V Blackwings and CT4-V Blackwings on the Cadillac site. After the limited production “Dark Emerald Frost” cars sold out, I vacillated between “Rift Metallic,” and “Electric Blue,” but never really found a color I was 100% sold on. 2023 brought “Maverick Noir Frost” and a handful of other options, but I really wanted to see something like BMWs “Thundernight Metallic.”

For 2024, a new crop of colors has emerged, and while none of them are purple, and more than half of them are kind of greyscale, there is now a yellow option, “Cyber Yellow Metallic” pictured above on the CT4-V Blackwing.

It reminds me of another good BMW color, Phoenix Yellow but with a little more pop, and more importantly, it aligns with my overall theory of automotive paint, which boils down to “cars with a normal form factor get wilder colors, and supercars and hypercars should be beige.” I probably wouldn’t do a yellow Ferrari, but a yellow sports sedan from an American manufacturer? Yes, I believe that makes sense.

And while the CT5-V BW looks incredible in say, “Summit White” (below), I’d have to do my part to fight the greyscaling of the American automotive palette.
