    Ordered mine in late October. Was built on 3-10-2022 . Picking it up at dealership tomorrow !! Using my GM Card points shaved off $2000. Out the door price is just a tad under $100k.

    I found the video on You Tube. Look up Konns Vlogs. He shows that the car is limited to 4500 rpms redline until you hit 500 miles on the odometer and then it jumps to 6500 redline.

    There aren’t any at dealers to even test drive ! The ones you see are only available for journalist and car TV shows to do a review. You can find regular CT5’s and 4’s at dealers……but not the same in power as a Blackwing.

    My dealer said that my car is “4B00” Bayed. I’m guessing that they parked it and are awaiting more parts. Looking forward to the 4200 code.

    I heard the number of 1500 last year , when GM said 2022 would be the last year of V8 engines. (Now known to be not true.) When I heard that, I said to myself that I have to try and get me one of them, if possible. I ordered it October and was told by my dealer/owner that they have no clue on who will be able to order one. If you Google the question ….how many 2022 CT5-V Blackwings will be built….it responds with an answer from Oct. 4th that “no more than 3000 total units” between the CT4-V and CT5-V will be built. I believe I saw on TV that they wanted to build 1500 of each. They are now saying that for 2023 only 120 units will be built as 120th Anniversary Editions. If you do the math , Cadillac started in 1902 and 2023 is actually 121 years.

    The engine is a Gm LT4 model. 6.2 litre. Same engine as the Corvette LT1.

    I am beginning to get annoyed with Cadillac. First they announce that 2021 Blackwings will be a limited run of 125 units. Then 2022 is supposed to be the “final” run of 1500 units. Now 2023 is going to have 125 units. Cadillac is pulling the same BS stunt that Dodge did when they made 2500 units of the “limited edition” Shaker hood. People paid extra for the privilege and then the next year they went and made “Un-numbered” Shakers by the thousands. Makes their “limited edition” purchase not so limited anymore.

    I went to my dealer and he gave me a “locator” sheet of paper that had a VIN# on it that he said was assigned to my order. I went onto cadillac.com and searched many dealer inventories. There are now alot of dealers showing CT5-V Blackwings that are “In Transit”. This tells me that they are definitely back into production.

    Ordered mine in October 2021 and just received word on 3-12-2022 that it is built or was being built. Should take delivery sometime late April. Summit white/ automatic, no carbon. I’m just happy that I was able to secure one.

    My buddy has a car on order with manual xmsn and he wanted the carbon fibre package. They told him that carbon packages are all still on hold. Mine is being built as we speak. Hopefully delivery in April. I didn’t order any carbon fibre.

    I leave stuff like that to my auto electrician. If I did it, my car would catch fire.

    Hello all ! I was contacted by my local Caddy dealer and told that 2022 CTv-5 Blackwing (Summit white/automatic) was being built and should be delivered sometime in April. Did not order all the bells and whistles (like carbon fibre package) and will hopefully actually receive my car. I ordered the car in October 2021 without a deposit. The dealer owner is a friend of the family (BONUS) !! Told I would be paying MSRP of $93,385 + tax and fees. Looks like my 67 Caddy convertible will soon be getting a little brother. Figured I join the Forum and get up to speed.
