I spotted this one today. I don't recall ever seeing one in this color. Is it a limited run? :confused:

BLUE ICE, or BLUE DIAMOND tricoat, its almost like a lavender blue, very rare color, seen it once at a dealership as it was being delivered?
This appears to be a PERFOMANCE dts... going by the rims... but when looked closer to the top of the car, no sunroof...

I think sunroof was $1200.00 option on Performance.

Doesn't need a sunroof to be Performance, at least it didn't for my '08. But as for the color, the CTS had a similar blue called Sunset blue, but I think it was lighter than this. In late 2007, before I ordered my car, I saw a '06/'07 DTS in the Atlanta area that was not quite as dark as Blue Chip but not quite as light as this blue. It was heavily metallic--with lots of bronze undertones-- and looked gorgeous. But have no idea what the color was...nor did my dealer. I wonder if GM had regional colors floating around.....

I've seen several of the pictured blue at the dealer and decided I only liked it when matched with Vogue WSW tires and chrome wheels.

Blue Ice was a light blue and only offered in 2006 that I can tell.

Saw a color similar to this on a DTS Platinum at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year.

That colour is Blue Diamond Tricoat. It was only available for about six months in calendar year 2008. Very rare colour, with bronze metallic flakes rather than aluminum. I've never seen a CTS in it but never a DTS.

Yep. It's a WILD color. Lots of flake to it and it really sparkles in the sunlight. Not my cup of tea, but I applaud Caddy for at least offering unusual colors.

Looks like it.... but very hard to tell the true color of it because its inside the showfloor.
