    Last month, following an IM conversation between myself and Autoblog's Test Fleet Manager, Steve Ewing, I tweeted this. I love the Supersonic Blue paint GM offers on the Chevrolet Corvette, you see, and I think it'd look killer on the Cadillac CTS-V. I hadn't given it much thought until yesterday, when I attended a Cadillac event at the Monticello Motor Club. Parked outside the clubhouse next to the pit road, was the car you see above, a new CTS-V sedan finished in Supersonic Blue with satin graphite wheels. Inside, the Recaro seats and door trim matched the exterior. It's wicked.

    I immediately asked Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell if this was a new paint color for the 2012 model. It's not. Not yet, at least. Caddy prepped the car and brought it out to Monticello to gauge reaction to the color before a final decision is made. If it winds up happening, it'll likely be a new special edition, in the vein of this year's Black Diamond package. Personally, I think this is a no-brainer, and said as much to the Caddy reps on hand. Maybe you think differently, though, so here's your shot to weigh in.

    Use the poll below to tell Cadillac if you think they should have the CTS-V go Supersonic. Before you vote, just imagine the Sport Wagon done up like this. Got that mental image? Good. Now go vote.

    Interesting that they have the satin graphite wheels but don't have the yellow calipers... just another tip-off that it's a custom vehicle

    (since normally those two options are packaged together - at least they used to be)

    I like the exterior color but I did not like the brownish wood color trim in replacement of the piano black! They should use either simulated carbon fiber or "real" carbon fiber or aluminium trim. The shade of gray is not too attractive! The blue should be extended to the seats too. Cadillac should look at Audi/BMW grey and copy it! Finally, if the wheels are chromed black; the rest of the exterior trim should be BLACK to match the wheels including the crest and grid, tailpipes and vents - that would look fantistic!
