My dealer was able to confirm my order shortly after noon today. By 12:45 pm 214 had been sold and by midafternoon the 275 were sold. The way Cadillac did this kept the big dealers from gobbling them up as stock units. I’m excited. Been waiting for a companion to my 2005 xlr!

There sold out now

"It moves fast. No joke. We’re sorry that you missed the window to reserve a CT6-V. But don’t worry, there’s still time to visit your Cadillac dealer and experience the newly redesigned 2019 CT6."

Soon to be on EBAY at a ridiculously inflated price. lol

I'm pretty depressed about this. I was waiting so long for one; was looking forward to the spring; couldn't wait to see it side-by-side with our 2018; was eager to start haggling a bit... and now. it's all over. Ah well!

I would venture to say that if the rumors of the CT6 demise turn out to be premature, you may end up seeing more V models built.

It is my understanding that the 275 CT6-V's are limited to pre-orders; that may leave opportunity for more orders (and production) after introduction begins. After all the Blackwing is a hand built engine so some exclusivity will be guaranteed (just for that fact alone). Below is a copy of the press release:

NEW YORK – Cadillac announced that starting today customers can now request a preorder for the first-ever CT6-V. Preorders for the V-Series version of the top-of-range sedan, arriving in mid-2019, will be capped at 275 for the United States.
The 2019 Cadillac CT6-V starts at $88,790.*
“The 2019 CT6-V marks the expansion of the V-Series sub-brand and is the proof point of Cadillac’s commitment to build high-performance vehicles as we continue our product offensive,” said Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac. “Fans of Cadillac will see high-performance variants across our portfolio.”
At the heart of the 2019 CT6-V is the all-new hand-built Blackwing™ V-8, which was announced in March 2018. The Cadillac exclusive 4.2 L twin-turbo V-8 elevates the CT6-V’s performance and delivers a Cadillac-estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW) and 627 lb-ft of torque (850 Nm)**.
Purchase of the 2019 Cadillac CT6-V includes tuition and luxury accommodation at the 2-day Cadillac V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain (offer valid for 1 year, reserved for the original owner of each new, unused model).
* Editors’ note: Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price excludes tax, title, license, delivery, dealer fees, and optional equipment.
**Cadillac estimated. Horsepower/Torque pending SAE certification.

I would agree!

I gave email November 29 last year for emails from Gm about the V. I received a email welcoming me on the same day.

Email header was.....

You're among the first to know everything about the newly redesigned 2019 CT6 and the first-ever CT6-V

It also continues with.....

The evolution does not stop there—in Spring 2019, enter the first-ever CT6-V featuring Cadillac's exclusive Twin Turbo V8 engine. The 2019 CT6-V is the embodiment of our passion for exhilarating driving experiences without compromise. It strikes the perfect balance between luxury, technology and thrilling performance.


Spring 2019 ? Hmmm NOT !

No email since! Nothing about 275 limited , nothing for see your dealer jan 10, First to know there sold out though.

I also had requested to be updated on the CT6-V information via email and like others had received information indicating that the car would be available in mid 2019.
So obviously I was taken by surprise when pre-ordering became suddenly available without notice to those requesting information in advance.
I just got off the phone with Cadillac customer service regarding this issue and the representative indicated that they have been receiving numerous calls from disappointed potential customers.
For what it’s worth she indicated that upper management is aware of this although it doesn’t seem that quota of 275
will be lifted. She did say that Cadillac was taken by surprise at how quickly they sold out.
So maybe if enough of us call and express our disappointment they will reconsider that 275 limit.... Just hoping.

Did the 275 CT6-V's have to be customer orders?
Or did every dealer order a few for stock?

What would stop a dealer from ordering for a few salesmen, but not require them to accept it?

I asked the same question of the dealer and he indicated that every CT6-V pre-order had to have a Specific customer initiated order manefest...No dealer initiated orders

Cadillac required the buyers name address phone number and email so I do not think dealers could order them as stock orders. They could not order them for employees of the dealership. The named buyer must take delivery and title. Any dealer violations would cause financial penalties to be imposed on the dealer. With the ct6 being continued after this model year I think they will continue the v series as well.

When I ordered mine I was told that Cadillac may be calling direct to confirm I'm real. No call yet, TPW of 4/1 - looking forward to it.

That probably means your order didn't really go through

Ditto. Same build week on my ct6v. If nothing changes mine should arrive in early May.
Don't jinx it - sometimes new models get "bayed" - basically gone over by a QA team to make sure all is good. My son got one of the first gen 6 Camaros, bayed for almost a month.

Cadillac is going to do a second limited production run of the ct6v on a presold basis but have upped the price 4K. Will be allocated by region for bonafide pre sold orders. No specific number released only that it will be a “small batch”.
