This might be what it finally takes to separate the words "Cadillac" and "chrome" in the collective unconscious. Matte finishes are all the rage in Europe right now, but it's generally only European cars that get the treatment. Now a German tuner, unimaginatively named Cam Shaft, has given the matte treatment to the CTS-V, and it sure worked. The paint is matte white, but what's impressive is that the chrome trim has been replaced with matte black, including the wheels and even the lug nuts.
Attention has been paid to the engine as well, and thanks to an engine software upgrade as well as a larger air intake, this CTS-V is now putting out 630 horsepower. Total cost for all of these modifications comes in at less than 10,000 Euros, which might sound steep, but considering the kind of prices tuners usually charge, it's a steal.
