If you have been good all year, you might find billet aluminum in your stocking. That’s because Cadillac has confirmed the manual transmission Blackwing with a 3D-printed shifter. In a press release earlier today we learned that the latest in 3D printing have been used to (literally) cut through the headaches associated with offering a manual transmission. Items like wiring harnesses, the shifter, and new AC ducts are being manufactured at a fraction of what it cost in the old days.
The CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing sedans will arrive with the manual transmission as standard equipment, leaving the 10-speed automatic as an option. They also claim mention that advanced machine work has allowed the new gearbox to be stronger and quieter than any previous offering.
