We can’t think of a better way to celebrate excellence since 1902.

The Cadillac brand is one of the most storied and important automotive brands in the United States. Known for 120 years for making beautiful and iconic luxury cars that hold importance in American history in every era through the 20th century and into the 21st, Cadillac has been an American cultural icon for a long time. To celebrate 120 years of Cadillac, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing has gotten a 120th Anniversary treatment, which debuted at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction this past weekend. Minutes later, it sold for $250,000.

The car is already a piece of history and is undoubtedly going to become even more important as a commemoration of the history of Cadillac and the American car industry. To make it stand out as such, Cadillac has serialized the VIN of each of the 120 120th Anniversary CT5-V Blackwings with each year of Cadillac’s existence, from 1902 to 2022. The sill plates, B pillars, gear shifter, and steering wheel all show historical Cadillac touches and remind you of the fact that it is a limited edition 120th Anniversary edition Cadillac. And with a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood and a top speed of over 200 mph, driving it will remind you that it’s a world-class performance sedan.
