    Looks won't matter when all you'll see are tail lights hur hur hur.

    I could do without the rear wing, maybe something more subtle like a lip spoiler, but then you'd have to rename it the Blacklip. I'd buy one if i could.

    Regardless of what it looks like, itís the badge that makes it ugly for a lot of people. You canít confidently tell your friends that you drive a domestic, that would be embarrassing! What would the neighbors in Aspen think when you roll up in a Cadillac Blackwing, the car is junk compared to a base model BMW or Mercedes. Itís all about status and clout, Cadillac canít provide that.
    You can think that, but that backend design is brutal. I'd drive an older CTS-V or ATS-V any day, even with the horrid simplified dash.

    People don't look at Cadillac like other domestics. I think you are using your own personal experiences (with your Jeep?) and getting the idea that people look down on domestics more than they do.

    Like your Vagon for example? Amazing.

    you dont buy a caddy for looks or status.

    you buy it for the drivetrain and the small group of GM chassis engineers that are among the best in the world.

    Ya know, I like the look of the rear, but more so the overdramatizing of the "ugliness" is hilarious.
    This isn't like the erratic lines of the GTR, and isn't the standard vanilla rectangles under the deck line. And then the hate on the decklid, yet the mouths can't get onto Benz cocks fast enough, with their shopping cart wings.
    It's original, and dope. Similar, to when Volvo introduced their new wagon/suv tail light design ~20 years ago.

    I'm hoping that the low option versions can be had in the $70's

    Hey man not all of us are in love with old people cars (Benz). In regards to the blackwings IMO the previous versions of ATS-V and CTS-V looked better on the outside as the weird vertical teardrop lines on the tail and headlights doesn't look overly appealing to me. The rest of the car is okay and I'm sure these will be great bang for the buck and exclusive seeing that not many people will buy them.

    Seems like they make the M5 for creampuffs, now.
