Last week? Aren't they going to "batch" paint and build? If so, shouldn't most G7W orders be built in that batch? I think my dealer ordered one or two.

I'll find out more when I continue to update the Registry.

Correction to my post above, it's the first CT5-V Blackwing with a manual transmission in Dark Emerald Frost...

Can I ask if anyone knows, are all of the Emerald Green CT5's being painted all at once? Or do the manufactures change colors regularly during each week as orders come in?

That's what I asked above. My understanding was, they were going to "batch" paint at once. Like they do (or used to do) with Corvettes.

My dealer stated the same - that they would do two batches/rounds of production with this paint since the matte paint had a very short shelf life, so once mixed the paint needs to be sprayed within days.

Nope. That color was not available for the initial 250
This is an interesting detail that dismantles some of the internet chatter that Cadillac is not producing any cars beyond the initial 250 this year. That's clearly not true, which I'm happy about since it keeps my flicker of hope alive haha.

Yes. Only one so far:

thanks Rob...looks like one with no carbon fiber packages...hopefully they have built the first batch of green ones and are just waiting for the carbon fiber parts to fit on the cars. fingers crossed
