- V-Series Cadillac(s)?
- '23 CT5-V BW 6spd
That sounds great. I noticed the electric blue safety car, so that was good to see. I spent 4 years in Daytona while going to college and went to a lot of the races during those years - great times. Would love to bring our little RV back down and hit the races again!I did. It was my 12th time going in last 13 years. I go to the 24 hours of Daytona every year also. First time going for more then Saturday to see the WEC race held Friday since they started doing the doubleheader with the IMSA 12hrs.
A lot of Cadillac/Blackwing activation at the event this year. Cadillac is commemorating a year long celebration starting this month with 20 years of the v series sub brand that began with the debut of the CTS-V race car in 2004 at a SCCA race at sebring before the inaugural production model was launched. Because of all this Cadillac was named the track/race’s official luxury vehicle. So as a result more Cadillac/Cadillac racing branding and billboards throughout the track. The safety car was a ct5 v blackwing. The blackwings have actually been the safety cars for many of the IMSA races since last year. Also they had a Cadillac ride and drive experience for people to test drive all the v series cars.
They definitely don't have the refined look of a Lloyd's mat, that's for sure - had them in my last 2 Z06's and loved them. I have a bunch of Weathertech in our other rigs and like them for keeping everything clean, so I thought I'd give these a try - got them free using some GM points, so that was nice.I'm not a fan of rubber/all weather mats. They just seem cheap looking. I usually upgrade with Lloyd's deep pile mats but of course they don't have the coverage. I've softened my opinion after getting my 5 with Cadillac floor and trunk mats. They are extremely Heavy and do not slip, slide, or move around and when dry are reasonably grippy and cushioned. Just that they make me think all terrain as opposed to luxury or sport.
Yeah, as shbox said, you can get it separately. It's nice and heavy too, so I think it'll hold up well.Can you buy the trunk mat come separately or, do you have to get the set?
