The new CT5-V Blackwing may be more advanced and have more power, but if you’re in the market for a V model from Cadillac that’s more practical, we’d suggest looking at this CTS-V Wagon currently up for auction through Bring A Trailer.

This particular CTS-V Wagon is a 2012 model and was purchased new by the seller from Moore Cadillac in Chantilly, Virginia. It is being sold with two extra sets of wheels, a spare sway bar, clean Carfax report, and a clean Virginia title and has 64,000 miles (~103,000 km) on the clock.

Immediately making the car stand out is the Crystal Red Tintcoat paint that accentuates the car’s design. The car is also sitting on a set of black 19-inch aluminum wheels with 255/40 Uniroyal Tiger Paw front tires and 285/35 Bridgestone Potenza S04 Pole Position tires at the rear. Like other CTS-V models there is an adaptive suspension with magnetic dampers. The owner of this car has also fitted Eibach lowering springs, the listing reveals.

While the interior isn’t quite as refined as the CT5-V’s cabin, it still looks to be a nice place to sit, thanks in part to the heated and ventilated leather Recaro front seats finished in Light Titan leather. Key features include a hardwired Escort SmartCord radar detector, dual-zone climate control, navigation system, and the factory stereo with Bluetooth and satellite radio.

Power comes courtesy of a supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 with an AirRaid cold air intake, a Corsa axle-back exhaust, C&R Racing heat exchanger, and a Stage 2 tuning kit from Mont Motorsports that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. At the time of writing, and with three days left into the auction, the highest bid was $22,250.

One of the most famous car emblems ever made, the Rolls-Royce ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ just celebrated its 110th anniversary.

The hood ornament, which adorns the front end of every car built at the brand’s Goodwood plant, was first registered as an intellectual property of Rolls-Royce on February 6, 1911.

Its design has remained the same over the years but, while the first cars from the British auto firm wore 7-inch (18-cm) tall emblems, today’s item, which is hidden in a special housing in the bonnet until the engine starts, has a height of ‘only’ 3.7 inches (9.5 cm).

Fitted to every Rolls-Royce vehicle since 1920 as standard, the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’, or ‘Flying Lady’ as it is also known, can be made of different materials, including frosted crystal or 24-carat gold, which is why certain examples can cost as much as a brand new small car.

“As an emblem, the Spirit of Ecstasy represents far more than just our company and our products”, said the Rolls-Royce CEO, Torsten Muller-Otvos. “To our customers, she is a potent symbol, instantly and universally recognized – of success, endeavor, achievement and standing. In her beauty, simplicity, elegance and rarity, she encapsulates everything our customers seek – and find – in their Rolls-Royce motor car.”

The Spirit of Ecstasy was inspired by a bronze statuette made by sculptor and illustrator Charles Sykes. Named the ‘Whisper’, it was created for his employer, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, a motoring pioneer and Rolls-Royce early adopter.

The Mercedes-Benz CL 500 was far from a track-day special when it was on sale yet despite that fact, one owner in the United States has seemingly tried to turn the car into a Time Attack weapon.

This particular CL 500 was recently spotted in New Jersey rocking one of the largest rear wings we’ve ever seen affixed to a car. Why, it looks even bigger than the wing used by the McLaren Senna GTR – and that one’s really big.

The wing doesn’t appear to be an off-the-shelf part and is handmade. It features towering uprights bolted down to the trunklid and looks to be made from sheets of steel or aluminum. As a Redditor points out, the wing has also been mounted backwards and probably fails to add any downforce to the car but instead operates as a massive airbrake, creating unnecessary drag.

The owner has made a handful of other modifications to the car, including the fitment of aftermarket wheels with chrome spokes and enlarged tailpipes.

Adding a rear wing to a car has long been popular among those trying to give their vehicles some added flair or improve its cornering prowess. Oftentimes, aftermarket rear wings can look quite nice, but that’s clearly not the case here.
