7 months ago I ordered a CT4 Blackwing. Lightly optioned, manual trans, a drivers car. It came in today. When I ordered it I was driving a 2017 ATS-V. Since then I traded the ATS-V for a 2017 CTS-V.
hmm, I think I prefer to keep the CTS-V and let the CT4 Blackwing go

If you were not blown away by the CT4 BW, then I agree, keep the V3.
I’m surprised, though, by the reviews of the CT4 BW.

Sounds like you should keep what you like better. Drive the BW a little bit to be sure you dont want then sell it for what will most likely be a small profit.

Think a 6MT CT5-V BW is calling your name.

Want raw power or better handling? That's what it boils down to.

Clarify for those of us who are NOT tuned in to the BW nomenclature…
The car you ordered in is the V8 or the lesser engine?

If it’s the V8 BW with Manual trans, buy it… it’s both the pinnacle and the last of the breed.
If it’s engine has LESS than 6.2 liters, leave it be
The CT4BW is the TTV6.

The V6 BW is like having a 440-sixpak RoadRunner... well yeah, its awesome; it's waaaaay better than the 383...and it's better than the 440 4bbl.... but it's not the Hemi.

Because, you see....they OFFERED the Hemi, and you don't have it. A TTV6 is badass in an NSX OR a GTR, because they didn't offer a V8. Don't shoot for 2nd place.

They also offered a GTX.

Damn nvm I see its the CT4 BW not CT5 BW... I misread. Keep the V8 brah. After the CT4 BW that may be it for firebreathing blown small blocks.

And my pick if I couldn't get a wing car!
My late brother had a 440-6 'Bird... and it was always,,,, dammit, not a Hemi

I have an '87 WE4 Regal Turbo T. Mechanically identical, debatably faster, almost visually identical and much rarer (1547 vs 20,000+) than the Grand National. But it's not a GN. :(


It's still mine though, lol. ;):D
