Cadillac today introduced the 2016 CTS-V, the most powerful product in the brand’s 112-year history and the newest entry in the elite class of the world’s highest-performing luxury cars.
Launching in late summer with 640 horsepower (477 kW), 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm) and a top speed of 200 mph, the new CTS-V reaches higher than its predecessors, leading Cadillac’s product-driven expansion and elevation. It is the third generation of the acclaimed luxury sports sedan that launched the elite V-Series a decade ago – and redefined Cadillac for a new generation of enthusiasts.
2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Special Edition is the last CTS-V Coupe before the next-generation models arrive next year. The production of the limited special-edition model will consist of 500 limited-edition cars available during the second half of 2014. 2015 CTS-V Coupe marks the last chapter of the current model before the next generation of the V-Series debuts next year.
The new vehicle shares the high-performance technology of its predecessors. It includes Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and the 556-horsepower (415kW) supercharged V-8 engine. CTS-V Coupe is the most dramatic model in the V-Series range of high-performance luxury models. It blends the personal 2+2 layout with a drivetrain vetted on Germany’s famed Nürburgring track.
The new 2012 Camaro might get a few extra horses under the bonnet if what Camaro5 reports is true. The new horsepower will find its way into the V6 powerplant for the sports coupe version. The new engine, badged “LFX”, looks like a significant improvement over the already powerful LLT V6 found in LS and LT Camaros.
The mill is described as “LFX 3.6L SIDI, DOHC, VVT, E85 MAX, Alum GM”, so it should still displace only 3.6-liters, just like the current V6 Camaro. It’s not yet clear if this is the standard model or some kind of high-performance race car for the road, but we like the figures either way. It even comes packed with advanced features, like Spark-Ignition Direct-Injection, Dual Overhead Cams, Variable Valve Timing, and E85 capability. Read more!
GeigerCars from Germany released an upgrade program for the Cadillac CTS-V,
coinciding with the American performance saloon’s European launch. The four-door Cadillac
with the tapered bonnet is powered by a 6.2-liter eight-cylinder engine, developing 564 horsepower and a maximum torque of 747 Nm.
Under the massive power dome hood are hidden the large intercooler and the compressor. Thanks to several tweaks here and there, such as an increase in air charge pressure, GeigerCars managed to lift the power up to 619 horsepower and raised the maximum torque to 850 Nm, which means a top speed of over 330km/h thanks to a shortened fifth and sixth gear.
General Motors released photos of the forthcoming Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, a supercharged version of the luxury coupe introduced a few weeks ago at the Los Angeles auto show.
The announcement may not be the greatest of timing. Oil rose to above $81 on Monday. And in India, Toyota and Honda unveiled subcompact concepts at the New Dehli auto expo. The release of a new gas-swilling muscle sedan will not warm the hearts of Americans.
