2016 Cadillac CTS-V Clears its Supercharged V8 Throat on the Nurburgring

While we wait for the Detroit Motor Show to open its doors in January and finally get a proper look at the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, the performance four-door sedan bruiser has been recently caught on film dropping hot laps on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. And we’re happy to announce you’re in for quite a big treat.

Because Cadillac is in the middle of reinventing itself as a brand and its product lineup, both engineers and designers are making quite an effort with the newest lot of Caddies. That’s why the most potent vehicle in Caddy’s upcoming lineup – the gorgeous 2016 CTS-V, is going to pack some serious grunt under its angular hood adorned by a big central vent.

In terms of aesthetics, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V will look pretty much like the 2014 model year, but with a few modern touches added here and there and a bit more oomph squeezed from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 powerhouse, similar to the same engine that’s propelling the 2015 Corvette Z06. It’s mum’s guess just how many ponies will be sent to the rear wheels, but do expect north of 600 horsepower.
