It seems that a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V prototype that was testing on the Nurburgring earlier today, lost control and got scuffed up pretty badly in the front and driver’s side. Everything from the headlight in the front to the tail light in the rear was damaged.
As reported by Jalopnik, according to David Caldwell, Cadillac Communications Manager:
Just spoke to the team, as yes we are testing in Germany now. The good news is the situation you asked about was thankfully minor – the driver is fine, no issues. In fact I’m told the car involved only had a brief respite, no immediate repairs even, and rejoined the testing. I think a few bruises to bodywork was the full extent. More or less normal. And not unusual in such a long and intricate circuit, in a very thorough series of tests, that you’d have some sort of imperfection. We have a very experienced team with proven and precise methods.
