The Cadillac CT5 V Blackwing is the All-American answer to the BMW M5 CS – 668 hp, almost 900 Nm of torque and a top speed of over 200 mph (322 km/h). The only difference is that the Blackwing is available from only 85,000 $ while the M5 CS costs over 180,000 $.

The CT5-V Blackwing uses an upgraded and hand-assembled 6.2L supercharged V-8 rated at 668 horsepower (498 kW) and 659 lb-ft of torque (893 Nm) and is offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 10-speed paddle shift automatic transmission.

Built on Cadillac’s racing heritage, the car was developed to be track-capable. That involved an intensive validation program, including wind tunnel testing, to ensure consistent performance during the most challenging track conditions.

In fact, functional aerodynamics, including an available carbon fiber aero package, contribute to the V-Series Blackwing models track prowess to support a variety of cooling needs for the cars’ respective engines, transmissions, axles and other supporting systems. The aero package on the CT4-V Blackwing delivers the highest downforce in V-Series production history.
