Refueled: Return of the CTS-V Episode 4: Race Ready
It all leads up to this. The innovative design, the painstaking detail, the
rigorous testing — everything is riding on this defining moment. The time
has come for Cadillac to return to racing and take hold of its rightful
place on the track. See the CTS-V racecar rip through the road in rubber
melting action as it prepares for its monumental return to the SCCA World
Challenge on March 25th.
Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept
The Ciel -- pronounced "C-L" the French translation for sky -- is a
four-seat convertible that opens a new chapter in Cadillac's design and
product ascent. Ciel is a new expression of Cadillac's historical grandeur,
as well as a celebration of open-air motoring.

Some clips of me driving R8's at Infineon Raceway (Sears Point) during the
Audi Sportscar Driving Experience / Driving School.
We had a class of drivers of various abilities, so we really weren't
pushing that hard. At most 7/10 or so in the corners and 5/10 or so (LOL)
braking. It was a nice easy drive, but still a very enjoyable experience.
We also had seat time in TT-S's, S4's, and S5's.

2016 Cadillac CTS V 640 HP Top Speed of 200 mph
2016 Cadillac CTS-V
Cadillac 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. http://autoblackzone.com/
"V-Series represents the very best of the Cadillac brand - the pinnacle of
our design and technical capabilities," said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac
president. "The new CTS-V is the most compelling example of Cadillac's
product substance and brand trajectory. The new CTS-V soars into the
stratosphere of the most exhilarating luxury cars."
Comprehensive updates make the new CTS-V essentially two cars in one: a
luxury sedan with sophisticated road manners and a track-capable sports car
straight from the factory. It also introduces a new supercharged 6.2L V-8
engine backed by Cadillac's paddle-shift eight-speed automatic
transmission, featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting.
With more horsepower and torque than
the Mercedes-Benz 5.5L biturbo V-8 and
the BMW M-series 4.4L TwinPower (twin-turbo) V-8, the new CTS-V is capable of 0-60
performance in 3.7 seconds.
Track-honed design, chassis and suspension elements complement the
supercharged powertrain and elevate CTS-V's capability, performance and
driver control to new thresholds, while enabling track driving without
modifications or special procedures. Key performance technologies include:
Standard carbon fiber hood and available carbon fiber vent, front splitter,
rear spoiler and rear diffuser for greater aerodynamic performance
Brembo high-performance brake system developed to provide durability,
consistency and the capability for track-day performance straight from the
Third-generation Magnetic Ride Control delivering 40-percent faster damping response
Integrated chassis controls that provide balanced performance for touring
and the track, including competition-spec Performance Traction Management
Structural stiffness increased by 25 percent for improved ride and superior
Driver-selectable modes electronically calibrate performance variables for
touring, sport and track driving conditions
Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires with tri-compound technology offering
excellent grip with extended wear
An interior with performance-oriented, sueded microfiber accents and
matte-finish carbon fiber trim and available RECARO high-performance seats
for spirited driving
Advanced safety and parking technologies, including a front curb-view
camera system that provides a visual cue of curbs to protect the front
splitter; automatic parking assist to find and steer into parallel or
perpendicular parking spots; side blind zone alert, forward collision
alert, lane keep assist and rear cross traffic alert.+
More powerful supercharged V-8 engine
The power behind the new CTS-V's capability is an all-new, more powerful
6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that makes more power more efficiently than
the previous Cadillac supercharged engine. It employs a more-efficient,
more-compact 1.7L Supercharger and
matches it with direct injection and Active Fuel Management (cylinder
The Supercharger's rotors are smaller in
diameter than the previous supercharged engine, allowing higher maximum rpm
that enables power-enhancing Boost
to be generated earlier in the rpm band. That Boost is achieved more efficiently via a more
direct discharge port that creates less turbulence, reducing heat and
speeding airflow into the engine.
The Cadillac supercharged engine also has several unique features designed
to support its high output and the greater cylinder pressures created by
forced induction, including Rotocast A356T6 aluminum cylinder heads that
are stronger and handle heat better than conventional aluminum heads, and
lightweight titanium intake valves.
The CTS-V's complementing eight-speed automatic is tuned for world-class
shift-response times. Smaller steps between gears keep the engine within
the sweet spot of the rpm band, making the most of the output of the
supercharged engine for exhilarating performance and greater efficiency.
The new 8L90 transmission offers full manual control via steering wheel
paddles, and Performance Algorithm Shifting to deliver shift performance
that rivals the dual-clutch/semi-automatic transmissions found in many
luxury performance sedans - but with the smoothness and refinement that
come with a conventional automatic fitted with a torque converter.
