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/ http://www.autoblackzone.com/ http://www.luweh.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. http://luweh.com/ 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 factory 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 handling 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 deactivation). 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.
