CTS-V Coupe Race Car Photography
Cadillac today released the first photographs of the CTS-V Coupe race car, which will debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday, Jan. 10. Cadillac announced last month it was re-entering the Sports Car Club of America World Challenge GT racing series for the 2011 season, which begins March 25-27 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Johnny O'Connell, a three-time GT1 champion in the America Le Mans Series, and Andy Pilgrim, who won the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT class in a Cadillac, will be behind the wheel of the CTS-V racecars. The first on-track tests will be conducted in late January at Sebring International Raceway.
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.

Pop quiz: Why would anyone take a Caddy for hot laps around a race track?
If you answered, "Because they can," you've likely made the acquaintance of
the 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport. Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman did just
that on a recent visit to GM's Milford Proving Ground in Michigan. Bragman
says the all-new longer, lower and wider CTS platform boasts clean,
distinctive exterior styling and a luxurious interior while its lightweight
chassis handles extremely well against the forces created by the "track
master's" 420-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6.

FORD VERTREK CONCEPT PREVIEWS A SLEEKER, SPORTIER AND MORE STYLISH COMPACT
SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE

appeal to customers around the globe; it signals the direction Ford will
take in developing a new global utility vehicle
• The concept features a stylish design, outstanding cargo space and a
1.6-liter EcoBoost™ engine
equipped with Ford Auto Start-Stop technology that could deliver
best-in-class fuel economy. These are key why-buys for customers around the
• Ford Vertrek concept is built on Ford's global C-segment platform,
which will underpin more than 2 million vehicles globally by 2012
DETROIT, Jan. 10, 2011 -- Ford Motor Company today unveiled its vision for
a sleeker, sportier and more stylish compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) at
the 2011 North American International Auto Show. The Ford Vertrek concept
previews the company's ambition for a next-generation, global compact SUV
that could lead the industry in both design and fuel efficiency.
The Ford Vertrek concept is based on Ford's global C-segment platform,
which includes the all-new Ford Focus range launching early in 2011 in
North America and Europe, plus the latest C-MAX and Grand C-MAX
multi-activity vehicles. It represents the vision of the company's top
design and engineering talent on how best to attract and satisfy future
sport utility vehicle customers around the world.
"Vertrek concept is a no-compromise solution we feel utility vehicle
customers will embrace around the world," said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group
vice president of Global Product Development. "It is a revolution compared
to what is typically seen in this segment in North America and is a stylish
evolution compared with products outside North America. This new design is
sleeker and more fuel efficient and delivers the capability, including
people and cargo volume, customers demand globally."
The Ford Vertrek concept combines the best of Ford's distinctive European
kinetic design styling and driving quality with outstanding levels of cargo
space, trailer-tow and off-road capability for North America, promising a
vehicle that meets the needs of next-generation compact utility vehicle
customers around the world.
The sleek appearance of the Ford Vertrek concept has been honed
aerodynamically to help support the program target of class-leading fuel
economy and low CO2 emissions and complement the high-tech powertrain
solutions Ford envisions.
Ford preliminary data show that a production vehicle based around the
Vertrek concept would be at least 5 percent more aerodynamically efficient
than current comparable Ford North American and European models, such as
the Escape and Kuga.
