Beauty Meets Beast: The Cadillac CT6 V-Sport Is Your Ticket to the Dark Side

Standard

The Cadillac CT6 V-Sport takes the brand’s flagship model to a whole new level. With styling based on the Escala concept car, the CT6 V-Sport blends elegance and finesse with the heart of a muscle car. The result is a luxury vehicle with aggressive styling features and firepower that bring the CT6 to a plateau other carmakers probably didn’t see coming.

“Cadillac V-Sport is the embodiment of our passion to deliver an exhilarating driving experience without compromises,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “The all-new CT6 V-Sport provides the perfect balance of performance and luxurious refinement.”

The heart of the CT6 V-Sport is an all-new 4.2-liter twin turbo V8 pumping out an estimated 550 horsepower and 627 lb.-ft. of torque. Other performance enhancements include a mechanical limited-slip differential for increased traction, magnetic ride control, and an exhaust system with active valves that decrease backpressure but enhance sound. A Hydra-Matic 10-speed transmission, along with all-wheel drive, are also part of the CT6 V-Sport. Bringing all this to a standstill is a Brembo four-piston braking system.

The CT6 V-Sport also comes with active rear steer, AWD torque split, and active exhaust valve calibration.

Pricing and availability for the Cadillac CT6 V-Sport has yet to be announced.
