2016 Cadillac CTS-V has 640hp

The new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Hits 200 mph and is the most powerful Cadillac to date.

Cadillac introduced the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V today. The CTS-V is the most powerful Cadillac in the 112-year history of the car maker. The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is 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.

“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 2016 Cadillac 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 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is capable of 0-60 performance in 3.7 seconds.

There is no pricing information yet for the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. The new Cadillac will be shown at the NAIAS 2015.
