Default Difference between c16 and high octane race gas?

As it says. What makes c16 so much better? Is it a fancy name for just a really high octane gas? (I understand the benefits of higher detonation resistance.) I am just wondering what or why it is called c16 instead of, just '110 octane' or whatever. Did a small search...but one could imagine how much 'This is how much power I got on c16..." would come up.

C16 is good for cars with cats.

It's totally safe to put in.

Plus it smells good.

Cat-safe, maybe, but according to the manufacturer, it's leaded:

C16 is the product name of high octane leaded gas made by VP. It is actually 117 octane.

Sunoco calls their very high octane (116 octane) race gas Sunoco Maximal.
