Default 2016 CTS-V: 640 HP, 200 MPH Super Sedan

http://www.autoblog.com/2014/12/22/2...oit-auto-show/
Quote:
Ask the company's executive team, and they'll tell you "this is the maximum Cadillac V-Series." It's the 2016 CTS-V sedan, and it packs the very best of what's possible at Cadillac. And the company says it doesn't think "anyone thought it was possible that we could push [the CTS-V] this far."

The big news is what's underhood: General Motors' supercharged, 6.2-liter LT4 V8, tuned to 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. That's 10 hp and 20 lb-ft less than the monstrous Corvette Z06, and the result is the most powerful car Cadillac has ever produced. With rear-wheel drive, launch control and the eight-speed automatic transmission (sorry, folks – no more manual transmission here), Cadillac says the 2016 CTS-V will sprint to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 200 miles per hour.

Naturally, Cadillac's engineers say they have tuned the CTS-V to ensure it can put all that power to the ground with the most precision and poise possible. That starts with the excellent Magnetic Ride Control active damping system (with a claimed 40-percent increase in responsiveness)and a 25-percent increase in structural stiffness that should improve overall handling and steering. What's more, a high-performance Brembo brake package comes standard, as do 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in seriously sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that will reportedly offer 1g in lateral acceleration.

Cadillac also says that all changes to the bodywork are functional. That includes a carbon-fiber hood, front splitter, rear spoiler and diffuser that are super light and aid with aerodynamics and weight reduction – all of which will be available as an optional package for folks who like the exposed carbon look. Inside, it's more of what we're used to on lesser CTS models, but there's newly optional carbon fiber trim, microfiber suede upholstery trim, and some seriously awesome Recaro seats.

The all-new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V luxury performance sedan has a top speed of 201 mph from its supercharged 6.2L V-8 640 hp engine and 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm). Equipped with Cadillac’s paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting, the CTS-V will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.The all-new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V luxury performance sedan has a top speed of 201 mph from its supercharged 6.2L V-8 640 hp engine and 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm). Equipped with Cadillac’s paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting, the CTS-V will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Additionally, as we exclusively reported earlier, Cadillac will offer GM's Performance Data Recorder in the CTS-V. It records high-definition video with data overlays that's sharable via social media. Beyond that, Cadillac will offer the usual smattering of tech goodies, including Siri Eyes Free, OnStar with 4G LTE, CUE infotainment with navigation and Bose audio.

The CTS-V will launch later next year, following the debut of the smaller ATS-V. In the meantime, the sedan will officially bow at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in just a few weeks. Pricing has yet to be announced, but we assume it'll be revealed in the not-too-distant future. In any case, this thing looks seriously good, and to say we're stoked to drive it would be an understatement. This ought tobe the maximum Cadillac V-Series, indeed.

For like pretty close to a quarter million dollars adjusted for inflation probably, it could go almost that fast, yes.

I think it's pretty neat in theory, but it's gotten too big (obviously as the ATS has kind of replaced the old CTS in size). I prefer the ATS-V and wish it came with a little more HP. Plus, this motor is taking a lot of heat (pun intended) for going into limp mode on the ZO6 after short periods of time. I'd like to see how it fares in the long run.

It's aiming at the M5 and E63. The 6-speed option on the M5 is a relic that BMW threw in for the US, and I'm betting the take rate is extremely low.

That being said, I'm fairly certain the M5 and E63 come with real DCTs, so it would be interesting to see how the 8-speed in this stacks up with those.

That tacked-on look of the aero bits are just that, tacky. At the least, GM should make the effort to paint the rear spoiler body color.

Exhaust Sounds mean.



from the article:
It was recorded by the Car&Driver magazine crew during the CTS-V reveal event in an enclosed space. While it's only a few seconds long, the audio sampler gives us an idea of what to expect when the car makes its full video debut in the coming days or weeks.

8 pictures and video in the gallery

The F10 M5 has BMW's DCT, but the E63 comes with MB's pretty meh AMG SpeedShift MCT. It's essentially their 7AT with a wet clutch in place of the torque converter. It doesn't perform nearly as well as a proper DCT like PDK, DCT, or DSG.

that's another whole topic, some articles praise it ( 8 speed) other articles I read state it was not up to snuff esp on the track..

And made official at the Detroit Auto Show. Would have been nice to have an ATSV at the show too.

Or the M5 in 2005 - did 205 delimited if memory serves.

Hopefully this V doesn't pull timing as badly as the Z06. Whether it's cooling or programming related, they are losing power doing back to back runs.

Saw on tele last night the first production model 2016 CTS-V sell at BJ for $170k. Also, 1 of 30 brand new m5's sold for $700k.





Edit: I guess these big numbers were for charity. Save the whales.

This is the Holden the US can't get as a Chevy. Really, this should be in Chevy skin, but they can charge a premium for it under the Caddy name.
