Anticipation builds as Cadillac prepares what might become its fastest car ever.
So far, Cadillac has impressed with their mid-range V models.
Recently, we’ve sampled both the 2020 Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V and have found them to exceed our expectations. Be it design, performance, or value, both Caddies deliver styling and a driving experience that would normally command way more money upfront. The CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing should wipe the floor with the competition.

It’s expected that the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will be powered by a supercharged 6.2-litre V8, the same that once served the now-defunct CTS-V, according to Cadillac Society. Under its broad bonnet, it produced no less than 640 horsepower and 630 lb.-ft. of torque. The last CTS-V was available only with an 8-speed automatic transmission however the generation before it was offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Given the video that was shared on c_zr1’s Instagram account, it seems very clear that the row-your-own-gears transmission is back. A 10-speed automatic will surely also be on the menu. From the video and images, we can see that the CT5 is beefed up and with a far more complex and deep front fascia. The rear spoiler is also larger than the CT5-V we drove recently.
