Don’t you just love the current horsepower war the car business is in right now? Mark our words, we are living in what might be the final golden-era of the petro-burning automobile.
With this in mind, Cadillac’s just revealed their latest V-Sport-trimmed car. For those not in the know, V-Sport is like BMW’s M-Performance cars or Mercedes’ AMG light versions. The get many go-fast goodies and more power but not the full gambit with aero, monster brakes and the likes.
As part of this reveal, the CT6 is shown for the first time with a facelift inspired by the Escala concept introduced at the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2016.
The CT6 V-Sport does however gain an all-new Caddy-only twin-turbocharged 4.2-litre V8 that is good for 550-horsepower and 627 lb.-ft. of torque. A non-V-Sport version of this engine will develop “only” 500-horsepower and 553 torques. A 10-speed automatic transmission and AWD will do their best to keep power under control.
We can wait to drive this beast and also find out where this engine will end up… The next Escalade? The C8 Corvette? The possibilities are numerous!
