2018 Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition performance figures
Power is drawn from a hearty supercharged 6.2-litre V8 petrol motor rated at a whopping 640 horsepower and 855 Nm of torque. This allows the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition to zip to 100 km/h in a respectable 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 321 km/h.
Mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the model also features cylinder deactivation, and Cadillac’s premium Performance Traction Mangement system that allows owners to select from five track derived modes and a launch control function.
Cadillac has confirmed 105 out of the 115 models will be available to purchase later this month. What they’ll do with the other ten models remains a mystery. One or two models will without a doubt be retained by GM.
Prices start at $103,885 or AED 381,580 in the US.
