Cadillac’s saloon cars are not dead just yet. In fact, GM is breathing new light to the 2020 CT4-V and CT5-V and will soon introduce high-performance versions of both cars.
Officially part of the Blackwing lineup, the two will represent the best Cadillac has to offer in terms of driver engagement and performance.
V-Series Blackwing models will ride on a specially-tuned chassis and will benefit from new vehicle technologies and engines.
Rumours have also surfaced hinting at a possible manual transmission version.
“The Blackwing name has come to represent the very best of Cadillac performance engineering, craftsmanship and technology,” said Brandon Vivian, Cadillac executive chief engineer. “The new CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing build on the brand’s respected legacy of ultimate-performance driving experiences and elevate them even further.”
Earlier this year, both Blackwing models have been spotted at various racetracks across the U.S. During testing at Virginia International Raceway, each car set “faster” lap times in comparison to ones set by the ATS-V and CTS-V.
Set to debut mid-2020, according to reports, the Blackwing Series Cadillac launch will instead take place later in the year or Q1 2021.
The delay is due to the current global situation.
