Last year when Cadillac introduced the sports sedan CT4-CT5 V and-V, many fans were openly disappointed: “charged” novelties markedly inferior in power to their predecessors – the ATS-V and CTS-V. Now the manufacturer intends to correct this defect: the company officially announced that both models will get extreme modification Blackwing.
However, the use of the eponymous engine should not count as far as we know, engineers are unable to put the mighty 4.2-liter V8 from the CT6-V model. Most likely, CT4-V, Blackwing will get a 3.6-liter V6 with two turbines, and CT5-V Blackwing – 6.2-liter V8 with a mechanical supercharger. The ATS-V and CTS-V these units gave out 470 HP and 649, respectively.
In the Cadillac said that the new sportsedanov much faster pass the track Virginia International Raceway, but specific figures are not disclosed. Also, the manufacturer promised that each model of the Blackwing will be available with a “stick”, while the CT4 and CT5, including the V-version, are offered only with the automatic. In addition to more powerful engines, announced a new chassis settings and some advanced technology – without specifics. Both models will be limited edition, but the volume, again, is not disclosed.
