With decades of manufacturing luxury vehicles of all sizes, Cadillac now unveils its most powerful car to date, the V-Series Blackwing. Arriving in two iterations: CT4-V and CT5-V, the automobile brand ushers in the next generation of high-performance sedans.

The Middle East launch was celebrated with racing champion Amna Al Qubaisi setting a record time around Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit — making the CT5-V Blackwing “The Fastest Production Sedan” to complete the track.

As the most track-capable Cadillac in the brand’s roster, the latest models blend motorsport performance with craftsmanship to provide power to your everyday commute. With a top speed of nearly 200mph, the CT5-V is equipped with a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine that is capable of pushing 0-60mph in just 3.8seconds, unleashing an eye-watering 668 horsepower and 893nm torque at the flick of a red V-button.

As well as its undeniable power under the hood, the sleek exterior and luxury interior keep to Cadillac’s high-end appeal. Boasting features such as Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires developed exclusively for the vehicle, the CT5-V is also fitted with the largest factory-installed brakes in the brand’s history.

For more information on the latest CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing check out Cadillac’s website.
