The North American based automaker Cadillac is believed to offer a V-Series version of the recently unveiled CT6 flagship sedan.
The officials within Cadillac are mostly pretty quiet about their upcoming products but it seems that a hotter version of the recently unveiled Cadillac CT6 is believed to get a V-Series version. The announcement has been made by Mark Reuss, the executive vice president of Global Product Development for General Motors, in a recent interview with Autoblog. According to our source, the Omega platform on which the new CT6 is riding is capable of underpinning a high-performance version of the model. The only thing keeping it back at this time is the fact that the carmaker isn’t entirely sure that there is a market for the CT6-V.
The current Cadillac CTS-V, the smaller brother of the CT6, is coming with a 6.2 liter V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 640 HP (477 kW) and 855 Nm (630 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the CTS-V needs 3.8 seconds and top speed stands at 322 km/h (200 mph). The current CT6 is coming, in its range topping version, with the 3.0 liter V6 twin turbo engine, producing a total of 400 HP (298 kW) and 543 Nm (400 lb-ft) of torque. A possible version of the CT6-V will also bring, besides the more powerful engine, some chassis upgrades, better brakes, better suspension system, a body kit and some tweaks made to the cabin.
