Unbelievably powerful

What do the Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, Lamborghini Gallardo, Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 all have in common? They make less power than the Cadillac CTS-V.

With a supercharged V8 engine, the V makes a whopping 556-horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough to deliver a 0-60 time of just 3.9 seconds. With every tap of the throttle, it lets loose a storm of acceleration and sound, and gets moving in a way that’s unbelievable for a car of its size.

It overwhelms with the thrill of the power and the noise it brings, and is a truly exciting experience. Put your foot down and it feels like a time machine, as every car around you seems to slow down while you sprint ahead of them.
