The all-new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V luxury performance sedan has a top speed of 201 mph from its supercharged 6.2L V-8 640 hp engine and 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm). Equipped with Cadillac's paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting, the CTS-V will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Cadillac’s latest CTS-V performance car is a monster, and now we can watch it eat a set of tires.

The brand has released the first video of the car, showing it running through an abandoned building and burning rubber all the way. The new CTS-V packs a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that pushes a monstrous 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels exclusively through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
