Discover more, and then sign up to be among the first to own the pinnacle of Cadillac track capability and road refinement.
Refinement magnified by power. The CT5-V Blackwing is powered by the highest output in Cadillac’s history: a 6.2L Supercharged V8 hand-built in Bowling Green, Kentucky.1 But make no mistake, this performance machine masterfully balances raw power with precise poise on the open road.
Transport yourself. With 668 hp3 and 659 lb-ft of torque3, you can test your limits on the track, with an estimated top speed of over 200 mph when properly equipped. Custom Launch Control with Line Lock helps offer an estimated 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds4, resulting in elite-level performance on and off the track.
STANDARD 6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
True performance driving is back. The standard 6-speed manual transmission strengthens your connection to the road and includes a unique shifter with a jewel-like, 3D-printed emblem. You're also free to leave the shifting to the lighting fast, unsurpassed speeds with the available 10-speed automatic transmission.
AVAILABLE CARBON-CERAMIC BRAKE SYSTEM WITH CROSS-DRILLED ROTORS
The CT5-V Blackwing is the first Cadillac vehicle to offer carbon-ceramic brakes with cross-drilled rotors, resulting in a brake system that is both visually appealing and high-performing. The brake system is integrated with vehicle drive modes (Tour, Sport, Track and Snow/Ice), including adjusting the brake-pedal feel for each mode—helping to deliver the driving characteristics expected while also helping to increase driver confidence.
Strong, yet lightweight. Rigid, yet agile. Highly integrated under-hood and overall structural reinforcements create a solid chassis, enabling precise tuning that delivers connected steering on the track and responsive handling on the road.
MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL
The CT5-V Blackwing features the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control, which reads the road up to 1,000 times per second and seamlessly adjusts damping for exceptional ride, handling and control.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE STEERING WHEEL
Prestige in the palms of your hands. The high-performance steering wheel delights with fine leather, cut-and-sewn stitching, carbon-fiber trim and a unique serialized plate, featuring a laser-etched engraving of a portion of your VIN. It also helps personalize your drive with quick-access buttons for V-Mode and Performance Traction Management.
TURN HEADS WHILE TAKING CORNERS
Design you’re driven to. Elegant and expressive, the CT5-V Blackwing combines striking style with excellent functionality. From its bold-faced grille to its sleek, long and low proportions, aesthetic beauty works in tandem with extensively validated aerodynamics, resulting in design that’s understated yet riveting both on and off the track.
Bold design beautifully directs airflow. The new mesh grille directs air to the main radiators, cooler and airflow ducts. Every secondary grille is functional and purposeful. The front splitter and rear spoiler combine to reduce lift and generate traction. This is science applied with the hands of a sculptor.
FORGED ALUMINUM WHEELS
Stronger and lighter than traditional cast aluminum wheels, the V-Series Blackwing features forged aluminum wheels paired with summer-only, high-performance, low-profile tires.5 These aluminum wheels are stiffer than previous Cadillac generations, resulting in reduced road noise and improved track performance. A distinct laser-etched “V” design detail adds an element of visual stopping power—proving that V-Series Blackwing thrills while in motion and at rest.
CARBON-FIBER EXTERIOR PACKAGES
To elevate ultimate performance design even further, the CT5-V Blackwing offers two available Carbon-Fiber Packages. More than adornments, these packages deliver touches that significantly reduce lift and dramatically improve handling and control.
