Structural stiffness of 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is bumped up by 25 percent.

Further, aerodynamic side skirts, 19-inch forged aluminium alloy wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, four-tailpipe exhaust system, rear spoiler, and the like round off the exteriors of the 2016 CTS-V.

Interior of the latest Cadillac CTS-V is largely a carry over job, but gets added features like semi-aniline leather or sueded micro-fibre sport seats, matte carbon fibre accents, CUE infotainment system, Bose audio system, Performance Data Recorder and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

2016 Cadillac CTS-V gets a 6.2 litre V8 supercharged engine that pumps out 640 bhp max power and 855 Nm peak torque, mated to eight-speed automatic transmission. The power house pushes the sedan to sprint from 0 – 96.56 kmph in 3.7 seconds and reach top speed of 322 kmph.

To make good use of the power in store, Cadillac has added a sport-tuned suspension, improved the steering system, installed an electronic limited-slip rear differential, made prop shafts larger, equipped Brembo brakes and upgraded the Magnetic Ride Control system. There is also a “competition-spec” Performance Traction Management system which gets four different modes – Tour, Sport, Track and Snow.
