ctsv-700

Cadillac is giving up some details on the 2016 CTS-V luxury performance car and it sounds like it will be a beast. The 2016 CTS-V will hit dealerships in late summer of 2015 and under the hood it will pack a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine. That engine has enough power and torque to make the 2016 CTS-V the most powerful product in the 112-year history of Cadillac.

The supercharged V8 engine will produce 640hp and 630 lb-ft of torque. That much power and torque will propel the CTS-V to a top speed of 200mph. Keep in mind that this level of performance comes from a 4-door luxury car. Sadly, no 2-door version has been announced.
