Cadillac has prepared for the flagship CT6 sedan “charged” version of V-Sport, which not only received a more powerful engine, but also a different decor. Outside, the model stands out with unique 20-inch wheels with special summer tires, which were developed specifically for this version.
Under the hood of the new Cadillac CT6 V-Sport 2018-2019, there is a V8 engine with two turbochargers. This is a 4.2-liter unit, which was designed absolutely from scratch and has a pair of turbines with a double impeller located in the collapse of the unit.
The motor is also equipped with dual intercoolers, an overflow valve with electronic control, a system for switching off part of the cylinders, as well as a lubrication system with a variable-capacity electropump. On the all-wheel-drive sedan CT6 V-Sport, it produces 557 hp. and 850 Nm, working in conjunction with a ten-speed automatic.
Among other technical features, it is worth noting the exhaust system with active dampers, a mechanical self-locking differential on the rear axle, a retuned suspension with electronically controlled magnetorheological dampers, a reprogrammed Brembo booster and brake with 483 mm discs and four-piston calipers.
The list of available modes of the control electronics was supplemented with a track version, which, when activated, changes the algorithms of the rear pivot wheels, and also activates special settings for the active shock absorbers, stabilization, and distribution of the torque between the axles. Plus, the volume of the exhaust changes. The price of the V-Sport version is not announced.
