THE REFINED MADE RAW
The most powerful production models in Cadillac history. Vehicles with thunderous horsepower and lightning fast reflexes, completed by brilliant stopping power. They are as formidable on the track - where performance capabilities make everything possible, as they are on the street, where they make every drive infinitely memorable. This is the V-Series, the pinnacle of Cadillac’s performance engineering.
ATTENTION TO DETAILS IS KEY TO
THE PERFECT FINISH
Every vehicle is meticulously crafted inside and out to help you become the best driver you can be. And perfect execution of every inch and detail is the only acceptable standard. It can be found in a perfectly balanced camshaft and the rhythmic power it creates. Found, too, in an audio speaker that sits so perfectly in a leather panel it appears to float. It is craftsmanship and an attention to detail as breathtaking as a perfectly executed curve.
A MAGNIFIED LEVEL OF REFINEMENT THAT CREATES THE MOST IMMACULATE PERFORMANCE MACHINES
The performance-focused cabin brings driver support and convenience to its pinnacle. Every aspect of stability, control and attention to detail has been elevated with one focus in mind: the driver. It is design invoked with a performance attitude. When you see the refined finishes, prestige touches of the cabin, the intricate matte carbon fiber trim and sueded microfiber accents, you will know that you are inside a Cadillac. And with the signature thick-rim steering wheel complemented by magnesium paddle shifters, this sophisticated interior elevates the driving experience for everyone who gets behind the wheel.
RECARO® PERFORMANCE SEATS
Available RECARO® front seats feature a handcrafted shape that cradles your body during cornering. Along with slip-resistant sueded panels and adjustable bolsters, their design takes the work out of staying in place during aggressive maneuvers. And Memory Pneumatic Lumbar Support counters the stresses associated with sitting, especially on longer drives.
CONQUER EVERY CURVE WITH CONSISTENT AND COMMANDING CORNERING
The V-Series vehicles offer competition spec traction and stability controls. Performance Traction Management (PTM) integrates traction and engine control systems for improved and consistent cornering. Enter Track Mode and choose from five driver-selectable levels of control: Wet, Dry, Sport 1,
Sport 2 or Race. During aggressive cornering — or on curvaceous on/off ramps — the electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) automatically directs power to the rear wheel with the most traction for great control and fast exit speeds.
8-GEARS, IMMEASURABLE CONTROL
The TREMEC 8-speed automatic transmission is equipped with an incredibly satisfying short-throw shifter and dual-disc clutch. Combined with features like No-Lift Shift and Active Rev Matching, it’s perfect for harnessing V-Series power.
The transmission features Performance Algorithm Shifting. Automatically activated by intense g-forces, this technology seamlessly selects the best gear for quicker shifts and faster lap times. For even more control, Magnesium Paddle Shifters let you tap through the gears for refined acceleration and deceleration.
A FORMIDABLE FRAME
A stiffened, lightweight structure allows the V-Series to be track-capable from the factory. The V-Series boasts a multi-link MacPherson strut independent front suspension, focused on delivering a quicker response and lateral control. 5-link independent rear suspension achieves all-out track performance while maintaining everyday comfort.
PERFORMANCE DATA RECORDER
Review your run. Improve your times. Performance Data Recorder available for V-Series vehicles captures your track driving — recording video, audio and performance data in real time.
Everything can be viewed on the Cadillac CUE®screen or saved on an SD card to watch later. The system’s four overlays — Sport, Track, Performance or Tour — help analyze your skills. For an even more detailed analysis, the Performance Data Recorder can be used in conjunction with the Cosworth Toolbox. Used by professional racing teams, this software provides a turn-by-turn breakdown of your run to improve your driving skills.
V-SERIES VS V-SPORT
While V-Sport represents an exclusive features package curated for more dynamic driving, the V-Series is an entirely new breed of vehicles, built from scratch for utmost performance.
The Cadillac CTS V-Sport Sedan is a more performance-oriented version of the CTS Sedan, slotting between the “standard” CTS and the high-performance CTS-V. For the 2017 model year, the CTS V-Sport receives several new features, equipment changes, and colors. This enhanced package features a 12.3'' HD reconfigurable gauge cluster, full-color Head-Up display, Tri-Zone Climate, 20-way adjustable front seats and heated outboard rear seats for the utmost in comfort and control. In just 4.4 seconds, the 420-hp, twin Turbo V6 engine propels the CTS V-Sport from 0 to 100 kmh. While the XTS V-Sport Platinum model is equipped with a 410-hp, Twin Turbo V6 engine propels the CTS V-Sport from 0 to 100 kmh. While the XTS V-Sport Platinum model is equipped with a 410-hp, Twin Turbo V6 engine paired with an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission.
A variety of sophisticated handling and vehicle management features like Magnetic Ride Control and Brembo front brakes ensure all this power remains firmly under your control. At the same time, the 2017 CTS-V dominates the road with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission plus structural and suspension components for decisive steering and cornering. It takes you from 0 to 100 in just 3.7 seconds, offering you a supreme 640-hp and 854 Nm of torque.
