The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V tries to be two cars in one: a luxury sedan with sophisticated road manners and a track-capable sports car straight from the factory.

Cadillac has today unveiled the new CTS-V luxury sports sedan. With 640 horsepower, it's the newest entry in the class of the world's highest-performing luxury cars.

Launching in late summer with 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm) and a top speed of 200 mph, the new CTS-V reaches higher than its predecessor.

"V-Series represents the very best of the Cadillac brand - the pinnacle of our design and technical capabilities," said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. "The new CTS-V is the most compelling example of Cadillac's product substance and brand trajectory. The new CTS-V soars into the stratosphere of the most exhilarating luxury cars."

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V tries to be two cars in one: a luxury sedan with sophisticated road manners and a track-capable sports car straight from the factory. It also introduces a new supercharged 6.2L V8 engine backed by Cadillac's paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission, featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting.

With more horsepower and torque than the Mercedes-Benz 5.5-liter biturbo V8 and the BMW M-series 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, the new CTS-V is capable of 0-60 performance in 3.7 seconds.

Additionally, the Performance Data Recorder in the CTS-V allows drivers to record high-definition video, with data overlays, of their driving experiences on and off the track, enabling sharing on social media.

2016 CTS-V's Unique Exterior; Carbon Fiber Package Optional

Almost every exterior panel on the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is unique, from the fascias and fenders, to the hood, rear spoiler and rocker moldings. A front splitter enhances handling by forcing air to push down on the front of the car rather than flow under it, where it can cause lift.

An available Carbon Fiber package takes aero performance and mass optimization to higher levels. The Carbon Fiber package includes a more aggressive front splitter, hood vent, rear diffuser and spoiler.

"V-Series is the emotive core of Cadillac and the apex of the brand's Art and Science design philosophy," said Andrew Smith, executive director, Cadillac Global Design. "The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V reflects that with a bold sense of arrival, serious performance, seamless integration of technology and precision in its craftsmanship. The exposed carbon fiber components, for example, are book-matched on the centerline for a more precise, tailored appearance."
