These Blackwing models will be geared at the weekend racers and others who frequent the track, but will be street-legal. They are also supposed to represent the very best in Cadillac performance, and considering this is the same brand that made the bonkers ATS-V that’s really saying something.

Before you start to criticize, hear this: the general consensus is one of these two new Blackwing models will use the same engine as the ATS-V and CTS-V. It’s doubtful Cadillac will water things down much, if at all.

That lucky future model will head up the CT5 lineup. Some estimates say the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing could make 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

As for the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, the word is it will pack a nice twin-turbo V-6 with about 464 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque on tap.

It’s likely both these cars are using more advanced transmissions, excellent suspension tuning, and more.
