It’s there, rapidly rounding the corner. The distillation of decades of Cadillac racing excellence. Agile, like a world-class athlete. Powerful, like a machine built to stir your soul and awaken your senses. The 2022 CT4-V BlackwingTM blends motorsport mastery with the height of Cadillac craftsmanship and innovation—resulting in the ultimate expression of everyday exhilaration.
Track-capable. Right from the factory. The CT4-V Blackwing outpaces its Cadillac predecessors, sending your pulse soaring with a Cadillac-estimated top track speed of over 189 mph when properly equipped. But make no mistake, this performance masterpiece balances raw power with precise poise on the open road.
Ease down the throttle and revel in the rush of 472 hp1 and 445 lb-ft of torque.1 Custom Launch Control with Line Lock helps offer a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds,2 while lightweight titanium-aluminide turbines virtually eliminate turbo lag, resulting in elite-level performance on and off the track.
STANDARD 6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
True performance driving is back. The CT4-V Blackwing is the only sedan in its segment to offer a standard 6-speed manual transmission. Atop the shifter, you’ll find a jewel-like 3D-printed emblem, underscoring the uniqueness of these models. You’re also free to leave the shifting to the available lightning-fast, segment-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission.
Strong, yet lightweight. Rigid, yet agile. Highly integrated under-hood and overall structural reinforcements create a solid chassis, enabling precise tuning that delivers connected steering on the track and responsive handling on the road.
MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL
The CT4-V Blackwing features the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control, which reads the road up to 1,000 times per second and seamlessly adjusts damping for exceptional ride, handling and control.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE BREMBO® BRAKES
Not much stops the CT4-V Blackwing in its tracks. But high-performance Brembo brakes do so with authority. Track-tested and -validated, these advanced brakes deliver confident pedal feel and enhanced cooling for secure stopping power.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE STEERING WHEEL
Prestige in the palms of your hands. The available high-performance steering wheel delights with fine leather, cut-and-sewn stitching, carbon-fiber trim and a unique V-Series emblem displaying a six-digit portion of your VIN. It also helps personalize your drive with quick-access buttons for V-Mode and Performance Traction Management.
Captivate Your Competitors. Then Blow Them Away.
Power is seductive. But the CT4-V Blackwing more than merely looks the part of a track-capable, ultimate performance sedan—it’s engineered to exacting standards. Aesthetic beauty works in tandem with extensively validated aerodynamics, resulting in design that’s indisputably dominant.
Bold design beautifully directs airflow. The new mesh grille directs air to the main radiators, cooler and airflow ducts. Every secondary grille is functional and purposeful. The front splitter and rear spoiler combine to reduce lift and generate traction. This is science applied with the hands of a sculptor.
FORGED ALUMINUM WHEELS
Stronger and lighter than traditional cast aluminum wheels, V-Series Blackwing features forged aluminum wheels paired with summer-only, high-performance, low-profile tires.3 These aluminum wheels are stiffer than previous Cadillac generations, resulting in reduced road noise and improved track performance. A distinct laser-etched “V” design detail adds an element of visual stopping power—proving that V-Series Blackwing thrills while in motion and at rest.
To elevate ultimate performance design even further, the CT4-V Blackwing offers two available Carbon-Fiber Packages. More than adornments, these packages deliver touches that significantly reduce lift and dramatically improve high-speed handling and control.
