Exclamation Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Laps VIR Faster Than BMW M5 Competition [video]

Ya don't say? 🤔😳👀

https://www.motor1.com/news/514470/c...wing-fast-lap/



Quote:
The latest piece of evidence to support the Blackwing's superiority comes in the form of an in-car video, recently recorded by Cadillac at Virginia International Raceway and viewable above. The 4.1-mile Grand Course layout is extremely technical with relatively short straights, numerous crests, and challenging high-speed corners. Turning a good lap on the full course is a source of pride, and Cadillac has reason to be proud of its CT4-V Blackwing. Fitted with the optional Carbon Fiber 1 package, the bone stock sedan set a lap time of 2 minutes 52.5 seconds.
The time doesn't mean much without some comparison, and for that we turn to Car and Driver. Since 2006, the noted magazine has tested hundreds of cars on the big course and we find the CT4-V Blackwing lands in the upper portion of the list. It's quicker than a plethora of previous-generation supercars like the 997 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, fourth-gen Dodge Viper SRT10, and the Audi R8 V10. It's even quicker than Cadillac's previous top-dog V machine, the 640-horsepower CTS-V. What really caught our eye was the current-gen BMW M5 Competition, which clocked a lap of 2:54. That's a modern hardcore sedan that the Caddy beat by over a second.

That's some quality Cragar parts raiding for the rear lip. I'm sure it's functional, but there had to be a more aesthetic way of doing that.

Canards so fugly, they don't make any car look aesthetically more pleasing.

Can't wait for that stupid trend to die out.

crazy to think that we now have to choose between a BMW with the ugliest front end on the market and a cadillac that looks like it just came back from grandpas morning drive to the clinic...

Pretty sure last time I checked most people were cross shopping Huracans against the CT4. But that was a few years ago so who knows now.

Low mileage McLaren F1's are the most common car being crossed shopped with the CT4.

Oh no! I guess all M5C owners will now have to trade their cars in for a Cadillac. Right?

Happened more often than you'd think in the F10 M5 - CTS-V2 era.

So smaller, lighter cars are better suited on tracks with short straights and lots of curves? Ya don't say?

Can't believe there are idiots out there driving M8 Competitions when a 2016 Mustang (GT350R) has a better time on this one track. Imagine that!
