Cadillac CTS-V: The Super Sedan to Look for in Salvage Car Auctions

 

Cadillac is a brand that has always been associated with luxury, power and style. By launching the CTS-V in 2003, Caddy made a bold statement in the American automobile segment and suddenly, people were in awe of this world-class super sedan. All across the US, be it a car auction site or an auto expo, all eyes look out for this premium segment vehicle. Along the years, several improvements have been made to help the CTS-V close down on its European competition. Let us take a look at the 2018 CTS-V, the car that is definitely the most powerful Cadillac ever built, in more detail.

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is 4-door, midsize luxury sport sedan and can accommodate up to five passengers. The car includes 19-inch alloy wheels, magnetorheological suspension dampers, Brembo brakes, a rear differential with electronic control, automatic control for high-beam headlight, heated side mirrors and automatic windshield wipers. Luxury takes a new definition with the simulated suede microfiber and leather seat upholstery along with a 20-way power front seats (complete with manually adjustable seat cushion length and power lumbar adjustment), dual-zone climate control, high-definition gauge cluster and a power tilt and telescoping steering. With some additional investments, you could incorporate design elements made of book-matched carbon-fiber weave such as the rear spoiler, hood vent, air splitter up front and rear end air diffuser, to generate increased downforce.


Performance

The prodigiously designed CTS-V has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood, same as the one which powers the Corvette Z06. The engine delivers 640 units of hp and 630 lb-ft of torque. Together with the 8-speed transmission assembly, and the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, the Cadillac reminds of the golden era of the original muscle cars. The CTS-V also has an electronic limited-slip differential to send power to the rear wheels, and offers four driving modes: Snow, Tour, Sport and Track. Each of these modes is categorised based on varying amounts of transmission, throttle, steering, stability control calibration and suspension. Additionally, the 2016 CTS-V lunges forward to attain the 60 mph mark from a dead stop in just 3.7 seconds.


What’s exciting

Cadillac's CTS-V has a sophisticated design that is also surprisingly sporty, with a driver-oriented layout and easy to decipher controls. The car has an impeccable hand-stitched, leather and suede-like microfiber accents, which further accentuates the luxury facet of the Caddy’s reputation as a car manufacturer. Innovative engineering has gone into the CTS-V, and thereby, it supersedes the previous versions by 25 percent in responsiveness and stiffness. The design also incorporates copious use of aluminum to reduce a further 100 pounds from its previous fighting weight. The car also imbibes an improved version of the Cadillac’s ingenuine CUE system which makes the controls a treat to understand and operate.
