The CT5-V Blackwing 2022 is Cadillac’s most powerful car yet.

General Motors Corp. has unveiled what may be its latest old-school sports sedan, which should delight fans of the American car industry: a 677-horsepower compressor V8, self-locking rear-wheel drive, and a six-speed manual transmission as standard equipment.

«Automatic» is accessible too, but it is, as they say, for wimps.

We must give credit, since the appearance of the first Cadillac CTS-V in 2004, the handling of which tuned the German Nürburgring, U.S. sport sedans have become respected around the world, but the era of such cars coming to an end — to 2035, GM intends to completely switch to electric cars, and with this perspective does not make sense to spend money to develop new products with a powerful gasoline V8.

Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing presented today is a kind of gift to fans of old-school American car industry, going against the «green» discourse of GM, and it is made along the same lines as the CTS-V first generation, only with a small adjustment for the actual digital technology and components.

Under the hood is the good old bottom-shaft 6.2-liter LT4 V8, still from the last front-engine Chevrolet Corvette: 1.7-liter Eaton drive supercharger, aluminum Rotocast A356T6 heads, titanium intake valves, modified lubrication and crankcase ventilation systems, high performance intake and exhaust systems have achieved maximum 677 hp and 893 Nm — the most powerful production Cadillac in history!

For comparison, the BMW M5 CS presented the other day has «only» 635 hp and 750 Nm under the hood.

There is a 6-speed manual transmission Tremec in pair with compressor V8 by default, thus the electronics knows how to select optimum revolutions of the engine while shifting gears, and if you want you can switch without dumping gas at all.

Driving wheels are only rear, between them there is self-locking differential with electronic control and its own cooling circuit.
