Speed and Exterior of the Blackwing Cadillac
Alas, without all-wheel drive the dynamic performance of the new models is not record-breaking. The six-cylinder Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing with automatic can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.8 seconds, and the eight-cylinder CT5-V Blackwing in 3.7 seconds. Top speeds are 304 km/h and 322 km/h, respectively. For example, the latest BMW M5 CS (635 hp, 750 Nm) with all-wheel drive reaches 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds.
Both powerful Cadillacs have a reinforced body and Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 adaptive suspension with stiffer springs and thicker stabilizers. From the outside, the Blackwing versions can be easily distinguished from the less powerful cars by an elaborate body kit: they have enlarged air intakes in the front, a diffuser in the rear bumper, large exhaust pipes, additional air ducts behind the front wheels.
