    Default 2022 Cadillc CT5-V Blackwing

    Did any of you watch the reveal?

    Probably the last supercharged V8 Cadillac with a manual to ever be built, will for sure be a collectible in the near future.
    Very low production numbers will help as well with collectability.



    Matt Farrah has declared a few times that the 3rd gen CTS-V is one of the greatest cars of all time, even with the automatic slosh box.

    Nothing wrong with the blown 6.2. I just chuckle at the blackwing branding.

    I kinda lost track of cadillac. So they went to a DOHC engine called a blackwing, but then decided to get back to the traditional pushrod with a SC. Is that it?

    yep that's it. The hot vee was a little too hot for GM. figuratively anyways... probably killed by accountants.

    This car looks amazing. Wish they'd make a chevy version that I could afford.

    Blackwing just means "the pinnacle of Cadillac performance"
    Silly people focus on the math.

    It's got 668hp and 659 pound-feet of torque, and available with a manual. I couldn't care less what engine is in it, it's awesome.

    Even people moaning about the CT4-V with the TT-V6, that car is going to be a rocket (and probably a great drive if the chassis is as good as the ATS-V was).

    I'm just excited to see a manual trans in production. 'Merica

    But seriously I wonder how many more swan song ICE cars we will see produced in the next 10 years as everyone converts over to electric power. Should be really exciting (hopefully)

    The actual blackwing only had automatics. I'd take this first, if I were forced to buy a $100g GM daily driver.

    I have a lot of seat time in an ATS-V that had a simple flash tune on it, it was absolutely ridiculous. Didn't feel any slower than a stock 3rd Gen CTS-V

    Could only get the DOHC twin turbo V8 for a short period of time on the CT6-V.
    Have spent about 2 hours driving one, it's a really impressive car however it looked as incredibly complicated and crammed in the engine bay as the turbo German V8's, looks like a servicing nightmare.
    I'd take the pushrod 6.2 with a supercharger any day just for the reliability and cheap serviceability.

    I’d likely toss it on the V forums or BAT, guys are looking for them all the time in the US and I’m confident I’d get back what I paid for it. Kind of crazy considering I bought it in 2014 and I’ve put an additional 45,000 km on it. Of course I’d also sell it local but I don’t think anyone would be willing to pay what it’s worth.

    I can’t afford to buy new vehicles, did you think I was a realtor? Maybe in 2024 when they hit the used market, I’d consider punting the wagon for this. I’m not crazy about the looks yet, and it won’t launch like your M5 or my Jeep but I’m confident that the reviews will be glowing. Big power and a stick, sign me up!
    I like neat cars.

    Blows my mind why they wouldn’t make an AWD version.
