2014 Cadillac CTS VSport Takes On the Nurburgring [Video]
Featuring by the company’s first twin-turbo engine and eight-speed transmission, the 2014 CTS VSport lapped the German track almost six seconds faster than the first generation CTS-V, Cadillac announced, pointing out that the previous model was powered by a larger V8 engine.
"The Nurburgring's extreme conditions allow us to push cars to the limits of stability, steering, braking, ride and handling," said Dave Leone, CTS executive chief engineer, Performance Luxury Vehicles. "The new CTS models had a lot to live up to considering the nameplate's history of outstanding performance, and we were not disappointed."
As a reminder, the 2014 Cadillac CTS VSport is motivated by a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 mill that delivers 420 HP to the rear wheels via an eight-speed transmission. The high-performance sedan starts at $59,995, almost $14,000 more than the standard CTS.
