While we have a solid base for a performance product, GM has launched the CT6 in twin-turbo V6 guise, with no V8 available at the moment. Nevertheless, the company is on its way to releasing a new V8 engine family, which may or may not be used to spice things up rather than just for comfort.
While the CT6 may not be a flagship, it’s definitely a Cadillac technology case on wheels. We’ll remind you Cadillac is currently following a $12 billion scheme aimed at improving its image and expanding its product range, so it’s obvious the CT6 will climb higher in the future.
However, it remains to be seen whether the CT6 will go down the proper V route or take the V-Sport warm approach. While Cadillac decides on that, we’re bringing you the rendering above, which comes from photographer Steven Pham via GM Authority.
Still, the decision to build a CT6-V is not exactly easy. A look at the German carmaker’s performers in the segment shows that while Audi has the S8 and Mercedes-Benz the S63 AMG, BMW remains firm about the decision to not build an M7, even with the new G11 7-Series generation.
