The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and CT4-V Blackwing represent the pinnacle of Cadillac performance and craftsmanship, combining championship-winning racing heritage with luxury and comfort to create the most track-capable Cadillacs ever.

Highlights include:

  • Evolutions of the track-ready Cadillac 6.2L Supercharged V8 in the CT5-V Blackwing (668 horsepower) and 3.6L Twin-Turbo V-6 (472 horsepower) in the CT4-V Blackwing
  • A six-speed manual transmission is standard on both models; a 10-speed automatic with paddle-shifters is available on both
  • An Electronic Limited Slip Rear Differential is standard on both vehicles and features a lighter-weight aluminum housing and enhancements designed to improve track performance
  • Advanced suspension refinements provide greater body control and a more agile feel
  • Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 with Blackwing-specific tuning sharpens the balance between daily-driving comfort and high-performance track capability
  • Unique, purposeful exterior elements, including specific grilles, rear spoiler, front splitter, mid-body panels, rear diffuser, fender vents, rocker extensions and more, all shaped in the wind tunnel to help reduce lift on a track or support propulsion system cooling
  •  Available, wind-tunnel-tested carbon fiber packages that reduce lift on a track, compared to the models’ respective standard aero packages — including a 214 percent reduction in lift on the CT4-V Blackwing
  • Interiors that have been elevated to new levels of functionality, finish and refinement. Uplevel trims feature available bookmatched carbon fiber seatbacks and premium leathers, as well as additional carbon fiber and sueded interior trim. V-Series Blackwing vehicles will also be available with a premium AKG audio system
