CADILLAC PERFORMANCE

THE REFINED MADE RAW

The most powerful production models in Cadillac history. Vehicles with thunderous horsepower and lightning fast reflexes, completed by brilliant stopping power. They are as formidable on the track - where performance capabilities make everything possible, as they are on the street, where they make every drive infinitely memorable. This is the V-Series, the pinnacle of Cadillac’s performance engineering.


PERFORMANCE/DESIGN

ATTENTION TO DETAILS IS KEY TO
THE PERFECT FINISH

Every vehicle is meticulously crafted inside and out to help you become the best driver you can be. And perfect execution of every inch and detail is the only acceptable standard. It can be found in a perfectly balanced camshaft and the rhythmic power it creates. Found, too, in an audio speaker that sits so perfectly in a leather panel it appears to float. It is craftsmanship and an attention to detail as breathtaking as a perfectly executed curve.

INTERIOR

A MAGNIFIED LEVEL OF REFINEMENT THAT CREATES THE MOST IMMACULATE PERFORMANCE MACHINES

The performance-focused cabin brings driver support and convenience to its pinnacle. Every aspect of stability, control and attention to detail has been elevated with one focus in mind: the driver. It is design invoked with a performance attitude. When you see the refined finishes, prestige touches of the cabin, the intricate matte carbon fiber trim and sueded microfiber accents, you will know that you are inside a Cadillac. And with the signature thick-rim steering wheel complemented by magnesium paddle shifters, this sophisticated interior elevates the driving experience for everyone who gets behind the wheel.


EXTERIOR

THE LINE BECOMES BLURRED BETWEEN TURBOCHARGED GENESIS AND ATHLETICALLY STOIC STREET PRESENCE

Both beautiful and functional. Every design element serves a deliberate, functional and aesthetic purpose. Innovations in everything from aerodynamics to materials result in an intimidating sum of its parts, both on the street and at the starting line. From the aero splitter and hood to the quad exhaust tips, rear spoiler and diffuser, everything is designed for more than just looks, to support the car’s performance capabilities – including mass reduction, aerodynamics and enhanced cooling.

RECARO® PERFORMANCE SEATS


Available RECARO® front seats feature a handcrafted shape that cradles your body during cornering. Along with slip-resistant sueded panels and adjustable bolsters, their design takes the work out of staying in place during aggressive maneuvers. And Memory Pneumatic Lumbar Support counters the stresses associated with sitting, especially on longer drives.


​​

DYNAMIC CONTROL

TAKE IT STRAIGHT TO THE TRACK

Bred for the track, but certified for the road. A refined daily driver, the Cadillac V-Series vehicles are derived from track competition and designed to be capable of race-day performance straight from the factory.


PROGRAMMED TO RESPOND INSTANTLY

V-Series ZF electronic power-assist steering adjusts its timing for precise, quick and deeply satisfying steering feedback.


ENGINEERED STOPPING POWER WITH BREMBO® BRAKES

Front and rear Brembo® brakes are standard V-Series equipment. Front mono-block brake calipers are carved from a single block of lightweight aluminium alloy —for firm pedal feel and unmatched confidence. Front brake discs feature a two-piece rotor design for superior heat resistance, performance and durability. In addition, a class-exclusive Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing process greatly reduces corrosion on the rotors, helping maintain stopping power and prolong brake life.

CONQUER EVERY CURVE WITH CONSISTENT AND COMMANDING CORNERING

The V-Series vehicles offer competition spec traction and stability controls. Performance Traction Management (PTM) integrates traction and engine control systems for improved and consistent cornering. Enter Track Mode and choose from five driver-selectable levels of control: Wet, Dry, Sport 1,

Sport 2 or Race. During aggressive cornering — or on curvaceous on/off ramps — the electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) automatically directs power to the rear wheel with the most traction for great control and fast exit speeds.

TURBOCHARGERS: SERIOUS SPOOLING

With No-Lift Shift, you don’t have to let off the gas when switching gears. This keeps the turbochargers spooling, so there’s a faster return to full power when you re-engage a gear.


GREEN LIGHT OR GREEN FLAG—GO

Launch Control monitors traction activity, allows engine, transmission and suspension to work together for maximum, full-throttle acceleration off the line, resulting in better 0-100 times.
