Cadillac’s powered-up CTS-V sedan has been previewed once again in a promotional video aimed at getting the fans excited.

In the clip, the CTS-V is seen burning rubber within the decaying magnificence of what looks to be an abandoned Detroit warehouse.

The tyre smoke is a reminder of just how capable the CTS-V’s 477kw/854Nm supercharged 6.2 litre V8 engine is, but we suspect the fans already knew that.

The engine features cylinder-deactivation to keep the fuel usage down (a little), and is matched exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Fans would also be aware that the CTS-V can hit 100km/h from rest in just 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 322km/h.

Despite this, Cadillac is keen to capitalise on the hype over its new performance sedan ahead of its official unveiling at this month’s Detroit Auto Show - hence the video.

US customers can expect to see the CTS-V in Cadillac showrooms by the middle of the year as a 2016 model, with pricing yet to be confirmed.

Australian customers can expect to see the CTS-V ‘never’ at this stage, as neither it - nor its smaller sibling in the ATS-V - will be heading ‘Down Under’ (so we're told by GM).

Right-hand-drive markets such as Japan and South Korea, however, will have the opportunity to purchase the CTS-V.

Of course, while performance versions of the Holden Commodore and its HSV offshoots are still in manufacture, we don’t expect GM will change its stance and offer the model here.

Beyond 2017 however? Watch this space…
