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.
Beyond 2017 however? Watch this space…
