2022 Cadillac CT5 V Blackwing Fuel

  The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing would have been a heavy favourite. Its statistics are undeniably impressive. They are, indeed, mind-boggling: a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 producing 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque while weighing just over two tonnes, a standard six-speed manual transmission, and the purity of rear-wheel drive.

It's finally here. The car has a mind-blowing powertrain and an equally mind-blowing chassis. GM's magnetorheological dampers perform admirably as usual. In comparison, the steering of an M3 feels synthetic due to its tactile, perfectly weighted nature. Underfoot, there's a fantastically firm brake pedal that doesn't require multiple modes, but it does have them.
