The upcoming 2015 Cadillac CTS-V was recently spied testing under heavy camouflage alongside a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 also heavy disguised yet still clearly distinguishable from the ‘regular’ Corvette Stingray.
While the car you see above is completely covered in camouflage, the car will inevitably feature much more aggressive bodywork than the standard CTS. Such changes will include flared wheel arches, a new front grille, air intakes, bumpers front and rear as well as new quad-exhaust pipes. As for the new grille, it can be seen finished in matte black on the prototype and features vertical slates. It is currently unclear if this design will make it into production.
While the styling changes will indeed make the new Cadillac CTS-V stand out, the real action is expected to take place under the hood. Insiders say that the new CTS-V could receive a massive GM 6.2-liter V8 aided by a massive supercharger. As a matter of fact, this powertrain could be borrowed from the Corvette Z06 and somewhat tweaked for the CTS-V.
In its most recent spec, the CTS-V delivers 556 hp and 551 lb-ft of torque. As a result of the new upgraded engine, we expect those figures to rise even deeper into supercar and 600 hp territory.
