Cadillac recently took the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport to the famed Nurburgring in Germany, where it completed a lap in 8:14.10, almost six seconds faster than the first generation CTS-V recorded 10 years ago with a larger V-8 engine.
Measuring 12.9 miles and including some 154 turns, the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife (“north loop”) is widely considered the world’s most-demanding course for vehicle validation. Nürburgring validation certified that all CTS suspension packages are capable of handling the extreme conditions and unlimited speeds of Autobahn driving.

“The Nürburgring’s extreme conditions allow us to push cars to the limits of stability, steering, braking, ride and handling,” said Dave Leone, CTS executive chief engineer, Performance Luxury Vehicles. “The new CTS models had a lot to live up to considering the nameplate’s history of outstanding performance, and we were not disappointed.”

The CTS Vsport is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 with 420 horsepower that is mated to an eight-speed transmission.
