The 2022 CT4-V Blackwing boasts a fine-tuned suspension system, a specialized chassis, and an automaker-estimated top speed of 189 mph. And just as you’re wondering how this track-tuned performance car could get any better, Cadillac introduced a couple of carbon fiber aerodynamics accessory packages that maximize downforce and enhance agility.
“Aero performance was key to helping deliver the uniquely agile, engaging driving experience in the CT4-V Blackwing,” said Cadillac aerodynamics performance engineer Scott Sier. He credits the underwing with generating more downforce than any other Cadillac V-Series model has ever produced, all without compromising the sophisticated subtlety of the design.
Tony Roma, chief engineer behind the Cadillac V-Series Blackwing, explained that the goal was to create performance sedan that provided both mechanical and aerodynamic grip. We’d say they achieved that goal, since the end product was the most track-capable production vehicle that Cadillac has ever delivered.
What does all that downforce for your driving experience? “What this means is that the car gets pressed down into the road the faster you go, giving it more grip, greater stability, and inspiring the driver to confidently explore its full capabilities,” Roma explained.
The first batch of V-Series Blackwing models sold out quickly, but a small number are still available. Visit the Cadillac website today to order one through Cadillac of Santa Fe today. Deliveries will kick off in late summer.
