Every curve, edge and line deliberate. The striking looks come from a functionally designed exterior that supports the car's capabilities by contributing to lift reduction, enhanced cooling and improved aero performance. With its athletic stance, wide body and low height, the CTS-V's shape is both aggressive and intelligent.
An upfront statement. The V-Series aerodynamic stance plays a crucial role in performance. The front splitter and front hood vent steer air around or over the vehicle to reduce lift. The iconic mesh grille is engineered for maximum airflow to the engine.
Complete and utter control. Performance Traction Management provides you with competition spec traction and stability controls. Adjust to conditions with five modes specifically for the track: Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 or Race.
At the same time, Launch Control monitors traction activity and ensures full-throttle off the line acceleration for incredible 0-60 times.
Cool, calm and collected. A large grille and fascia openings feed more air into a large-capacity radiator and multiple heat exchangers for cooling that adds up to maximum driving performance.
Light, but striking. A lightweight carbon fiber hood provides the CTS-V with optimal weight distribution and positively sleek looks.
Available carbon fiber package includes a unique carbon fiber splitter, hood vent, diffuser and the aggressive rear spoiler that generates greater downforce.
Bold accents at every pivot. A finely tuned quad exhaust announces your arrival, while imposing 19” lightweight forged aluminum V-Series wheels combine attitude with function.
A most immaculate performance machine. Step inside the CTS-V and you’ll find refined finishes, prestige touches and a cockpit designed with only one thing in mind: The driver.
Design invoked with a performance attitude. When you see the intricate matte carbon fiber trim and sueded microfiber accents, you'll know that this is a V-Series vehicle. And with its signature thick-rim steering wheel with magnesium paddle shifters, the sophisticated interior of CTS-V elevates the experience for the driver.
See more than just what's in front of you. The available Rear Camera Mirror streams a live view of what's behind you directly through the rearview mirror. This feature offers substantially more vision than a traditional mirror when needed and it can revert back to normal with the flip of a switch.
Curate your dash. The customizable instrument cluster lets you configure the 12.3" high-definition display to one of three themes. And the Head-Up Display lets you view select vehicle data through the windshield while keeping your eyes on the road.
Stay connected when you have to. The available built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot5 supports up to seven mobile devices. You'll have a fast and reliable 4G LTE connection that allows you to easily and quickly search for almost anything.
Cadillac user experience4 is compatible with Phone Integration for Apple CarPlay™6 and Android Auto™. The system lets you access your contacts, music and information with just a touch, flick or swipe of the screen.
Arm yourself with power and precision. The 2018 CTS-V dominates the road with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission plus structural and suspension components for decisive steering and cornering.
Uncompromised stopping power. Massive six piston front and four piston rear Brembo® brakes let you harness a powerful engine with durability, consistency and the capability for track-day performance straight from the factory.
The specifically sized and tuned rotors undergo a Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing process that greatly reduces corrosion and helps maintain smooth braking performance for a longer period of time.
Tuned and tested on the track. The CTS-V houses an 8-speed automatic transmission that provides responsive shifting along with smooth and refined performance.
Shift through all 8 seamlessly and automatically select the right gear with Performance Algorithm Shifting to improve lap times, or switch to manual control by tapping the magnesium paddle shifters, mounted on the steering wheel for a truly hands-on experience.
Wield relentless power. An impressive 640-hp and 630 lb-ft of torque will push you from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and has the ability to reach a top speed of 200 mph on the racetrack.
And for everyday-driving performance, it all works seamlessly with Direct Injection, Continuous Variable Valve Technology and Active Fuel Management.

An entirely new connection. Whether you unlock all the potential of your driving skills with real-time data, surround yourself with engulfing sound or see the road like never before, the CTS-V is loaded with advanced technology to elevate your drive.
Engulf yourself with sound. The 13-speaker Bose® Surround Sound system features Advanced Staging Technology, an innovation that creates an immersive sound experience to bring you the feeling of being front row, center stage. In addition, AudioPilot® 2.0 noise compensation technology continuously adjusts the volume to compensate for the effects of background noise and vehicle speed.
Track, analyze and share. Exclusive to the V-Series and its segment, the available Performance Data Recorder offers four overlays - Sport, Track, Performance or Tour - that let drivers record their driving experience by capturing real-time video, audio and performance metrics. The front-view camera captures each exhilarating curve and straightaway, and when parked, lets you watch and analyze your driving performance on the Cadillac user experience4 screen.
