The boys at Motor Trend road test team have gotten their hands on a brand-new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. And as you would expect from these speed freaks, they immediately hit the race track with it to see what a Caddy with a 640 horsepower Corvette engine can do when you let it loose on empty, smooth tarmac.

The track part of 2016 Cadillac CTS-V test is done by race car driver Randy Pobst, while for the road test part we are trusting the infinite wisdom of one heavily bearded dude called Jonny Lieberman:

Boasting 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm), the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V offers a 0 to 60 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph. Some of key highlights of this car that set it apart from the competition are as follows:

  • Standard carbon fiber hood and available carbon fiber vent, front splitter, rear spoiler and rear diffuser for greater aerodynamic performance
  • Brembo high-performance brake system developed to provide durability, consistency and the capability for track-day performance straight from the factory
  • Third-generation Magnetic Ride Control delivering 40-percent faster damping response
  • Integrated chassis controls that provide balanced performance for touring and the track, including competition-spec Performance Traction Management
  • Structural stiffness increased by 25 percent for improved ride and superior handling
  • Driver-selectable modes electronically calibrate performance variables for touring, sport and track driving conditions
  • Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires with tri-compound technology offering excellent grip with extended wear
  • An interior with performance-oriented, sueded microfiber accents and matte-finish carbon fiber trim and available RECARO high-performance seats for spirited driving
  • Advanced safety and parking technologies, including a front curb-view camera system that provides a visual cue of curbs to protect the front splitter; automatic parking assist to find and steer into parallel or perpendicular parking spots; side blind zone alert, forward collision alert, lane keep assist and rear cross traffic alert.+
