It’s no secret that General Motors is working on a third-generation of the high-performance Cadillac CTS-V sedan. Motor Authority recently caught prototypes of the upcoming super-sedan out testing, but this time, it was pictured alongside what will be one of its main rivals, the BMW M5 F10.
Just like in previous spy shots, the exact details of the new CTS-V are hidden beneath a layer of camouflage. From what we can tell, the CTS-V will sport a wide-mouth grille and additional intakes on the lower-section of the front bumper. There is also a domed hood with a heat-extractor vent, likely evidence of the car’s supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine.
Other obvious small details on this pre-production prototype are deep-concave wheels wrapped in extremely wide Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, extended wheel arches and four exhaust tips which appear large enough to swallow a Prius.
Official details on the new CTS-V are scarce, but were expecting power numbers to be much more than the 556 horsepower the outgoing model boasts and on par with or greater than the 575 horsepower the M5 Competition Package is churning out. Pricing will more than likely be considerably higher than the $59,995 the current range topping CTS, the V-Sport, commands.
