The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is poised to be the return of the American performance car, according to Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac President. The 6.2-liter supercharged V8 will make this not only the fastest Cadillac production vehicle, but the fastest production vehicle amongst the entire General Motors portfolio.
It’s no surprise then the 2016 CTS-V is being pushed hard around the Nürburgring as Cadillac hopes to smash a record with its performance sedan, with ‘ring times forthcoming. In the latest round of testing at the famed track, it seems the 2016 CTS-V was pushed a tad too far, according to a report from AutoGuide.
It’s unclear what happened particularly, but AutoGuide’s spy shots show the entire driver’s side of the car crumpled from the headlight back. The site reports the 2016 CTS-V may have hit a wall and caused the damage. Surprisingly, the airbags did not deploy, and their photographers say the car made one last lap around before calling it quits.
You can see the photos here, and check out the damage done. We’re sure things have been straightened out by now with the minor mishap behind the Cadillac team.
