It’s that time of year again. Motor Trend has rounded up the greatest performance, and pedestrian, machines the model year has given us, and is busy pushing their limits at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. With a little help from Randy Pobst, of course.
And, some of General Motors’ most precious sheetmetal has made it into the field, including the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. Here, we see Pobst use his skills to tame the LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 in the latest sport sedan from the brand to lay down an impressive time at the track.
Overall, Pobst walked away impressed with the balanced chassis (thanks, Alpha!) and immense torque from the engine. Though, he was not a fan of the brakes, which he noted required a heavy foot to produce the stopping power needed to slow the hurling mass of American performance to a halt.
Will the 2016 CTS-V have what it takes overall to take the Best Driver’s Car crown? We’ll know soon enough.
