The Cadillac V-Series lineup bolsters its performance chops with aggressive styling upgrades, including quad exhaust tips for the Cadillac CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing. Now Cadillac CT5 owners can add this V-Series styling perk to their non-V CT5 sedan thanks to these fake Cadillac V-Series exhaust finishers.
The fake Cadillac V-Series exhaust finishers are available on eBay, priced at $80.99 for a set of two (one for the right pipe, one for the left pipe). The exhaust finishers are offered from seller hb-autoturning, and are described as fitting “2019” and 2020 Cadillac CT5 models equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, including the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels. Seven units are currently available from a production run of 10 total.
According to the production description, the fake Cadillac V-Series finishers are made from stainless steel and fit to the factory exhaust system using 3M tape.
Essentially, the fake finishers mount to the outer lip of the non-V exhaust tip, giving the non-V CT5 a quad exhaust aesthetic.
While pretty tacky looking (and questionable in terms of quality over the longterm), these fake Cadillac V-Series exhaust finishers are certainly not the worst eBay car modifications we’ve ever seen.
To note, the Cadillac CT5 produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque when equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine. Step it up to the twin-turbo 3.0L V6 LGY, and output jumps to 335 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque in the Premium Luxury, and 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque with the Cadillac CT5-V. At the top of the CT5 food chain is the new 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, which runs the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, good for a stout 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque.
