7 Cadillac reveals true M5 and AMG E63 rival called CT6 V-Sport

Cover for Cadillac reveals true M5 and AMG E63 rival called CT6 V-Sport

The CTS-V and Hellcat Charger are the only sedans you really can consider luxury muscle. Neither are priced like M5 and E63, but priced like M3 and C63

CT6 is really a modern day M5/E63 rival because of its engine choice and it is going to cost $110,000 or so. In fact the CT6 V-Sport is America's first real target for M5 and E63. CTS-V was and is always an in-betweener (even the current one), lapping space between M3/AMG C and M5/AMG E.

Technically CT6 is a rival for BMW 7er and Mercedes S, but like Lincoln Continental, Cadillac's own XTS, and Genesis's G80 and G90, it is a big luxury sedan with the price of a mid size luxury or even compact executive sedan.

The headlights look like they couldn't decide whether to horizontal or vertical.

WHAT IS V-SPORT?
V-Sport is the embodiment of our passion for exhilarating driving experiences without compromise. It strikes the perfect balance between luxury, technology and thrilling performance.
THE HEART OF PERFORMANCE
Every story needs a hero, and the hero of the 2019 CT6 V-Sport is its powertrain. Engineered to impress, the Cadillac 4.2L Twin Turbo V8 estimated at 550 horsepower† and stunning 627 lb-ft of torque† works in perfect harmony with the new 10 speed automatic transmission with All-Wheel Drive. It makes maximum use of all the power the CT6 has to offer.
PURE POWER
The CT6 V-Sport powertrain is Cadillac’s first-ever Twin-Turbo V8 engine. This brand-new design balances performance and efficiency in a compact, mass-efficient form.
AN EVOLUTION IN STYLE
The 2019 CT6 V-Sport incorporates the newest iteration of Cadillac’s design language featured on the Escala Concept.
STYLE OF SPEED
The V-Performance inspired design gives a performance edge and a striking aesthetic. Its bold front grille, unique 20-inch V-Sport wheels paired with summer-only, low-profile tires†, ground effects and spoiler make an aggressive statement on the road.
A NEW SIGNATURE
New LED headlamps and taillamps are a reimagination of our signature style, yet remain distinctly Cadillac.
EVOLUTION NEVER STOPS
Many of the CT6’s revolutionary technologies have been improved for 2019. Enjoy the next evolution of features such as the Rear Camera Mirror and Wireless Charging.
TOTAL POWER, TOTAL CONTROL
Speed and control go hand in hand. The 10-speed automatic transmission shifts with ease using the new Electronic Precision Shift for CT6.
from the Caddy website. they estimate 550hp, im guessing it will be at least 590hp... though i cant wait to see a showdown between these 3 + a CTS-V for kicks.

So it is a cross between the last gen E class and last gen 5 series performance models.

Hell no will I spend that much money on a Cadillac, the long standing most unreliable luxury brand.
