Cadillac CTS Vsport Runs 8:14 Nurburgring Lap TimeCadillac released lap times it recorded in the 2014 CTS Vsport at the Nurburgring, beating the original V8-powered CTS-V.
With 420 hp pumping from its 3.6-liter tin turbo v6, the new version of Cadillac’s luxury sedan recorded an 8:14.10 lap around the “Green Hell.” That’s almost six seconds faster than the first-generation CTS-V did a decade ago. That time also makes it quicker around the course than a BMW 1M Coupe.
Cadillac built an ad campaign out of testing its smaller ATS sport sedan, which targets BMW 3 Series buyers, on the Nurburgring. Now the company seems to be gearing up for a similar performance-oriented marketing strategy with the newly enlarged CTS.
