Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Race Car


Cadillac is making a big comeback, well sort of, to motorsport after nearly five years.

They’re coming back to the SCCA World Series in America with a specially-prepared CTS-V Coupe Race Car. Specs of it are yet to be announced but the standard CTS-V has 556 hp, and that’s not exactly weak either.

Cadillac will field two teams in the upcoming SCCA World Challenge GT Class with a racecar based on the CTS-V Coupe. Andy Pilgrim and  Johnny O’Connell also signed as Cadillac drivers.

“Returning to racing in the SCCA World Challenge is a great way to demonstrate the performance and capability of the CTS-V Coupe,” said Don Butler, vice president for Cadillac marketing.   “The racecars in this series are production based, which allows us to validate our performance against the best of our competitors on the track, and not just the showroom.”Cadillac is working with Pratt & Miller, a New Hudson, Mich., engineering firm which specializes in motorsports, to develop the CTS-V Coupe racecar.

While some of the production CTS-V components will be modified due to the unique demands of racing or to meet the SCCA series’ technical rules, every effort is taken to maintain as much production content as possible.
