Cadillac CT4-V and CT-5 Blackwing: Hear them clear their throats

Cars
You know what you don't hear much about anymore manual transmissions. Even before this pandemic automaker budgets for brand new models featuring three pedals well, they just about one to zero worldwide. That's one very good reason why Cadillacs just confirmed CT4V and CT5V blackwing. Series cars are worth getting all hot and bothered about I have got another good reason too. They sound like this, [SOUND] [MUSIC] Yeah, that is the stuff straight pipe that right into my eardrums let's hear that again. [SOUND] [SOUND] Sounds pretty good, right? What else did you notice? Six gear changes with [UNKNOWN] pauses between them. You caught that, right? I knew you would. Never mind what your significant other says, you really are a good listener. Anyway, that friends is the sound of a manual transmission making somebody's day. Confusingly despite these cars official names, you're not hearing the new 6.2 liter blackwing v eight the develops 550 horsepower in the CT six v Blackwing is now GM Code Speak for the pinnacle model of given Cadillac in a range regardless of what power plant is under the hood. In any case, along with sending out this tasty audio teaser, GM has confirmed to RoadShow that these Blackwing models will come standard with a stick shift and the automatic Well, that'll be optional. Cool, right? GM's even provided us with a smattering of candid photos. You know what's not cool? Yes. socks with sandals? Yes. proposing at somebody else's wedding, but also waiting. Yeah, waiting is really uncool. Unfortunately, that's exactly what we're gonna have to do. Thanks to world events, these models have been pushed back and will now carry 2022 model year designations. In fact, Caddie says we won't even see these cars undisguised until Q1 of next year. So for now, we're going to have to contend ourselves with the already announced standards CT for V And CT5 v non black wing models. Both of which are automatic only, and are said to be much less powerful. Capisce? In the meantime, GM says its forthcoming black wings will be undergoing further performance testing. They note that they've already been lapping racetracks like VAR Quicker than the ATSV and the CTSV, both of which were seriously fast machines. So we still don't know how many cylinders these new cars will have, let alone how many horsepower. That said it sounds like it could be worth waiting for these two black wings to take flight, especially since you'll be able to get them with DIY gearbox. [SOUND]
