Cadillac Explains Why CT5-V Blackwing Didn’t Get Corvette ZR1’s Engine

The reason’s quite logical, we must say.

The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is now out and about, and while it doesn’t carry the legendary Blackwing engine from the CT6-V, it still is the most powerful, most track-capable Cadillac the automaker has ever made.

Much praise goes to the upgraded supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 from the CTS-V, churning out up to 668 horsepower (498 kilowatts) and 659 pound-feet (893 Newton-meters) of pull. These numbers the CT5-V Blackwing to catapult from a standstill to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 3.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
