CT5-V Blackwing 688hp V8 heart mated to a 6 Speed Manual

The new Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will be powered by a 6.2L V8 with a 6 speed manual. The last era of the gas powered V cars. The CT5-V Blackwing will start at $84,990, packing a punch at 668hp from the 6.2L supercharged V8.

The supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 returns for an encore performance from the previous CTS-V with intake and exhaust improvements that bump its output from 640 hp and 630 pound-feet to 668 and 659, respectively, this time around. Although the Eaton four-lobe supercharger still displaces 1.7 liters, it now has smaller-diameter rotors to improve response. Each engine is hand-built by a single technician at the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, who signs each of his or her creations.
