Official: Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Engines Will Be Handbuilt

One person to one motor.

It’s a well-known fact that the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing super sedan will have GM’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8. However, unlike many engines in passenger vehicles at the moment, the LT4 units in the CT5-V Blackwing will be built by hand; each receiving the same workmanship by a single operator in the Performance Build Center at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.

Most gearheads will know that the small-block LT4 isn’t new territory for General Motors. It’s previously been used in hot rods such as the third-generation Cadillac CTS-V sedan, the Chevy Corvette C7 Z06, and the Chevy Camaro ZL1 – it’s even expected to make an appearance in the Cadillac Escalade-V. Regardless, the hand-built unit in the Blackwing will be more powerful than ever with 668 horsepower (498 kilowatts) and 659 pound-feet (893 newton-meters) of torque on tap.
