The Cadillac CT6-V could be a future collector's car.
Before the new Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and CT4-V Blackwing debuted earlier this month, Cadillac launched the limited-edition CT6-V flagship sedan. With a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 668 horsepower and 659 lb-ft of torque, the CT5-V Blackwing is the most powerful production Cadillac ever made, but the CT6-V is the only Cadillac that utilized GM's discontinued Blackwing V8 engine that cost $16 million to develop.
Production of the CT6-V was limited to the 2019 and 2020 model years, with only around 1,500 examples rolling off the production line. Out of these, only around 600 were made for the 2020 model year. Unsurprisingly, it didn't take very long for them all to be snapped up. If you missed out, one of the 600 CT6-Vs built for the 2020 model year will be sold at an upcoming auction next month.
With only 1,020 miles on the clock, this CT6-V looks fresh out of the factory. The high-performance luxury sedan is finished in a Crystal White Tri-Coat exterior with a Jet Black leather interior and rides on 20-inch V Series wheels. It also comes equipped with a glass panoramic roof, heated, cooled, and massage seats, a Bose Panaray sound system with 34 speakers, and a carbon fiber interior trim. Other luxuries include a lane tracking package, parking assistance, surround view camera, a blind spot assist, night vision, adaptive cruise control, and a driver assistance package.
Under the hood, the Cadillac CT6-V is powered by a twin-turbo 4.2-liter Blackwing V8 engine producing 550 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels through a ten-speed automatic transmission.
This setup enables the CT6-V to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.8 seconds, which is only 0.1 seconds slower than the more powerful CT5-V Blackwing.
Given its rarity and performance, the CT6-V seems destined to become a future collector's car, so this could be a very wise investment. This pristine example will be sold at the upcoming Mecum Auction in Glendale on March 18-20. There's no auction estimate, but it's probably safe to assume it will fetch more than its original $94,895 asking price and will only increase in value in the future.
