New Cadillac CTS-V spied benchmarking against BMW M5, reveals new details

Few weeks ago we brought you the first spy shots of the next-generation high-performance Cadillac CTS-V.

Here we have new spy shots, showing a small test group of three prototypes, benchmarking against the BMW M5.

We also get to see more of the air intakes in the bonnet. Rest of the car has the same camouflage, showing a new huge vertical bar grille, that is most likely the new face of future V models.

Other notable changes we can see compared to the standard model include bigger air intakes, power dome bonnet and big round quad exhausts at the rear.

Power is expected to come from an updated supercharged 6.2-litre V8 producing close to 600bhp. In the outgoing model it delivers already an impressive 555bhp and 551 lb-ft of torque.

The new CTS-V is expected to debut in late 2014 or in early 2015, going against the BMW M5, Audi RS 6 and Mercedes E 63 AMG.
