Don’t panic. General Motors has yet to kill off the internal combustion engine or the manual transmission. Despite GM’s recently announced plans to go all-electric with its passenger-car vehicle fleet by 2035, the company is still quite a ways from — pardon the pun — pulling the plug on traditional horsepower.
In fact, on the evening of February 1, GM’s Cadillac division unveiled the V-Series Blackwings, which may not be a zero-emission vehicle but which it promises to be the “ultimate track capability, zero compromise” performance vehicles.
“The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and CT4-V Blackwing represent the pinnacle of Cadillac performance and craftsmanship, leveraging championship-winning racing heritage to create the most track-capable Cadillacs ever, while continuing to set new standards for luxury and comfort,” Cadillac said in its announcement.
