Take a few laps around the track with team Cadillac in a CTS-V

If you like speed and fast cars, you will like this video without a doubt.

There are a few things I like about this video; the first thing is just the sheer adrenaline rush you get from watching something like this. It puts you right in the action just inches above the fast moving pavement and thrusts you around every corner of the track. The second thing I like about this particular video is that it has commentary not just from one driver’s perspective, but also from the driver of the vehicle in front of the camera as well. It adds a nice bit of informational depth as to what goes through the mind of a driver racing around a track at speeds over 150 mph just to brake hard and accelerate around the turn.

The car that the ride along camera was mounted on was a Cadillac CTS-V. This brings me to my third favorite thing about this video, the car. Cadillac just recently got back into competitive racing with the CTS-V being their go-to car of choice to race head to head with other top cars around the world.

The Cadillac CTS-V you see here in the video can produce up to 556 horses. If you want the CTS-V Coupe for yourself don’t worry, it too comes with 556 horses and has 551 Ibs.-ft. of torque.
