Blackwing flies at Rolex 24

If you watched the Rolex 224 from Daytona International Speedway, you already know that Cadillac is a contestant, mixing it up memorably in the prototype wars. And even though General Motors just declared it’s going fully carbon neutral by 2040, that didn’t stop the General from an inventive tease of two forthcoming performance cars that most definitely burn hydrocarbons for their energy. The new Cadillac performance sedans, the CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing, got a livestreamed star turn as both Blackwings appeared in a 60-second video of both cars assaulting the Daytona road course at night. The video aired on NBC shortly after last weekend’s Roar Before the 24 fanfest concluded.

With a six-speed manual transmission and model-specific cut-and-sewn leather interior, both editions of the Blackwing – shorn of their camouflage for the video teaser – are scheduled to reach the showrooms by late summer. After the video aired, buyers were given the chance to reserve one of the first 250 numbered editions of each Blackwing sedan.
