Twin Turbo Cadillac CTS-V Goes Racing from a Roll and Dig
CTS-V takes a few losses, but it also grabs a few wins, as do some high performance Chevys.
The video above comes to us from the Night Owl Racing YouTube channel and it is chock full of fantastic street racing footage, featuring a wicked-quick Cadillac CTS-V and some other monster GM products. We get to watch this twin turbo Caddy take on a few competitors from a roll before heading to a desolate side street for some thrilling dig racing action.
The video begins with the Cadillac CTS-V taking on a stock C6 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. The two go on three, with the C6 jumping out to an early lead, but the Caddy quickly catches and passes, blowing the sports car away at roughly 135 miles per hour.
Next, the boosted wagon takes on a Nissan 300ZX, once again trailing early before blasting past the boosted import. The two go head-to-head again, this time with a Civic that has no place in the race. On this second run, the Nissan gets the jump pulls out to a decent lead before lifting.
Random Cars Dig Racing
After the highway roll racing, we head to the dig racing portion of the video, beginning with a Fox Body Mustang jumping out and walking away from a C6 Corvette.
Next, we watch what looks to be a 1965 Chevy II Nova taking on a 4th generation Camaro, winning with ease, followed by a close race with the silver C6.
We then watch a handful of Mustang pairings head down the track, and while the action is messy, no one crashes and all spectators were unharmed.
CTS-V Goes Digging for Gold
Finally, we get back to the good stuff, with the twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V taking on a BMW M5 following burnouts by both cars. When the starter signals the two to go, the BMW jumps out to an early lead as the Caddy comes out easy, but once the LSA-powered wagon hammers down, the M5 takes an embarrassing beating.
After a couple more clips of Camaros and Corvettes racing, the CTS-V takes on a Pontiac G8. It looks like a race that the Caddy could win, but when the Holden sedan comes tearing out of the hole, it proves to be too much for the wagon.
Finally, the video ends with two Ford Mustangs racing and one has to lift when the back end comes around, serving as a fitting finish to the video. Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
