Kill Story: Worked Cadillac CTS-V Out-Rolls Just About Everything

By -

LSA power on display as Cadillac super sedan proves it’s racing pedigree.

This Kill Story video was originally shared to the forum in a thread by “AWPer“, who owns and drives this 2012 Cadillac CTS-V. The footage comes from the YouTube channel of dcfjoe, with the camera filming all of the whoopins’ handed out by this supercharged luxury sedan.

Cadillac Beats Hellcat

In stock form, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V was one wicked performance sedan, with the supercharged LSA V8 delivering 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque, but this Caddy isn’t stock. The owner has added a 2.45-inch upper pulley, Texas Speed 2-inch headers, an offroad X-pipe without catalytic convertors, a ported LS7 throttle body, FIC 1000 Injectors, an Airaid cold air intake with Green Filter and the whole system is tuned to run on E85.

With the help of the 6-speed automatic transmission, this CTS-V made 635 horsepower and 643 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. So this Caddy is considerably stronger than it was when stock.

In the video above, this worked CTS-V is participating in a roll racing event in Pacific Junction, Iowa back in June of 2018. The footage begins with an 800-horsepower ProCharged C7 Corvette handing the Caddy a loss, but that run is followed by a string of wins for the CTS-V. Victims include a C7 Z06, a new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, a Hellcat Challenger, a C6 ZR1, a supercharged S197 Mustang GT, a turbocharged 350Z, a turbocharged Honda S2000, a few built BMWs and more.

Most of the races are filmed from a camera on the outside of the Cadillac, so all we can really hear is wind noise, but time after time, we watch the CTS-V walk away from the competition in the high speed roll races.
