Check every single Package and you get up to around $100K, the 6sp starts at $85K, but you could go higher. Not sure you could get them to build you one for under $90K...maybe in a year or two??
Honestly I was expecting it to be priced no more than 100k with every option. For someone like myself who is only able to afford one 100k+ sports model waiting for the Z06 looks like a better buy.
My HPDE instructor said that while the exact ratio or multiplier (whether 1:4 1:3, 1:6 or another value altogether) is difficult or impossible to calculate with high precision, there is no controversy over this statement:What is it - every pound of unsprung weight is the equivalent to 4 lbs of sprung weight?
Yes. CT5 Blackwing is Cadillac's answer to the BMW M5 CS.Is the CT5 Blackwing the equivalent of the CS? Seems like the CS is a package above the M5, deleting luxury equipment, etc. for the sake of performance.
I take that 64 lbs as total for the car or 16 lbs per wheel otherwise that would seem to be way too much. Regardless, a very nice reduction.I had no idea the ceramic brakes were so much lighter - 64 lbs, that's a lot of unsprung weight! What is it - every pound of unsprung weight is the equivalent to 4 lbs of sprung weight?
Right, can't delete what you didn't have in the first place.Yes. CT5 Blackwing is Cadillac's answer to the BMW M5 CS.
I wouldn't necessarily say "deleting luxury equipment," but more along the lines of "focusing more on performance aspects than luxury."
I do like how the M5 CS has the sport bucket seats in the rear as well. Interesting addition.
Yes, the 64 lbs is the combined savings from all four brakes, 18 lbs a brake - I had no idea ceramics saved that much weight.I take that 64 lbs as total for the car or 16 lbs per wheel otherwise that would seem to be way too much. Regardless, a very nice reduction.
