Even the crazy 16-speaker audio system will do little to drown out this car's crazy loud exhaust note.

This is the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and it’s more powerful than a Lamborghini Huracan. 

This car also celebrates the end of an era for Cadillac as it’s likely the last V8 supercharged car the brand will make.

The high-performance Lamborghini Huracan EVO packs about 640hp, and with 668 hp, this Cadillac will outperform it.

The Blackwing has four seats, so it’s way more practical, too. 

Not only that, but with a starting price of $90,000, it’s also far more affordable.

Blackwing, in case you’re wondering, is the brand’s high-performance badge. 

As such, the Blackwing wears a super sporty exterior, with a blacked-out grille and massive side skirts.

These features contribute to the car’s aggressive and imposing appearance.

Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing interior 

The interior is where this car truly shines. 

It’s covered in Alcantara leather and carbon fiber and has lightweight bucket seats designed for racing. 

This car is entirely driver-focused too. 

The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing comes with a stick shift, which has a lot of people cheering. 

But if this isn’t your thing, you can also opt for the 10-speed automatic.

On the steering wheel, you’ll see there’s a lot going on.

It’s wrapped in leather, wears a race line down the middle, and has carbon fiber finishes. 

It’s also covered in buttons.

You’ve got the V button – this maxes everything out and enables ultimate steering, suspension, and shifting. 

And next to the gear shifter, you’ll find a rev match button. 

If you press this, the car will match the revs of your intended gear so you get a smoother transition. 

The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing also comes with a top-of-the-line infotainment system.

You’ll get a 10-inch touchscreen display, wireless charging, and a 16-speaker audio system. 

But even that 16-speaker audio system will do little to drown out this car’s crazy loud exhaust note.
