Since its 2004 birth, the Cadillac CTS-V has gone from a frustratingly incomplete car to one of the best performance vehicles in the world. And with the all-new 2016 model sporting the Corvette Z06’s stellar LT4 engine, Cadillac’s message to the world’s super sedans is clear: we’re coming for you.
The short clip opens with a BMW already rocketing several feet above the race course, cresting a hill. The car’s nose begins to dive, appearing to travel over 150 feet before making a very gruesome landing.
BMW’s departure from the familiar nomenclature of the past has been received with mixed reviews from the dedicated German sports car community.

Claims that the M5 lacks guts, that the suspension is soft and mushy, and that the sports car temperament has been eliminated have fueled the fires of doubt about the new M4. The BMW faithful fear that a similar fate awaits the new M4, after all, the engineers who designed the M5 are still around.
