The Cadillac V-Series is the name of high-performance vehicles tuned by the General Motors Performance Division for the Cadillac division of General Motors. Models in the V-Series include the CTS-V, the STS-V and the Cadillac XLR-V. Cadillac reportedly has no plans to create V-Series versions of its SUVs, the Escalade and SRX.
All V-Series Cadillacs feature high-performance V8 engines mated to six-speed transmissions, more aggressively tuned braking and suspension systems, revised interiors and special V-series bodywork which is intended to improve vehicle performance as well as differentiate them from their normal production counterparts.
Cadillac has also re-entered Motorsport competition with their CTS-V R, a joint venture between GM Performance Division and Pratt&Miller race team, most famous for their role in GM's Le Mans winning Corvette C5-R program.
In addition to the Corvette and Camaro, the V designation draws comparisons to other high-performance models by GM such as the Super Sport series, Chrysler's SRT, and Ford SVT line of high-performance vehicles.
