I honestly think the CT4-V Blackwing would have a hard time with the M240i given that itís AWD. However, Iíd take the Blackwing all day every day as the better driverís car (with a manual).

The Blackwing is the only one that you can time with a calendar. But in reality, it's a nice car to drive.

The Blackwing is priced at the M2 level, I would hope it offers better performance. When you spec it out it's generally even more than the M2 too.

Thatís NOT a Blackwing. Itís the regular V with a turbo 4 cylinder.

One of slowest BMWís vs fastest VW and Cadillac in its class

An old man's car has a pretty good shot at winning LeMans this year then.

They would if the race was sanctioned by IMSA... I imagine that car is going to be nerfed into the ground before it even hits the Mulsanne lol.

RE: this drag race - all it shows is that the M240i is still a unique data point of performance and price point.

I guess it's just because my grandpa would buy a new Cadillac every 3 years or so. The association is hard for me to let go of. 😅

Ha ha! Mine too! But that was actually in the 1980s.

CT4 looks like as if it's standing still compared to the BMW and VW.
