After checking out a multitude of classic cars
over the past few weeks, Jay Leno
switches things up with a modern performance machine in the latest video from the garage – a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V.
Leno is curious about Caddy's
attempt to challenge the BMW M5
and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S
, and he takes a long, technical look at the sedan with chief engineer David Leone. Not content to just peek under the hood, Leno puts the CTS-V
up on the rack to see what it packs underneath the svelte body.
Once he gets the lowdown on the Caddy's engineering, it's time for a drive. Leno also flexes his interviewing skills while behind the wheel and gets even more info about the CTS-V's capabilities from Leone. He seems fairly impressed, but Leno's most entertaining question about the 640-horsepower sedan is whether it can do a burnout. He provides a definitive answer to that at the end of the clip.
