Cadillac is teasing even more powerful CT4-V and CT5-V performance sedans than the versions unveiled last Thursday.

Last Thursday, Cadillac took the covers off the CT4-V and the CT5-V. While they’re both good-looking cars and have some very nice engines, neither of them were exactly up there with the BMW M3 or Audi RS4.

For the CT5-V, a 3.0-L twin-turbo V6 with 355 horsepower. For the CT4-V, a 2.7-L twin-turbo 4-cylinder with 320 hp. Both receive 10-speed automatic transmissions, big Brembo calipers in the front, and a limited-slip rear differential (although the CT5’s is electronic and the CT4’s is mechanical). Cadillac’s Super Cruise adaptive cruise control and semi-autonomous highway driving was also announced as available.

But the BMW M3 makes 425 horsepower, while the Audi RS4 makes 444 horsepower. How is Cadillac supposed to compete with its German counterparts if they don’t even come close to their power figures?

Well Cadillac fans, never fear. There’s another set of V-Series sedans coming, and they’re going to be even more impressive than the ones Cadillac has already unveiled.

We got our first look at them last Saturday at the Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan. Both the CT4-V and CT5-V were wrapped in colorful camouflage that honestly looks better than the base paint jobs, and were driven by General Motors President Mark Reuss and GM Vice President of Global Products Ken Morris.

What we see looks very similar to the recently unveiled V-Series models, but with a few notable differences. Behind the mesh covering the front fascia appears to be a slightly redesigned grille with slatted side air vents, as well as a flatter, more streamlined hood. At the back, a larger Gurney flap spoiler can be seen along with a quad square-tipped exhaust.

We don’t know what might be hiding under either of their hoods, but we can perhaps imagine a big twin-turbo V8 to take on the Germans.

Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date, along with the specs for these colorful luxury performance sedans.
