Car & Driver: Now Free with Purchase of V! Cadillac Offers Performance Customers Track Instruction


Recommended Posts

2016 Cadillac CTS-V


Cadillac’s been serious about playing up the track-ready aspects of the ATS-V and CTS-V—they are indeed quite track-ready—and now they’re taking it a step further, throwing in a two-day track program at the V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch for those who pony up the dosh for a new 2017 V car.


While students who shell out the money to attend the school without buying a car get their choice of CTS-V or ATS-V to wheel, those who are attending on the new-purchase plan are limited to the same model they bought. Either way, the new owner gets travel from McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, two nights of lodging in the condos at the track, three square meals, and, of course, the instruction. A night out in bumpin’ Pahrump, however, comes at their own expense.


Track instruction includes skidpad, slalom, and steering exercises, as well as time on Cadillac’s particular configuration of Spring Mountain’s multilayout course. If two days in Vegas is time prohibitive and you’re closer to COTA or Lime Rock, Cadillac’s also offering its touring V-Performance Lab, a one-day school, at those locations this fall. The Connecticut classes are October 20–22, while the Austin event is slated for November 18–20. But let’s face it, you want the two-day shebang in Nevada.


While the price of the course is included in the price of the car, airfare to Las Vegas is not. But hey, they’ve got slot machines in the airport. You’re practically guaranteed to win back the cost of your flight.
