Upon its unveiling in February, Cadillac revealed the following about its brakes:
Track-capable braking systems
The V-Series Blackwing models feature advanced high-performance braking systems that have been extensively track and road-tested. The exclusive V-Series Blackwing wheel designs enable an even larger rotor over the previous CTS-V.

Staggered Brembo® six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers
High-performance copper-free brake linings comply with California law and deliver superior fade resistance with an excellent pedal feel on and off the track
Brake systems are integrated to each vehicles’ selectable drive modes, including brake pedal feel. Brake pedal feel can also be assigned within My-Mode and V-Mode.
The CT4-V Blackwing, along with its larger sibling CT5-V Blackwing, go on sale later this summer in limited numbers.
