Full review, track battle, and drag race of the Blackwing versus Plaid versus BMW M5 CS — what better way to find out why the top dog Cadillac is an icon?

In this episode, Jason Cammisa reviews the CT5-V Blackwing along with the CT4-V Blackwing and the BMW M5 CS, and brings along a TMS Plaid to show why future Blackwings will be electric.

SCCA Hall of Fame race-car driver Randy Pobst breaks the sedan lap record at Willow Springs (Big Willow) three times in one episode: which of these 3 super-sedans is quickest around a track?

The episode starts out with a drag race to see which one is quickest in a straight line — and the results might surprise you.

This is the definitive review of the CT5-V and the most sideways review of the BMW M5 and its incredible AWD system.
