On a racing tear.

Last year, Cadillac announced a return to the top level of endurance racing and rolled out a new car - the DPi-V.R, powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine cranking out 600 horsepower.


Nobody ever expects dominant performances from racing newbies, but that's just what Cadillac has delivered.

At the Rolex 24 at Daytona earlier this year, the DPi-V.R went 1-2. And at the Sebring 12 Hours in March, the Daytona-winner team of Rickey Taylor and Jordan Taylor, in their No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac, once again took the win, with the other two Caddy teams finishing 2-3, making for a podium sweep.

Cadillac brought the Sebring-winning DPi-V.R to the New York Auto Show, more or less fresh from the track.
