So regular readers might recall my waxing poetic about my friend's new 2019 CT6 Blackwing. I got to drive it for a couple hours during a trip to Maine and back.
The car felt like it was from the Kizashi family, like a steroid-raged big brother. It had a similar reaction to inputs, feeling oddly, in many ways, literally like the Kizashi.
It drove very small for its 122" wheelbase and 205.6" length.
Its steering feel had that similar artificial minimal feedback, but at its depth offered some information about the front tires.
Brakes mimicked the second-tap immediacy of the Kizashi, although they had a bigger anchor.
The suspension (I drove it in Sport mode only) had the similar suppleness of the Kizashi, but firmed up more with its magic stuff during cornering. Given its better front/rear balance, it never felt like it was planting the front end (coughs in understeer), it stayed, and felt, considerably more neutral over its tires.
So, just driving at more 'normal' pace, it literally felt uncannily like my car(s).
Except, the car vibrated with its hidden thermonuclear reactor under the hood, maliciously coiled, eagerly awaiting a summons to unleash its snarling fury.
Which I requested.
Which it unleashed.
The Caddy danced with me; it's a dancer!
Ah to dream..........
