Head to Head: 2017 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2017 BMW M5

For years, BMW’s M5 was the unquestioned king of the full-size sports sedans — and for good reason. While the 5 Series it’s based on has always been a capable performer, the wizards at the company’s M division massively upped the ante with the M5. It’s the vehicular equivalent of an executive vice president who’s as comfortable in a cage fight as they are in the boardroom. But even kings don’t live forever, as Cadillac well knows. Once known as the pinnacle of luxury, the brand floundered during the malaise…

OK, if we’re going to be looking at the 2017 Lexus GS F and the 2017 BMW M3? We should probably make something clear from the get-go. Because while the BMW M3 has a long and storied history in the enthusiast community, today’s version isn’t exactly the M3 of yore.

That’s called the M4, for a…

But if this new spy video it to be believed, you might just get your wish. Captured at the Nurburgring by Automotive Mike, it shows a partially camouflaged example tearing up the infamous circuit, and it’s wearing a set of flared fenders which aren’t seen on the current models, along with a set of wheels from the AMG GT….
