Cadillac V-Performance Academy
The Cadillac V-series of coupes and sedans are some of the most impressive vehicles in the entire luxury automobile industry. Models like the compact Cadillac ATS-V (both versions) and the full-size CTS-V have the components and engineering behind them to go directly from the Don Wheaton showroom to the racetrack. Most people lack the training to truly take full advantage of the performance capable from either of the Cadillac V-series cars. The automaker is taking steps to ensure owners and drivers leaving nothing on the table when they get behind the wheel of one of these outstanding machines with the Cadillac V-Performance Academy.
“The V-Series are the most-track capable Cadillac models ever, using exclusive technologies tuned by a select group of dedicated engineers,” Brandon Vivian, Cadillac executive chief engineer said in Cadillac press release. “These technologies, such as Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management software and the Performance Data Recorder, set the Cadillac ATS-V and Cadillac CTS-V apart from all other luxury cars and are the tools drivers will experience at the V-Performance Academy.”

What is the Cadillac V-Performance Academy?
Cadillac finds some of the best drivers in the world to take average owners of cars like the ATS-V and CTS-V and teach them everything they need to know to get the most of these machines. Don Wheaton customers that would like to get in on this kind of training will have to make a trip to the United States to get the training. There are two experiences for a driver to choose from, Cadillac V-Performance Lab and Cadillac V-Performance Academy.
