DESIGNED FOR THE FUTURE 

Co-developed by Cadillac Racing, Cadillac Design and Dallara, the final V-Series.R design was informed by the Project GTP Hypercar that debuted last summer. It incorporates distinctive Cadillac design elements such as vertical lighting and floating blades.

The livery designs for the three all-new electrified V-Series.R race cars represent a different bold color from the Cadillac V-Series emblem—No. 01 in gold, No. 02 in blue and red on No. 31.
