In the early 2000's Cadillac was looking to reinvent itself with edgy styling and they were looking to attract the younger generation over from BMW, Mercedes and Lexus. The V-Series was born. General Motors had just launched the “Corvette Racing Program” in 1999 and it was decided that they would enter the prototype program with the Cadillac. This was Cadillacs first factory efforts since it hired Briggs Cunningham to build its Series 61 and the “LeMonstra”. Cadillac enlisted the help of Riley & Scott to spear head the program. They developed a new car based loosely on the much successful Mk III C chassis. General Motors had much experience and success with its Indy Racing engine program and they used this engine as a twin-turbo version.
A total of seven chassis were built, two went to the U.S. team, three to the French DAMS team, one a show car and one a test car.
After the 2000 season, Cadillac enlisted the help of Mazda's Le Mans winner, Nigel Stroud. Nigel revised the aero of the car. The cars received a shorter and flatter body work, which is what you see the car as today. This particular car finished just off the podium behind the Audi R8's on 3 of 4 occasions in the 2001 season as high as 4th.
This car was run by Riley & Scott, except during the 2001 LeMans 24, it was run by DAMS. It was driven by the likes of Wayne Taylor, Max “The Ax” Angelelli, Butch Litzinger, Christophe Tinseau, Emmanuel Collard and Marc Goossens.
This particular chassis was raced at:
• LeMans Test-2000
• LeMans 24-2000
• ALMS Portland-2000
• ALMS Petit LeMans-2000
• LeMans Test-2001
• LeMans 24-2001
• ALMS Mostport-2001
• ALMS Petit LeMans-2001
