2018 Cadillac CT6 Hiding a V8 ?

A 2018 Cadillac CT6 was spotted in Australia with no camouflage at all. There was a "V6TT" badge spotted but something was different. Upon closer inspection, the trapezoidal exhaust pipes in the rear bumper seemed to have been replaced with quad tips.

Think it's possible that there's actually a V8 hiding under the hood ? From what I've read, Cadillac promised a 4.2L Twin-Turbo V8 engine for the future and this could potentially be it right here ?

Thoughts ? Would you want one with a V8 TT or the smaller engines like the 2.0 LTG Turbo Four or the 3.0L LGW TT 6 banger ?

My 2017 CT6 with its tiny little 3.6L engine has quad tips as seen in the photo, so not sure that would suggest a V8 powered vehicle.

Like what was mentioned right above me, there's nothing to go off of here to suggest it has a V8, exhaust tips aren't enough of a confirmation or means of speculation. Maybe if there was a video of this idling or driving by and it sounds like a V8... then we have something to start with.

V8 TT might be for a sedan or suv in a flagship segment, sitting above the CT6 and anything on a similar platform to it, only way I can make sense of it.

Hm... so I was definitely wrong.

I can see what you're saying about having a V8 TT in a flagship segment now that I'm really thinking of this. It'll be a massive engine that'll produce some massive power. It would have to be fed into a V of some sort. Something like the future CT8 sedan perhaps ? That thing looks like it'll mesh perfectly with a v8 twin turbo
