A Cadillac that can sprint from 0-60 in under four seconds? No, it is not a misprint. The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V packs a serious automotive punch and is sure to transform any motoring experience, whether picking up extra seconds on the Nurburgring or picking up the kids from school. To be sure, this Caddy is not mincing words. Available in Sedan or all-new Coupe variants, the Cadillac CTS-V marries traditional Cadillac ergonomic excellence with one of the most impressive performance platforms in recent memory. The CTS-V is designed to reassert Cadillac’s dominance over the likes of its super-coupe rivals. In this vehicle, Cadillac has created a machine which takes on the BMW M3, Lexus IS-F, and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
Sporting a massive 6.2L V-8, which will be shared with the upcoming 2012 Camaro ZL-1, the CTS-V truly pounds the pavement with over 550-hp and about the same amount of torque. That’s massive, Earth’s-rotation-altering torque. This meanest of all Cadillacs is available with two transmissions: a six-speed automatic and a six-speed manual for those who crave more control over their machine. The CTS-V is shod with sticky Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 rubber set on 19-inch alloys. The rear wheels sport massive 285/35-section rear tires. Everything about this car suggests big, bad, all-others-sit-up-and-take-notice levels of performance.
It would not be a Cadillac, however, without the requisite level of interior comfort buyers have come to expect. Leather seats come standard, as do the 19-inch wheels, LED shift lights, and an internal 40 GB hard drive for music storage. Satnav is optional, as is a sunroof and racy, 14-way adjustable seats made by Recaro. As always, the CTS-V provides a comfortable, effortless ride for the commute home, or a perception-altering performance machine. The difference is a flex of your right foot away.
