CTS V is a great car. I had a CTS until I ran into a little bit of hail ($14,000 worth). Fantastic car.

One could look at a CTS as a 4 door vette. (sort of)

The coupe must be great looking!

(And 8 seconds around the N ring is much faster than even an F-16)...lol

No longer the record for a production Sedan. The Porsche Panamera beat it not long ago. While the coupe is new, the sedan has been out for over a year.

The CTS-V has 15 way Recaro seats.

All I want to know is where are mine?

When you look at a supercharged engine similar to the ZR1 and a price similar to or less than a Z06 and factor in that CTS is mighty good looking car, I think there is a strong possibility of a CTS-V coupe in my future.

Currently I have a CTS seden of the DI-AWD variety to fulfill family and bad weather service and that is a terrific car. We have been extremely pleased with it and I would buy a second in a heartbeat. I'll have to stop in soon at my local Cadillac dealer and see about eyeballing one first hand.

Default Look out Porsche

I have a 997tt (modified) and a 2010 CTSV. Now I cant let their sedan beat ours so I am adding pulleys, CAI, etc (basically the Lingenfelter set-up) plus AR headers.........look out Pannamerra I am leaving the stock exhaust..........it will be a true sleeper. The Pannamerra is one beautiful car though.

Isn't the Sedan 4200 lbs? If that number is correct then 556 hp at ~ 3950 lbs will be a monster.

The CTS-V Sedan at 556 HP is about as fast (around the N-ring) as a stock 400 HP LS2 Corvette, so whatever extra weight you are adding is being dealt with by the Horsepower increase.

Comparing it to the Z06 isn't good in terms of weight and lap times.

It would sure be the sedan for me if I had the need for a sedan. That said, I am glad I can drive the Vert as a daily driver.
