We saw the new Caddy CTS in Detroit earlier this year, and we knew it was only time until spy photogs would snap pics of what changes the "V" series version would be getting. And now the never-straight road's got them, neatly coinciding with about the same time that the new CTS is supposed to be hitting the street. Coincidence? More than likely. We've included our gallery of the new CTS below but here's what the kids over at the ever-bending road have to say about what Brenda Priddy has to say about the new CTS-V:
"Priddy reports that the new V will feature an engine currently called the "LSA," which is a new supercharged V-8 good for "at least 500 horsepower." This would be a significant upgrade over the current generation CTS-V's 405 horsepower (from a naturally aspirated 5.7-liter small-block V-8). For transmissions, Cadillac will apparently offer both a manual six-speed and an automatic with paddle shifters."Sounds like a nice power boost if it's true, eh?
