2010 Cadillac CTC, Cadillac CTS Coupe, Spotted From Behind

Illustration for article titled 2010 Cadillac CTC, Cadillac CTS Coupe, Spotted From Behind

Check out the rear end on this 2010 Cadillac CTC, the 2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe but with a 'C' for Coupe instead of an 'S' for Sedan (get it?). Of note is the smooth glasshouse created by the hidden B-pillar and the center-mounted square exhaust pipes contained within the bumper. Also apparent is some sort of hidden door handle, further smoothing out the CTC's lines. Full spy report from KGP after the jump.


The CTS Coupe has dropped a little camouflage, exposing the prototype's B-pillar, and much of the C-pillar for the first time. We can now see Cadillac's extremely clean execution of the side glass, which gives the impression of a B-pillarless design. Prior prototypes had heavy tape and cladding just aft of the Coupe's door opening, which had given the false impression of a less graceful B-pillar design. While all indications are that the CTS Coupe will still have a conventional central side pillar, the clean look now visible on this prototype is pleasing to the eye.

We can also see most of the rear-side-window, and the angle of the C-pillar, which, not surprisingly, matches the design previewed on the CTS Coupe concept. As more camouflage falls away, we expect further confirmation of the Coupe's remarkably faithful transition from Show Car to showroom.
