Cadillac CTS-V Coupe: First Look

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe has made its camouflaged debut with huge wheels, bulging bodywork and a far more aggressive attitude to go along with all the "V" details one might expect.


Mr. Siler better get his box of superlatives out, because the new CTS-V coupe is shaping up to be one sexy beast. This well-developed mule is sporting all kinds of upgraded goodies, most noticeable are the bulging hood and wider fenders holding some fat low profile tires, the mesh grille each V-entry gets, taped-over badging on the doors and apparently around back there's a set of center exit exhaust tips poking out. We expect no less than the rip-roaring 6.2 liter supercharged, 556 HP V8 from the CTS-V sedan, and apparently function has won out over form, with the brake rotors going to a solid design rather than the flashy but lower performance cross-drilled rotors. We can't wait to see this thing in action. [Detroit News]
