Those press shots of the new sub-V class concept Cadillac CTS Sport? They just don't do this car justice. That's because the grille? It's just not attractive. Not in the least. It's actually the antithesis of attractive. I'd be happy to see a normal CTS with this engine, but as it currently stands, I'd rather gouge out my eyeballs than be seen driving this car around town. It's just that garish. Don't believe us? See for yourself in the shots below and check out the full press release after the jump. Maybe we'll be able to make one with the grille-delete option.
