The CTS-V Coupe joins the sensational CTS-V fire breathing four-door saloon and Sport Wagon, and if you haven’t heard about that car, then let me enlighten you.
Powered by a Supercharged OHV 6.2-litre LSA V-8 based on the revered Chevy Corvette C6 ZR1 with outputs of 415 kW and a colossal 747 Nm of torque, the CTS-V is a ferocious bit of performance kit.
Until July 2009, the supercharged Caddy held the fastest time (7:59.32) for a four-door sedan on road tyres at the famed Nurburgring, in Germany. It was eventually beaten by a Porsche Panamera Turbo, which clocked 7:56.00
It’s an unusual looking vehicle, but one that pushes the design envelope beyond the standard boundaries although, the sheer performance of the car is enough to excite any enthusiast worth their salt.
The CTS-V Coupe gets the same drivetrain as its sedan sibling, so would can assume that acceleration from 0-100km/h in around four seconds flat and at the end of a 12.0 quarter mile run at 190km/h, is highly probable.
The interior is especially nice with acres of hand-stitched soft leather, and sports seats armed with massive side bolster. There’s also a superb Alcantara steering wheel and a suite of luxury features in the CTS.
