2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe 6MT Walkaround, Start Up, Exhaust, Review
Have a look at GM's aggressively styled CTS Coupe, the monster Corvette ZR1
motor makes it even more interesting, but if you ask our senior editor
Christian, he might say that the interior fit and finish needs some work to
keep up with those pricey Europeans.
"Though its practicality is disappointing, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
delivers a combination of world-class performance, style and value that's
tough to beat."

2014 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Test Drive & High-Performance Luxury Car Video Review
The first generation Cadillac CTS-V debuted back in 2004 and came with an
engine out of a C5 generation Corvette. This CTS-V flew under the radar for
a few years until the release of the second generation car back in 2009.
This model turned the automotive world on its side thanks to a
fire-breathing supercharged V-8 motor that made 556 horsepower and set a factory
production sedan lap record at the Nürburgring ring. Then in 2011 we got
CTS-V coupe and wagon models. The price on the 2014 Cadillac CTS-V coupe is

Cadillac does a great job of distinguishing their V-Series cars and the
CTS-V has a handful of cues that tell the eagle-eyed enthusiast this car
means business. First thing you notice is the shiny mesh, aggressive lower
front fascia, massive black rims, and red Brembo brake calipers. The coupe
itself is a cool looking car with the angular shape and metallic paint job.
Out back the CTS-V sports an integrated rear wing and a trick center mount
Under the hood is where the magic happens. The 2014 Cadillac CTS-V is
powered by an LSA engine taken from a Corvette ZR-1. This Supercharged 6.2
Liter V-8 makes a whopping 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of
torque. The power is sent through a 6-speed transmission (auto or manual)
to the rear wheels. This luxury coupe looks good, sounds good, feels good,
and most importantly goes like a bat out of hell. The interior is very
driver focused. The model tested here is outfitted with the $3400 Recaro
performance seating package. An Alcantara treatment is given to the
steering wheel and shift knob.
The real thrill of any V-Series Cadillac is driving it. The CTS-V offers
you a great driving position with an unobstructed view of the road. More
importantly though is the great engine and gearbox sending that power to
the rear wheels which means fun. The ride is perfect thanks to the
Magnetic-Controlled shocks that are usually found on high priced exotics.
Now this may be the swan song for the Cadillac CTS-V coupe edition and if
so we will always smile about how it lived.

2013 Cadillac ELR
Electric Concept Car Comes to Life as Cadillac ELR
Luxury touring coupe gets extended-range electric vehicle technology
DETROIT - The innovative Cadillac Converj Concept, a dramatic luxury coupe
with extended-range electric vehicle technology, is moving forward as a
production car that will be called the Cadillac ELR.
Development of the ELR is just underway, so details on performance, price
and timing will be announced later.
The Cadillac ELR will feature an electric propulsion system made up of a
T-shaped lithium ion battery, an electric drive unit, and a four-cylinder
engine-generator. It uses electricity as its primary source to drive the
car without using gasoline or producing tailpipe emissions. When the
battery's energy is low, the ELR seamlessly switches to extended-range mode
to enable driving for hundreds of additional miles.
"The concept generated instant enthusiasm," said Don Butler, vice
president-Cadillac Marketing. "Like other milestone Cadillac models of the
past, the ELR will offer something not otherwise present - the combination
of electric propulsion with striking design and the fun of luxury coupe
Cadillac selected the name ELR to indicate the car's electric propulsion
technology, in keeping with the brand's 3-letter international model naming
The Converj Concept sparked the idea of combining the desirability of a
grand touring coupe with electrification, said Ed Welburn, GM vice
president, Global Design.
"There's no mistaking it for anything but a Cadillac, an aggressive,
forward-leaning profile and proportion showcases a uniquely shaped, modern
vision of a personal luxury 2+2," Welburn said.
Cadillac will reveal another new concept car on Thursday, Aug. 18, at a
special event prior to the annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Cadillac also recently announced it will add two new vehicles to its
product lineup in 2012, the XTS large luxury sedan and an all-new luxury
compact sedan codenamed ATS.
