keep up with those pricey Europeans.

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.

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.
