2009 Cadillac CTS-V 4dr Sedan (6.2L 8cyl S/C 6M)


I first drove this car at Monticello in a marketing event. I was hooked. I bought the loaded Reacaro version with an automatic and I can tell you: this car is the real deal. It is a beast on the road and a beauty to behold. Loaded with luxury, handles lke a much lighter car, and will simply plant your head and body in the back of your seat whenever you ask. Here's a little secret: the ZR-1 engine is in this pup. You can easily get this engine to produce way more horsepower. In fact GM built it in such a way that it almost begs to be upgraded. A pulley here, new headers and cat back there, tune the tranny and engine, and there is nothing under 100k that can catch this car. Buy if you dare.

Best Features

Power. Comfort, luxury, handling. Beauty

Worst Features

Add back up camera; take the crimps out of the exhaust pipes and let it breathe; retune the engine for better gas mileage, raise the rev limiter, cut the weight, make a coupe out of this critter and wave bye bye to the M6, CL63, McClaren Benz, and every other car other than a ZR-1 for less than 150k
