Cadillac's 2009 CTS-V with its 556 hp ultimate performance major engine will begin production this month and witness preliminary sales beginning early November.
This is the most recent of the V-series of extremely impressive performance models which intends to reach the top of the list of the world's most coveted cars, and having a bottom price of $59,995 (EUR44,700) in the American market.
Patterned after the highly celebrated CTS sports sedan, the CTS-V model displays the brand's benchmark of outstanding technology and design.
The CTS-V was prepared to enter the sphere of the fastest and most exclusive luxury sedans on the planet since it is equipped with advanced performance technology such as the super powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine and a Magnetic Ride Control, known as the fastest reacting suspension system in the world.
Standard to the CTS-V are a handcrafted cabin, a six-speed manual transmission and a surround sound system from Bose equipped with 40 gigabyte of hard drive and a USB port.
Options are expanded through the availability of a new six-speed automatic transmission with the shift buttons conveniently located on the steering wheel, Recaro performance seats that can be adjusted in 14 different ways, interior accents made of microfiber, and a large sunroof.
Mark McNabb, North America vice president for Cadillac/Premium Channel, remarked that the new CTS-V presents a compelling proposition for consumers enthused with luxury and performance. He quipped that the CTS-V offers a strong statement on Cadillac design and technology, adding that the vehicle is the latest addition to the club of the highest performing luxury cars.
According to McNabb, the CTS-V -- along with the new Escalade Hybrid – plays a vital role in Cadillac’s revival as it combines dramatic styling and sophisticated technologies that would appeal to luxury consumers.
He remarked that the new Escalade Hybrid and the CTS-V are the first of many offerings that Cadillac plans for 2009, like the CTS Sport Wagon and SRX Crossover.
