The company also announced that the next-generation V-Series models are currently in development and will be unveiled next year.
Cadillac’s CTS-V Coupe has a design meant to be a distinct visual expression of the mechanical preciseness and performance ability of the vehicle.
The CTS-V Coupe has a wheelbase identical to what’s found in the CTS-V Sport Sedan, but its total height is almost two inches (51 mm) less, and its total length is two inches (51 mm) smaller. The two models only share their instrument panels, consoles, headlights, front fenders, and grilles.
Key features are:
• Classic hardtop style, with no typical B-pillar
• Touch-pad door operations takes away any need for standard handles in the doors
• Faster windscreen angle (62.3 degrees) and an almost lateral back glass allow a streamlined silhouette
• Trademark upright lighting, accented with LED pipes
• Trademark centre high-mounted stop light acts as a rear spoiler
• Streamlined roof antenna for OnStar and XM Satellite Radio
The CTS-V Coupe uses a LSA 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that also appeared on the CTS-V Sport Sedan. Clocked at 556 hp (415 kW) and with 551 lb.-ft. torque (747 Nm), it is the most commanding engine available in the history of Cadillac and it thrusts the CTS-V Coupe from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
