Cadillac CTS-V Coupe debuting for 2011

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
Cadillac has released details of the 2011 CTS-V Coupe, which debuts at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show this month. It combines the new CTS Coupe’s body with the 556 hp supercharged V8 from the CTS-V sedan.

The CTS-V Coupe uses the LSA 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine. Rated at 556 hp and 747 Nm of torque, it is the most powerful engine offered in Cadillac’s history and propels the CTS-V Coupe in 4.1 seconds on the 0-100 kph sprint. It can be mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic.

Its suite of technical and performance elements includes Magnetic Ride Control, racing-bred Brembo brakes and an available automatic transmission with paddle-shift control.

The V-Series Coupe includes a unique grille that doubles the car’s air intake volume, visually identified by a raised centre section of the bonnet that provides clearance for the supercharger, as well as specific front and rear fascias. Like the CTS Coupe, its exhaust is centered inside the rear fascia, but with unique twin outlets. The car rolls on 19-inch cast aluminum wheels, available in either painted or polished finishes, and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 performance tyres.

Inside, the 2+2 cabin has new Saffron interior trim colour, with contrasting microfibre seat inserts and stitching on the upper trim areas. Infotainment features include a 40-gigabyte hard drive, advanced navigation system with a deployable screen and Bose digital surround audio, as well as factory-installed Bluetooth phone integration, all standard features on the V-Series.

The Coupe has the same wheelbase as the CTS-V Sport Sedan, but its overall height is about 50 mm lower and its overall length is 50 mm shorter. The two models share only the instrument panel, console, headlamps, front fenders and grille. The centre high-mounted stop lamp functions as a rear spoiler.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe debuts at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and begins production this summer. It should reach UAE and other GCC countries by the winter of 2010.

  1. woow…the coolest Cadillac ever 😮

  2. Although I don’t like American cars because of their big engines.. but this car has put mercedes amg c63 to shame… because cts-v coupe is 6.2 v8 >> gives you 556hp and mercedes amg c63 is 6.2 v8 >> gives you 450hp with the same size of engine and both are turbo charged…(not fan of bmw either)
