click above image to view live high-res pics of the Cadillac CTS Sport

The new Cadillac CTS already has enough angles to get an A in geometry. If you take all those angles and sharpen them up Reventon-style, then sneeze some carbon fiber at it, you get this: the Cadillac CTS Sport Concept. This is the kind of exercise that could tip over into "whoa," but all thanks be to GM that it doesn't. Well, except for the 20-inch dubs and yellow brake calipers, but we can let a little excess slide -- it is SEMA after all.

Carbon fiber makes copious appearances on the altered front and rear fascias and trims things like the fender extractors. LED beauty is the order of the day, with LED trim in the headlights, a beautiful set of export taillights (and why don't we get those?), and LEDs in the brake ducts in the lower front fascia. And there are two words for the OnStar antenna: land shark. Go-time comes courtesy of the 304-hp 3.6L engine with a cat-back exhaust blowing out 3.5-inch square, chromed apertures. And check out that rear diffuser. Hot.

Inside sources tell us that you're basically looking at the body of the forthcoming CTS-V here, so soak it up in the high-res gallery below.

      From the orange stand display sign:
      Clear tail-lights (future accessory)
      Recaro sport bucket seats (future accessory)

      Nice options to have.

      I like the new Cadillac CTS sport concept. Sweet lines!!!One of my cousin and his best friend both purchased previous models. If my cousin was still alive he would have love it. (He pass away in a senseless drive by shooting earlier this year-May 2007 case still under investigation...)

      American cars must reflect orange and the front and red at the back when viewed from the side.

      Whereas in Europe, the car simply must reflect red at the back when viewed from the back (I don't know about the front, but it could be similar).

      Because of this, taillights and turn signals are usually placed on the corners of the car, so they can reflect from the front, back and sides.

      In Europe, to put taillights like this on, they simply add additional red reflectors elsewhere on the back of the car. You can see these above the exhaust pipes on this car. However, there are no red reflectors on the side of the car at the rear, so this taillight combination is not US legal.

      The european-style SRX taillights look even better, I saw them in China.

      I love the CTS, and it looks really sharp in this color. Those wheels, however, are too much.

      The current production CTS on 18s looks better.

      The seats in that car look pretty serious...

      Maybe it's the color of the car, but it just doesn't look right to me.
      I think the CTS is a beautifully styled car, but this is a bit overdone. Then again, it could be the color. And I really don't like the taillights.
      It could be the color that floors me.
