It hasn't been a secret for a long time that Cadillac is prepping a high performance V edition of its upcoming CTS coupe. It's also no secret that we're big fans of the CTS-V in the virtual Autoblog office. And yet Cadillac continues to tease us by putting camo on the nose and fanny of its two-door CTS-V prototypes. Why must they mock us?
The nose of the V coupe is pretty clearly visible in these images and is essentially much the same as we've already seen on the sedan down to its mesh grille.

Out back, it appears the coupe will carry the center mount exhaust pipes from the concept coupe of January 2008. However, the V gets big round pipes in place of the shield shaped unit on the concept. Mechanically we don't expect any significant changes from the sedan and frankly, that's just ducky with us.

      I noticed a white Olds Firenza sedan in the background of one of those pics. Been a while since I have seen one of those. My Dad bought my Mom a new one back in the '80s. Man oh man did I hate that car!

        With good reason.

      Still it beats me why anyone would want to buy Cadillac idoesn't have much bran value while you can buy Lexus, Acura or Infinity which have better quality or BMW/Benz if you want marquee name value.

        Name a 500+ HP Acura, Lexus, Mercedes or BMW that is under $75 grand brand new. Please

        Cadillac's star has been rising for a while now. Everyone who knows about cars knows at the very least Cadillac is a brand to respect.

        Ohhh I don't know; because some people buy cars to drive them and enjoy them, not just to re-sell them?

        Just a thought...

      So they're keeping the ridiculous behind that was shown in the concept? I would have had this over an m3 if it wasn't for that retarded back side. Makes it look like the BMW x6's uglier cousin.

        You and I seem to be the only people who think the CTS coupe has ridiculous behind.

        I keep saying the trunk is too short and too high. The belt line is too high... and that it looks like a hatchback.

        And they say I'm crazy and I don't understand... lol...

        @Jung

        I completely agree. I was starting to think I was alone in that line of thinking what with all the endless praise this thing gets.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Totally disagree. It's the pure, simple planes of the back end of this car that makes the whole design work.

        But I sure hope they make it possible to just turn on the rear view cam and leave it on.

      "These photos, shot in the last 24 hours,......" Like hell. I know summer did not exist this year in Michigan but thats an awful lot of snow seen in the background of some of those shots.
