The first production examples of the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe are hitting dealer showrooms as you read this, and whether you're seriously considering buying your own 556-horsepower coupe or just feel like killing a little time dreaming, Cadillac now has a fully-functional configurator online.

It takes at least $63,465 (plus another $825 for destination) to get your own super-Caddy, which comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, navigation and premium sound system. Another $3,400 nets you a set of race-ready Recaro performance seats, and if you opt for the up-level thrones, a suede-rimmed steering wheel and shift knob combo is available for another $300. If rowing your own gear isn't appealing, you ought to be ashamed of yourself the six-speed automatic is a $1,300 option. Check every conceivable box, including an up-level paint job and you're looking at a $72,560 sticker. That's a lot of cheddar no matter how you slice it, but a quick comparison against the other mega-performance coupes on the market shows that this Caddy is a relative bargain. Have fun configuring your own blown two-door Caddy. Thanks for the tip, Khalid!

      That is the worst car configurator -- I made my CTS-V in like five seconds.

      Great looking except for the rear.

      Got one thing to say when i see the back end... Rrribbit. Seriously though, that old first gen supercharger pic in the marketing material needs to go. The top of the supercharger has been completely different looking, replacing the aluminum rribbs with a stainless access panel since the last quarter of 08.

      I have never been a Cadillac fan but this car is starting to grow on me.

      In EVERY SINGLE German internet post, magazine article and TV story where there is some overpriced German car with a disgusting amount of options, NO ONE ever has the balls to call them out on their ridiculous pricing.

      But you get any American car that costs more than $40k or $50k and immediately price becomes the biggest focus of the article.

      I am so sick of that crap.

      We aren't talking about some $60 or $70k Cimmeron... we are talking about a fantastic piece of machinery that is competitive with any car out there. So why shouldn't they charge what the Germans charge? Hell... why not charge MORE than what the Germans charge for once?

      The BMW M5 - without a single option - starts at about $86k. This CTS-V with essentially every option in the book is $10k less - it should be considered a "bargain."

      Silver with black Recaros, a six speed, and done.
        • 4 Years Ago
        6-speed manual of course, duh.

      Dallas area has 1 at almost every Caddy dealer. All the same price ($74k), all grey. I'd go for the all black w/Recaros, 6M. Which is about $69k.

      Why buy this when you can get a used scion tc for $60,000 less? Plus it has toyota reliability.

        Isn't BMWs competitor to the CTS-V coupe the M6? As in the hot version of the coupe version of the midsize luxury segment? In which case it starts at 102k.

        Suddhodana: The GTS has a wing, cage, tires, and other track stuff. I can do the things they did to the GTS in a weekend in my garage.

        Wrong in so many ways Greenthumb...

        First of all: the current M3 lapped the ring in about 8:05 while the cobalt ss did it in 8:22. Not even close, almost 20 seconds is a huge gap. The OLD M3 did it in 8:22. Dont get confused.

        The CTS-V stands at 7:59 but the M3 GTS is faster for sure. So BMW DOES make a car thats faster than a CTS-V. With 100 HP less by the way.

        EngineersView: The only thing I see here that is stupid, was your statement. Don't have a problem with you preferring the M3. However, unless you've been living under the sea, you'd know that the M3 is nowhere near the CTS-V's league. Hell, didn't the Cobalt SS lap the 'ring about as fast as the M3.

        Yeah, I know its tough to swallow, but nothing that BMW currently makes can run with the CTS-V.

      Well seeing as you have not figured it out, I'll tell ya! This GM POS will start to fall apart 10 seconds after warranty expiration or maybe sooner. The M5 won't. Of course this will enable GM to eventually get $86k for the crapbox in spare parts and service work. It's a bargain all right, just don't keep it past it's warranty. Every CTS owner I know spend a lot of time in loaners while their 'fantastic pieces of machinary' are repaired.
