Middling Cabin, Magnificent Handling, Marvelous Car 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe – Click above for high-res image gallery Cadillac has never made anything like the CTS-V Coupe, a $63,000 monster that's half hedonist and half hot-rod. Not only that, Cadillac's never fought in this part of the market before. The brand had monster engines back in its early days, but they were always pulling monster barges that wallowed as much as, well, barges.
