2011 CTS-V Coupe Unveiled: Finally!

After Cadillac launched their award-winning CTS-V sedan to warm praise in 2009, many expected a coupe form wasn't far behind. As it turns out we were right.

GM will launch their CTS-V coupe at the Detroit Auto Show next week, but we have the details about it here.

The powertrain for the CTS-V coupe is in line with that of the sedan: massive and mouth-watering. The car features the same supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, good for 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque. Available transmissions are both six-speed units: either a manual or automatic with paddle shift control.

2011 CTS-V Coupe Unveiled: What's Different?

Other than its missing two doors (and check out those door handles -- they're flush with the bodywork), the CTS-V coupe and sedan don't have a whole lot that separates them. But, the CTS-V coupe is about one inch wider at the rear than the CTS-V sedan and should be a bit lighter. Also, like the base-model CTS coupe, the CTS-V coupe features an open cabin thanks to a lack of a B-pillar.

Performance numbers for the CTS-V coupe aren't available for a few months, but expect that the coupe will be even faster than the CTS-V sedan given its slightly lower mass. The sedan currently hits 60 mph under four seconds. What will the coupe do? Only time will tell.
