Autozine
20 January 2009 | The CTS-V (the most powerful Cadillac ever) is available from February 2009 and will be priced from £56,495 on-the-road (£58,995 for the automatic transmission model). CTS-V's supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine delivers 564 ps (415 kW) and 747 Nm, launching the car to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and on to 191 mph where legal (175 mph for the automatic transmission).

Working in harmony with the extraordinary power unit is Magnetic Ride Control (MRC), which uses shock absorbers controlled by electro-magnets, rather than mechanical valves, greatly accelerating response time. CTS-V is also equipped with powerful Brembo brakes; six-piston callipers act on 380 mm discs at the front, and four-piston callipers on 373 mm discs at the rear. These features, along with four-channel ABS, hydraulic brake assist and dynamic rear brake proportioning, ensure that the performance capability of Cadillac's most powerful model in history is delivered within a package of equally advanced vehicle dynamics technologies.

Complementing its performance, the left-hand drive CTS-V also delivers the refinement of a fully appointed prestige saloon. New, 14-way adjustable Recaro performance driving seats, high quality 'hand cut-and-sewn' double stitched leather and sueded material, and a new high-gloss black Obsidian surface finish, all combine to deliver a luxurious, comfortable cabin. Other features include a premium voice activated infotainment package featuring iPod integration, 40 GB hard drive and a hard-disk navigation system.
