I drove a similar CTS-V coupe around Europe last June for a big feature story I wrote for Automobile Magazine. That car had the six-speed automatic, a gray leather interior, and chrome wheels, with the same red exterior. I prefer this recent example with its smoky gray wheels, black leather interior, and six-speed manual. My colleagues have learned the same thing I did in Europe: the CTS-V coupe is a completely benign car, easy to drive, easy to place on the road, easy to park and to live with on a daily basis. But then when the right opportunity presents itself, it is a fire-breathing monster performance car. It's a very compelling combination, this hybrid of luxury coupe and sports car, and I agree with Phil Floraday that nobody outside Germany is currently doing it better than Cadillac is with the CTS-V coupe.

You have to be kidding...my 2011 V Coupe has the fit, finish and overall quality of a Little Tikes Crazy Coupe (sold as Kids are Us). Those seeking a new Coupe need to look somewhere beside Cadillac.

Very cool car and nice to see Cadillac getting its groove back. Looks and performance at a relatively bargain price. gybognarjr - are you kidding? Sounds like sour grapes for someone who overpaid for a German wundercar that will get its a** kicked for 1/2 the cost. And lowoctane - rear visibility and no spare? Puhleeze! "Gee, I like that Lambo but the rear visibility is poor so I'll get the Volvo wagon instead". This car is about passion and looks. I think people need to stop judging good product based on old GM experiences and open their eyes and mind to the new reality. Your old certainties are no longer valid.

I thought this car looked sharp. Alas, it has the rear visibility of a garbage truck.Also NO spare tire, and no place to put one.Government Motors loses on the CTS Coupe!

Ugly and pointless car. Why pay a fortune for a lousy GM car?
