The V-series is the best thing to happen at Cadillac since this brand introduced V-8 engines 95 years ago. The thumping idle and the lusty lunge forth after a brush of the throttle really tickle my gizzard. Any family man harboring closet Corvette dreams will find deliverance with each handshake of the CTS-V's suede-skinned steering wheel. This is a BMW M3 with a bigger back seat and a more vibrant heart beat. The fact that there's only one camshaft lurking under this Cadillac's hood makes it all the better when you blow off the lame Lincolns, the smartass Shelbys, and the prissy Porsches that get in your way.
