Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon (2010) first official picturesTue, 30 Mar 2010
This is the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon, with a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 and an even bigger boot.
That’s right, only in the V-series range of CTS Caddies it’s detuned from the ZR1’s 638bhp and 604lb ft to 556bhp and 551lb ft. Still, that’s more power than the M5, XFR, E63 or Panamera Turbo can muster. Another big number is 720, the amount of space (in litres) in the boot of the CTS-V Sport Wagon.
It’s the final box ticked for Cadillac’s CTS range; there’s a saloon, coupe and estate, and now there’s a V-series version of each too. Like its saloon sibling, the CTS-V Sport Wagon is available with a choice of six-speed gearboxes (a manual or automatic), while magnetic dampers, Brembo brakes and high performance Michelin tyres wrapped around forged aluminium wheels are standard.
There’s a CTS-V bodykit on the outside and two 3in wide exhausts, and on the inside it’s the same as the saloon with 14-way adjustable Recaro seats.
The Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon will be unveiled at the 2010 New York auto show later this week. The CTS-V Sport Wagon on display in NY will be painted the same Midnight Silver as the Cadillac Sixteen concept car, plus it gets a black chrome mesh grille and the interior is trimmed in black leather, Alcantara and wood. It’s a finish bespoke to the show car, but Cadillac will gauge customer reaction before deciding if the trim options will make production.
