15. Cadillac CTS-V
For years, Cadillac was without a performance series to compete with BMW or Mercedes, but finally, the V-Series was born. It was all that Cadillac lovers dreamed of, like powerful engines, world-class handling, suspension setups and exclusive production. Even the competitors took notice when Cadillac rolled out the new V-Series model.
Arguably the most successful was the second-generation CTS-V model they produced between 2008 and 2014. Under the hood was a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 556 HP making the CTS-V the most powerful performance sedan on the market. The suspension and the rest of the drivetrain were advanced. In fact, most drivers considered the CTS-V the full package, as well as one of the best driver’s cars available.
Cadillac produced three body styles, so the CTS-V came in a sedan, a coupe and a wagon too. With a 556 HP LS9 V8 engine and 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.8 seconds, the second-generation CTS-V was one of the fastest four-door vehicles on the planet and a true muscle car sedan.
