9. Cadillac CTS-V
For years, Cadillac was without a proper performance series necessary to compete with BMW or Mercedes. But finally, the V-Series was born. It was all that Cadillac lovers dreamed of with its powerful engines. Also, it had world-class handling, an updated suspension setup, and exclusive production numbers. Even competitors took notice when Cadillac rolled up with their new V-Series model. Arguably the most successful was the second-generation CTS-V model produced between 2008 and 2014. Under the hood was a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 delivering 556 HP.
That made the CTS-V the most powerful performance sedan on the market. The suspension and the rest of the drivetrain were advanced and up to the task. Soon the CTS-V was considered the full package and one of the best driver’s cars available. Cadillac produced three body styles, so you could get the CTS-V as a sedan, a coupe, and interestingly, as a wagon, too. With a 556 HP LS9 V8 engine and a 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. You could say it’s a true muscle car sedan.
