For years, Cadillac was without a proper performance series needed to compete with BMW or Mercedes. Then finally, the V-Series was born. It was all that Cadillac lovers dreamed of. It had powerful engines, world-class handling, and exclusive production. Even the competitors took notice when Cadillac rolled out the brand-new V-Series model (via Motor Trend).
Arguably the most successful was the second-generation CTS-V model. 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 and up to the task, so CTS-V was considered a full package and one of the best driver’s cars available. Cadillac produced three body styles. The CTS-V was available as a sedan, a coupe, and, interestingly enough a wagon. 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.
