“The CTS-V Coupe is the ultimate luxury performance coupe and the new focal point of Cadillac, expressing our design, performance and technical capabilities,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director, GM Canada. “Packing more punch, luxury and technical sophistication per dollar than any other competitor, the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe brings the performance and luxury of exotics into a price range that discerning Canadians can embrace.
This latest award for the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe results from recent back-to-back driving evaluations of 48 new vehicles at the AJAC Test Fest evaluation – the foundation of the Canadian Car of the Year Awards (CCOTY) program. Seventy (70) of Canada’s top automotive journalists judged this year’s competition which aims to provide consumers with sound, comparative information on new vehicles.
The 2011 CTS-V Coupe combines the new CTS Coupe’s dramatic design with the 556-horsepower supercharged V-8 engine from the CTS-V sedan. The result is a luxury sports coupe aimed squarely at driving enthusiasts. Its suite of technical and performance elements include Magnetic Ride Control, racing-bred Brembo brakes and an available automatic transmission with paddle-shift control. With a starting price of $71,250, the all-new CTS-V Coupe offers Canadian driving enthusiasts a world class luxury performance coupe.
