Quick Drive: 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

We have already done a full review of the CTS-V Wagon and I’ve been chomping at the bit to drive the Coupe. I do like the way the Wagon looks, and not because I think it’s a sleeper – because it’s not – but it just looks good. The Coupe on the other hand just looks that much better. I know there are many out there that would disagree, but if it was my money, I’d go for the Coupe in a heartbeat.

Inside the CTS-V Coupe is exactly the same as the Wagon. Surprisingly enough, driving the coupe felt exactly the same as driving the Wagon. You never really notice all the mass behind you in the Wagon until you look out the rearview.

The one difference between the Wagon we reviewed and the Coupe we drove here was the transmission. The coupe was equipped with an automatic transmission and while it worked fine, we’d obviously prefer the manual in this type of performance car. Oddly enough, the CTS-V Coupe won for 2011 Car of Texas, and while it is a great car, it wasn’t our first choice in that category.

Thanks to our friends at Non-Stock Photography for the photos.
