556hp 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe revealed ahead of Detroit debut

Cadillac has decided to reveal the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe earlier than expected although the coupe’s first public appearance is still set to happen at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show kicking off in just a few days time. The CTS-V Coupe has a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 that is also found in its sedan sibling. The monstrous beast of an engine makes 556hp and a tarmac-cracking 747Nm of pulling power which can propel the coupe to 100 km/h in a very respectable 3.9 seconds.

The engine can either be mated to a good old 6-speed manual cog box or to a 6-speed automatic slush box that comes with paddle shifters. The rear wheel drive coupe that is also fitted with a limited-slip differential is treated to a bulged hood as well as reworked front and rear fascias. It also has 19-inch alloys that are shod with Michelin PS2 tires.

The CTS-V Coupe also has a Magnetic Ride Control system with two modes to choose from including Tour and Sport, fat Brembo stopping power (6-piston up front and 4-piston at the back) and more. Interior wise, you will find microfiber finish for the steering wheel, gear shifter and for the seat inserts while the the centre stack, centre console and door trims are finished in Obsidian black.

Potential buyers can also drive home with an exclusive new Saffron color and sportier Recaro seats fitted with pneumatic bolster controls in the seat cushions and backrests. The Recaros are also 14-way adjustable. More information will be revealed once the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe hits the stand at Detroit.
