The question: What kind of car does it take to convince a busy, big-shot, world traveling attorney from the Northeast to catch the next flight to Texas just to go for a car ride?
The answer: A 2011 Cadillac CTS-V coupe.
What car comes to mind when you think about a coupe with 556 horsepower, 551 foot-pounds of torque, 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, ¼ mile in 12.3 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 175 mph? Probably not a Cadillac, until now.
The 2011 CTS-V coupe is based on the CTS coupe that we drove a few months ago, and enjoyed. Rather than rewriting that review, this review will focus mainly on what the extra letter added to the name means – and it means a lot.
