2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe revealed

GM released the information for the new CTS-V Coupe. Pretty much the same specs as the sedan.

Don't care for the central exhaust on a car like this but otherwise it looks pretty solid

Awesome car handles like a german car with the power of a muscle car. Would seriously consider this over an e92 M3. Only complain is since it's GM going bankrupts I don't know how they would warranty issues.

I doubt it handles as well as the M3 -- it is always compared to the M5 due to its size...
Also, the blind spot is enormous on these cars.
Otherwise, probably a great value for what it offers...

I'd take a regular ls3 vette over this, the exterior just doesn't do it for me although it'd be a great sleeper against unsuspecting drivers

What an incredible car. This is an M6 eater, just as the sedan was a M5 eater. Still like the sedan a bit better, but that's just personal preference. They did a great job with the coupe, and I can't wait to see this on the road.

"On a car like this"? Are 550hp super-coupe's not supposed to have central exhausts? Thought that's what they were for specifically....

GM already went bankrupt, ditched a ton of their debt, and came back. They're already paying back what they owe in fact. The warranty will stand solid.

looks good. I think I'd like the exhaust better if it were a single outlet (Lambo style) or if duals were on the outside.

Right now, it's the only car in it's price range that I'd want. I love the stubby, angular coupe bodystyle, and this is just agressive enough to pull it off.

The sedan is $64k, so I assume the coupe will be around $67-69k.

I'm not ready to write a check, but this may very well be my next car. I hope it looks good in person, because the numbers are certainly impressive.

I love this car! The E92 M3 is sexier but this thing would kill it on a track...

Looks pretty good to me. I wonder if the interior has been improved.
