Introduction
First introduced in 2004 as a performance version of the Cadillac CTS, the CTS-V was designed to compete against sports sedans like the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG and E63 AMG.

First in the V-Series, the CTS-V was later joined by the supercharged STS-V and XLR-V in 2006, marking a trio of models capable of 0-to-60 mph acceleration in under 5 seconds, as well as enhanced overall performance and luxury features. The rear-drive, 4-door high-performance luxury sedan goes beyond the all-new CTS sport sedan for 2008, as Cadillac engineers and designers raised the performance and luxury bar even higher. The automaker refers to the CTS-V as the "brand's ultimate expression of performance and luxury."
