Cadillac's swish contender in the mid-size luxury car segment between 2003 and 2019 was called the CTS. Created in sedan, station wagon, and coupe forms, it was succeeded by the CT5. As you'd expect, Cadillac did create a madcap variant called the CTS-V, which packed a monstrous V8 and all the associated theatrics. We've got one of those madcap cars, a second-generation 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe looking for a new home after doing 57,635 miles.
Sporting an apt Thunder Gray paint job, this 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe looks every bit as menacing as it is. A set of silver ten-spoke alloy wheels frame Brembo disc brakes on all four wheels, with yellow-painted calipers for a splash of color. We are told that the tires are reportedly new, which is excellent for something that can easily smoke them at will. Now, let's step inside. The Jet Black interior with accents of yellow offers seating for four, with front-seat occupants treated to Recaro performance seats. A performance steering wheel, sueded shift knob, and alloy sport pedals exist as well. Manual gear shifting duties are taken care of by paddle shifters on the steering wheel, which is a multifunction unit that also includes cruise control. Other features to note are dual-zone climate control, heated front seats with 8-way power adjustment, a 10-speaker Bose surround sound system, keyless start, and an infotainment system with CD playback plus navigation. Rear-seat passengers will also appreciate the relatively generous space afforded to them, thanks to the CTS-V's sedan roots.
However, rear-seat passengers may not appreciate the sheer thrust afforded by the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 when you floor the go pedal in this 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. Their screams will be drowned out by the engine's hellish roar as it develops 556hp and 551lb-ft and pushes it to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. You can ignore the complaints, pleas and screams as the CTS-V can rocket to sixty from rest in under four seconds. Magnetic Ride Control continuously adjusts suspension parameters for a dynamic ride, and we are told that this car has received new brakes and shocks too.
