The fastest four door car in the world the CTS-V could be joined by a bigger brother on the market, an estate version. The Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon is, at the moment, a show car meant to deliver thrills at the upcoming New York International Auto show.
The current CTS Sport Wagon is one of the best looking estate cars out there; giving it a similar status in performance would pretty much make it what family men with heavy feet desire. This performance is set to come from the same 6.2 liter LSA V8 supercharged engine that’s found under the hood of the sedan. So what this slightly more aggressive looking CTS Sport Wagon has to get as fast as possible round the Nurburgring is made of a pretty interesting list:
– 556 horsepower,
– 551 pound-feet of torque
– 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic (with the same Performance Shifting Algorithm)
– magnetic ride control
– Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires
– forged aluminium wheels
– Brembo brakes (dual-cast aluminum/iron)
Add all of these together and the CTS-V Sport Wagon that Cadillac is showing off could be the fastest estate in the world. It also has some interesting infotainment accessories (a Bose 5.1 sound system, Bluetooth phone integration, and a USB-enabled 40 GB hard drive) but who would care with such a beast at your disposal? However, what needs to be mentioned is that the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon is at the moment a show car and this means that it’s not a concept but also it’s not a production car, yet…
Production of the CTS-V Sport Wagon is likely to start towards the end of 2010 and the car could be sold as a 2011 model.
