General Motors revealed the production version of Cadillac CTS Coupe model during L.A. Autoshow last year, and now they introduce the V-powered variant of the car before its debut at 2010 Detroit Motor Show.

For those who are familiar with the CTS and CTS-V sedan, this car is instantly recognizable. Although the Coupe has a different shape specially at the rear-end, but the V-series visual factors are all over the car giving it a distinguished character.

The CTS-V coupe gets the same engine as the sedan version which is one of the most powerful units GM has ever made. It’s a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 which chucks out 556 horsepower (415 kW) and 551 lb.-ft. of torque (747 Nm).

As a result, this exquisite Caddy offers blistering performance as well. It can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.

GM was determined to make the CTS-V Coupe a proper handling car so they’ve fitted it with Magnetic Ride Control suspension system, Brembo braking package and 19-inch cast aluminum wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 2 performance tires.

Cadillac CTS-V will go on sale later this year as a 2011 model.
