The new re-designed Cadillac CTS-V is due to be released sometimes in 2009. But the looks are less important than what's under the hood. Is it still unclear which engine they will going to be using, it could be the normally aspirated LS7 V8 or maybe a supercharged 6.2-liter V8? A deeper, aggressive front air dam, sill extensions, nice-looking 10-spoke wheels and a revised rear fascia are also part of the package.
With an expected 525HP from whatever winds up sitting under the hood, the CTS-V will definitely become a strong competitor for BMW's 3-series. I could even adventure and say that the BMW M3 fans might be very impressed with the performance of this new Cadillac.
