In an interview with Leftlane in March, Cadillac General Manager Jim Taylor said if his company was going to make a “V” coupe, it would probably arrive at the same time as the regular CTS Coupe, rather than months later. A recent check of supplier sources provides 100-percent confirmation that the V-badged coupe will arrive in May 2009.

It appears as if there may be question in regards to the ability of enough exhaust to freely flow through the center-mounted exhaust for the super charged LSa engine. If it is, than the Mercedes Benz CLK63 Black series, BMW M3 Coupe and upcoming Audi RS5 have their work cut out for them.

Referred to internally as “GMX226 V S/C,”, the CTC-V should have the familiar wire mesh grille, power dome hood and agressive, low front fascia. It’ll start production during the last week of May in 2009 – along with the non-V CTC (or CTS Coupe).

    I have owned 4 Eldorados, and since they stopped production in ’02, I have had to search for models online with as little mileage as possible. I thought I was out of luck with Caddy coupes, since the beautiful XLR is only a 2-seater and I am a family man. Now that this CTC-V has become a reality, I am doing my little “happy dance” of anticipation every time I think about it. In the early 90’s, 300 HP was a monster in my first ElDog, and we are looking at over 500 HP now? Excuse me – but I feel another happy dance coming on…….

    now this is the only model I would ever consider to replace my tripple black 1993 Coupe Deville. With over 185,000 miles is looks and runs like new or better. Now if they would include that 550 BHP engine & manual transmission I would send them a check right now..! no…forget a check, cash money in advance…just to make sure I had one of the first…! A Z06 is my only other consideration but where do I put my golf clubs? lol…
