Florida based tuner Drop Top Customs has confirmed that they will show a Cadillac CTS Coupe Convertible at the 2010 SEMA Auto Show later this year. Drop Top Customs is no stranger to convertible conversions, having done conversions for the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and even the four-door CTS sedan.
CEO Jeff Moran says that the rakish roofline of the coupe will offer for a much better convertible version of the CTS.
Moran says that he has a stock CTS Coupe coming to the showrooms any day now and doesn’t expect the conversion process to take very long. If all goes as planned, Moran says that DTC will start offering two-door CTS convertibles to customers this fall. Prices for the conversion will be released closer to launch date.
Refresher: The 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe is powered by a 3.6L direct-injected V6 engine producing 304-hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or a Hydra-Matic 6L50 6-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control. EPA-estimated fuel-economy comes in at 17/26 mpg (city/highway) when mated to a rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive system with an automatic. With a rear-wheel-drive 6-speed manual, the CTS Coupe averages 17/25 mpg. Prices start at $38,990 for the entry-level model with RWD.
