Weekly Test-Drive: 2010 Cadillac CTS-V makes us love our job

Let’s take a break from all the recall news and introduce you to the latest ride in egmCarTech’s garage – the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V sedan. That’s right we’re test-driving the fastest sedan to circle the famous Nurburgring in Germany and we’re loving every second of it.

First Impressions: Forget first impressions, the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V sedan creates a lasting impression and makes you realize that Detroit is capable of some very amazing things. Power comes from 6.2L Supercharged V8 based on the LS9 V8 from the recently released Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1. The engine makes a neck-snapping 556-hp with a maximum torque of 551 lb-ft. Mated to a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual or a Hydra-Matic 6L90 6-speed automatic, the 0-60 mph run is rated at 3.9 seconds (we’ve managed to achieve 4.2 so far).

For the first time in a long time, we have a car in our garage that gives us a punched in the stomach feeling and a feeling that we’ll get in trouble with the authorities.

Prices start at $62,020 and we think it’s worth every penny taking into consideration build quality, performance and overall look, feel and appeal.

Stay tuned for our full review due out later this week. In the mean time, ask us all the questions you want answered about the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V in comments section below. We’ll do our best to answer everyone we can.
