Cadillac CTS-V Coupe on the work?
The production version of the CTS Coupe Concept will come in 2009 as a 2010 model year. The production model won’t be too far off from the concept we saw in Detroit, but will be a little toned down to meet production standards. Basically on the production model, all the metal ahead of the A-pillar will be identical to the CTS sedan.
Engine spec wise, we were told that the Cadillac CT Coupe Concept was designed to accommodate a range of engines including Cadillac’s popular 3.6L Direct Injection V6 and the new 2.9L turbo-diesel currently in development. The car is currently under development under the code-name GMX226 and will be rolling down the assembly line at GM’s Lansing Grand River plant in 2009.
The CTS-V version will be powered by a 6.2L LSA supercharged V8 engine that will deliver 500 hp. This will be a serious competitior for the BMW M3 Coupe.
