Cars & Bids Bargain of the Week: 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan

It also goes electric, but before it does, Cadillac throws one last internal combustion performance party. But getting your hands on an Escalade-V or Blackwing sedan isn’t easy, even if you can put up with their sticker prices. However, if you’re patient, the second-hand market is here to help. And this week, Cars & Bids has a low-cost Blackwing ancestor: a 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan.

The second-generation Cadillac CTS-V set a new American luxury sports sedan with supercharged speed as standard

2009-2014 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan
Engine 6.2-litre ‘LSA’ supercharged V8
horsepower 556 hp
Couple 551 lb-ft
transmissions 6-speed manual transmission
Six-speed automatic
curb weight 4213 pounds (2011 manual)
0-60mph time 4.3 seconds (manual)
4.0 seconds (automatic)

When Cadillac said it was taking over BMW and Mercedes sedans, some were a little skeptical. But the first-generation stick-only CTS-V, while not perfect, showed the brand was serious. And it only got better when the second-generation Cadillac CTS-V arrived for the 2009 model year.
