If it weren't for the poor fuel economy, the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe would work well as both a weekend racer and a daily commute car, combining exceptional sport performance with practical cabin tech.
Founded in 1902, Cadillac is General Motors' flagship brand. Once regarded as "The Standard of the World," recent decades have seen the Wreath and Crest brand working hard to reestablish itself as one of the world's premier purveyors of luxury cars and SUVs.
With a top speed of 200 mph, the high-performance sedan is also Caddy's fastest.
The wagon format of this powerful 2013 Cadillac CTS-V gives it an undeniable cool factor, while the handling is surprisingly excellent. But outdated cabin tech gives incentive to wait for an updated 2014 model.
As a high-performance luxury sedan, the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V sets a benchmark. It's blisteringly fast and handles extraordinarily well, and offers an excellent set of cabin gadgets.

Cadillac just added the Coupe to its CTS-V line of cars, and this one may be the best yet. The Coupe body employs a radically nasty look that is all too appropriate for the roaring horsepower underneath the hood. But this car also shows some finesse by cornering like a champ.
