When you weren’t paying attention, somebody awesome at Cadillac decided that a CTS-V Wagon was something that the world desperately needed. Rear wheel drive, 550 horsepower, 550 foot pounds of torque, supercharged, a 6 speed manual transmission option, 19 inch polished aluminum wheels, and brakes that will stop you so fast that your tongue will stick out. Gosh I love America.
These cars are officially showing up at dealers now, waiting, lurking, and quietly entering your dreams. The one pictured just arrived over the weekend near me. For just over 30 thousand 2 dollar bills, this family truckster could land itself in your driveway. You could then put a couple kids in the back and drive like a respectable adult surrounded in luxury from Monday until Friday. Then on Saturday morning, you flip your hat brim up, put on dark sunglasses and rip through gears like you just robbed a bank. Cadillac claims 0-60 in 4 ish seconds with a quarter mile flying by in 12.6 seconds. If you have never driven down a drag strip before, let me tell you, 12’s is stupid quick. Factor in that your rolling in a wagon on 19’s that is chock full of leather….and the only word to describe it is “EEEEEE!!!”. Well played Cadillac. We don’t care why you made it, in fact, we don’t even want to know. We’re just happy that you did.
