2009 Cadillac CTS-VAs many of you know, I already tested the Cadillac CTS-V at a press preview put on by Cadillac a few months back. But after heaping all that praise upon the CTS-V, I began to second-guess myself. I realized that I really didn't know what it was like to live with this car as a daily driver. What if this Best New Cars of 2009 winner was really a horrible car to drive every day? Had I done a disservice to you, my Constant Readers? Had I compromised my journalistic integrity? Had I committed a wrong that needed to be made right? I realized I had a moral obligation to spend more time with the CTS-V.

Are you buying any of this? Nah, I didn't think you would. I don't think GM believed it either, but they were nice enough to loan me a CTS-V anyway. Find out how it all came together in my 2009 Cadillac CTS-V follow-up test drive and review. -- Aaron Gold

So how is the regular CTS? The V sounds great but a Caddy with just good performance and handling would also be a very good thing.

If the V is as good as an AMG or M class BMW is the CTS as good as a standard BMW?

I want one. The coupe looks fantastic and I can’t wait to see it but if I remember correctly it has just recently been put on hold so who knows just how long that will be. Probably at least another year past the original release date. For all the haters, foreign fans in particular, GM’s not going anywhere.

I don’t know if I’d ever give 5 stars to a car requiring a Gas Guzzler’s Tax, but this is truly a great and remarkable car. The regular CTS is terrific, but this car is awesome if you’re looking for a BMW M series/AMG competitor. The ZR1 and this car shows that GM has the capability of competing with the best, unfortunately few of us wll have the thrill of ever owning one, especially during these hard times. Like the Deusenbergs of the 30′s…great car, bad timing!
