New Cadillac CTS-V Detail Photos

Cadillac has new CTS-V photography up.

Standard CTS interior appearance; only notable is no wood trim — looks like the V series is sticking with the high tech look.  When the STS-V came along, the wood trim steering wheel was skipped because it is a bit slick for use on the track.  I’m guessing that the same rule was used here.

The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V employs Brembo’s dual- Cast 14.5-in (370mm) rotor for the first time in North America, with six-piston monoblock front calipers. Unlike traditional cast iron discs, dual-cast discs are made of two materials – cast iron and aluminium – and offer many advantages, including a 15-20 per cent reduction in weight, greater driving comfort, less corrosion, wear and resistance to fade, and better braking performance.

Beauty shot of the CTS-V’s LSA engine.  This engine is unique to the Cadillac CTS-V.  It is basically a Supercharged and Intercooled LS3 OHV V8, making 556 hp.  The engine in the new ZR1 Corvette is also a Supercharged 6.2L V8, but the LS9 engine is hand built and uses a larger, 2.3L supercharger where the CTS-V uses a 1.9L Supercharger.
