Officially Official: 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon unleashed!

March 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Here in America, drivers who prefer station wagons to crossovers and SUVs are in a distinctly fringe minority. In spite of that, Cadillac has heard the cries from the wilderness and delivered the car we’ve been clamoring for. The CTS-V Sport Wagon is now finally official and production starts later this year.

Ever since AMG built a handful of Hammer station wagons back in the late 1980s, the idea of a family hauler with ludicrous power and torque has held a strange and twisted appeal for us. The V-wagon takes all the traits we love about the 556-horsepower sedan and adds the expanded cargo body style.

(Cadillac CTS-V) Hennessey V700 is crazy, fast

March 26, 2010 Leave a comment

There are two kinds of people in the world. The first kind drives Cadillac‘s supercharged CTS-V, experiences the thrill of 556 horsepower paired with 551 pound-feet of torque and declares, “This thing is a monster. This is the fastest, most incredible American performance sedan ever made.” Then you have the other type of person, the kind that takes the 4,300-pound CTS-V to 60 miles per hour in just over four seconds, runs the quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds at 115 mph and says, “Meh.” Should you fall into that second category, John Hennessey has got a car for you.

John’s calling it the Hennessey V700 and, as you might have ascertained, it’s a Cadillac CTS-V pumped up on the best auto-steroids available in the Houston area. One crank of the fake key and your ears quickly explain that the gnashing, metal-on-metal-on-lava sounds leaking out from beneath the floor pan don’t come from some run-of-the-mill super-Cadillac. No, something special is going on under that that tortured hood. Viciously special.

Escalade ESV not enough? Try the Becker/STRUT Escalade Limo

If you’re buying a Cadillac Escalade, there’s a good chance that even the Platinum Edition ESV won’t be enough for you. That’s why companies like Becker and STRUT exist, so that you can shine like one of the brightest stars in the multiverse. When these two companies get together on something… well, you’ll probably need tinted goggles to behold it. So it’s with a bang that they introduced a special edition Cadillac ESV limo.

How do you top platinum? With a floor-to-ceiling leather interior, where you’ll enjoy a home — or is that limo? — theater system, broadband Internet, a wall-mounted computer screen… and the company of your statuesque personal assistant with the Eastern European accent. Check out the full press release after the jump, and the hi-res photos below. Now where did that recession go again… ?
