    Guess who drove a CTS-V coupe on a race track?

    Me, that's who.

    Cadillac was nice enough to invite me and a guest to the Autobahn Country Club, a private racetrack in Joliet, to drive afew laps in the CTS-V coupe.

    I won't get into a big review since most of you guys are pretty familiar with it. I will mention that I really like the (synthetic) suede seat inserts and steering wheel cover though.

    I'll tell you, the power delivery is deceptively smooth. I mean, when you exit a corner and give it full throttle, you're expecting a tsunami explosion of power and torque. What you get though, is a gradual building of speed, as if you're connected to a gas turbine. It's hard to explain.

    The brakes are just awesome. It's amazing how well they can slow this 4300 pound car as you enter a corner. Very confidence inspiring. And the chassis tuning and steering felt nearly unflappable. Great job GM! Awesome car.

    But If I were buying one, I'd go with the sedan or wagon. Personal preference I guess, but I just think they look better than the coupe. And a 6 speed manual is a must.

    Glad you liked it. My preference would be an automatic v coupe. I dig the suede seat and steering wheel. I had some track tim in The v coupe too.

    Very composed for 556hp

    Yeah, I really haven't warmed up to the looks of the coupe. It's just looks like it's got a big 'ol butt and not very elegant. Just my opinion though.
