Want to own a car that decades from now people will ask: “Is that for real? Did GM really make that? Can that wagon really hit 60-mph in 4.0 seconds?” Well here’s your car: the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon.
Yes, now you can own 556-hp of supercharged V8 might in wagon form, for a less-than obscene sticker price of $62,990. That’s under $1,000 more than the sedan.
Along with that power and an equally impressive 551 ft-lbs of torque, the V wagon gets high-performance goodies like like Magnetic Ride Control shocks, Brembo brakes, 19-inch forged-aluminum wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. Oh, and did we mention you can even get it with a six-speed manual transmission?
On top of all that, there’s spacious seating for five and a total of 58 cubic feet of cargo room. And if you’re in the mood, upgrade to some Recaro seas for $3,400 and add the $300 Suede steering wheel and shifter (you absolutely have to).
And along with all that awesome power and functionality comes the built-in guarantee that you may never see anyone else driving the same car as you.
