Say you’re shopping for a new car but you have to pretty strict requirements: you need plenty of cargo room, and the ability to hit 60 mph in about 4 seconds. Cadillac has just the car for you! According to a recent report in Car& Driver, GM product boss Bob Lutz has confirmed that the 556-hp CTS-V will be available as wagon.

“You’ll be able to get the CTS-V any way you want,” he said in a recent interview, alluding to the fact that the V will also be offered in the current sedan form, as well as in the upcoming coupe.

Sales aren’t likely to be very high in North America, but the CTS-V Sport Wagon should help the Cadillac brand expand in Europe, where there has long been a contest between the German automakers to build ridiculously powerful wagons like the 580-hp RS6 Avant and the 518-hp Mercedes E63 AMG wagon.

No timeline for the production version has been given, but with the CTS-V Coupe expected to debut at the LA Auto Show in a few weeks time, the CTS-V Sport Wagon is likely to arrive roughly a year later. It would also make sense for the debut to take place in Europe.
