2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Review - First Drive

At a buck forty the supercharged V8 engine continues to pull strong, but there's no more room to test its power as the large six marker at the start of the braking zone is indicating that the time for the middle pedal is now.

Then again, maybe I'll wait for the 5 marker. Or maybe even the four. No, not this time. Not after that high-speed straight. Not without a few more laps… or maybe never.

And then the Brembos dig in, like a high-tech aluminum and iron anchor tossed out the back. Incredibly, the car is completely stable under such tremendous braking.

"Dammit!" I think, having slowed perhaps a bit too early. I could have made more of that back straight. Then again, perhaps I shouldn't risk more. After all, this isn't my high-performance luxury coupe. It belongs to Cadillac.

Yes… Cadillac.
