By mid-2010 Cadillac will have a high-performance coupe in its arsenal to take on the likes of the BMW M3 and upcoming Audi RS5. The new two-door is the upcoming 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, which has been confirmed today for an unveiling at next month’s 2010 Detroit Auto Show.
Based on the 2011 CTS Coupe (pictured), revealed at this month’s 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new CTS-V Coupe will likely be fitted with the same 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 as found in the regular CTS-V Sedan.
Production is scheduled to start in the summer of 2010, with sales to follow shortly after.
2010 Cadillac concept teaser
Also on show in Detroit will be a brand new Cadillac concept car, which has been partially revealed in this latest teaser. There are two trains of thought on what the new concept could be: one, a replacement for the STS and DTS lines, and the second, a new entry-level model rumored to be called the ATS. Not much detail can be seen on the concept in the teaser but its strong lines and oversized grille suggests the former.
We’ll have all the details and live images of both cars following their debut at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show in January 12.
