Following the CTS Coupe Concept debut in Detroit, we first saw spy photos of a CTS Coupe in April, and now spies have caught the performance V-Series variant. Alongside the current CTS sedan at the Lansing Grand River Plant, production start of the standard CTS coupe and CTS-V coupe is expected to begin in May 2009 with both models launching simultaneously as 2010 models.

It is speculated that the same 550hp 6.2-liter superchanged V8 engine from the CTS-V sedan will carry over to the coupe. In these photos the CTS-V Coupe is distinguished by large cross-drilled brake rotors and centrally-mounted dual exhaust tips. Other notable features include the bulged hood, large sporty rims with low profile tires and, of course, the CTS-V Series grille.

The CTS Coupe will make its world debut in production trim at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
