The Cadillac CTS-V hit the market in 2009 and now finally the automaker has admitted that they should have a right-hand-drive version for the UK market.
The Cadillac CTS-V hit the market in 2009, but it has taken until now to finally realise they should have a right-hand-drive version for the UK market.
General Motors marketing chief Joel Ewanick has admitted that the CTS-V is a "car designed for Europe," yet they didn't take one of Europe's largest car markets seriously. UK customers are currently limited to driving the inconvenient left-hand-drive version which is hardly ideal and surely loses the performance model a good number of sales. Therefore it is good news to hear Ewanick say "we’re geared up for right-hand drive now, we’re working on it."
The Cadillac CTS-V burns rubber to the tarmac with power from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8-engine. It produces 556 hp (564PS/415kW) and up to 747Nm (551 ft-lb) of torque which enables the model to propel from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds.
