LOOKS LIKE A FAM­ILY CAR, BUT MOVES LIKE IT’S STRAPPED TO A ROCKET THE CADIL­LAC CTS-V IS A DE­CEP­TIVE BEAST

Shortlist - - CONTENTS -

We go for a spin in the ul­tra-quick Cadil­lac CTS-V sedan.

To the unas­sum­ing, the Cadil­lac CTS-V is sim­ply a good look­ing sedan. The type of ve­hi­cle you’ll nip to and from the shops in. With five doors and boot space big enough to fit a road bike (we checked) it’s a lovely lit­tle day-to-day ve­hi­cle. But that all changes when you start the en­gine. From the throaty, fire gar­gling sounds of the ex­hausts, you in­stantly re­alise why this Amer­i­can thor­ough­bred is con­sid­ered to be one of the fastest sedans on the planet. 640 horses will thrust you to a palm moist­en­ing top speed of around 320km/h. The scari­est/most fun part about it? The faintest of taps on the ac­cel­er­a­tor send it into warp speed and thrust you back into the be­spoke Re­caro bucket seats. Great stuff. Quite hon­estly, it’s ev­ery­thing you could want in a ve­hi­cle. Prac­ti­cal­ity for your daily drives and all the fun of a sports car.

Cadil­lac CTS-V re­tails from AED348,000
