Default Cadillac CTS in Mumbai

Spotted the Cadillac CTS in Bandra today. It's of the best looking American sedans! Could just manage one pic as he was refueling and I was in the queue.

P.S: Created a new thread cuz didn't find any other thread on the same.

Nice pic. One of my friends had spotted it in Worli a couple of weeks ago. I just love this car's front end. The vertical headlight, the grille, the logo, looks awesome.

Saw a black one on Link Road, bang outside Oshiwara depot. There was a traffic jam and it was in the first lane. Dont have a cam in the phone so could not take any pics

Should be the same one for which the theragingbull has provided a link

I spotted another 2007 Cadillac CTS today. This time it was a golden color. So this makes it 2 CTS's in Mumbai.

Default Cadillac CTS-V on Shanghai's F1 circuit

This was shot at Shanghai, China's $450 million Formula 1 Circuit.
The occasion was the Cadillac CTS-V, being just introduced to China.
The Cadillacs were driven by a team of professional stunt drivers from Hollywood.

John Heinricy and the Cadillac CTS-V wowed the crowd by achieving the fastest lap ever on that circuit for a fully production-spec sedan. The lap time was 00:02:32.8.

The Cadillac CTS-V is a direct competitor to the BMW M5.

The 2009 CTS-V uses Delphi MagneRide technology, now made in Beijing. The shockabsorbers, filled with magneto-rheological fluid, are magnetically adjusted at 1 millisecond intervals. The car has four wheel disc brakes.
Its engine, produced in GM's Silao, Mexico plant, is a supercharged 6,162 CC LSA cast alloy OHV V-8, based on the Corvette C6 ZR1's V-8. It produces 556 bhp and 747 Nm of torque.

The Cadillac CTS-V costs between US$ 62,000 and US$ 70,000 new.

Interesting catch there, Zohaib!

The Cadillac CTS is a good alternative to the Mercedes E Class/BMW 5 Series/Audi A6(?) It's big, comfortable and its American! The badge/brand has plenty of snob-value as well, so if you're in the market for a premium executive sedan, apart from the German thoroughbreds and the Jaguar XF, one could give this a look, despite it being an import.

EDIT. P.S. It should be available in RHD, right?
