GM made official the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V specifications. The V8 6.2-liter supercharged makes 556 HP at 6,100rpm plus 551 pound-feet torque - 3,800rpm.

The CTS-V unit will make the 0-to-60mph sprint in only 3.9 seconds plus the quarter mile in 12 seconds. This si-speed automatic variant will hit a maximum speed of 175 mph, while the six-speed manual will be up to 191mph.

"CTS-V represents the full extension of our design, technology and performance capabilities," said Jim Taylor, the Cadillac general manager. "The V-Series takes the award-winning CTS sport sedan and elevates it to a position within the club of the world’s most exclusive and capable cars".
