15k: 4-Door Vette: 2005 Cadillac CTS-V

Back to the basics with this post after a few overpriced projects, in the shape of one of my favorite Corvette powered cars. The Cadillac CTS-V is a modern hot-rod sedan from General Motors and prices are very reasonable in the market today.  Find this 2005 Cadillac CTS-V for sale in Billings, MT for $13,000 via craigslist.  Tip from Oldsmobuick.

The CTS-V appeared in 2004 to stun the world with a properly fast Cadillac that could take a turn without listing like a torpedo’d ocean liner.  No need to scream “abandon ship” at the first sign of FIA curbing as the CTS-V was “tuned” on the Nürburgring and will accelerate to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds thanks to its 400 horsepower 5.7 liter LS6 V8 (borrowed from the C5 Z06 Corvette), a 6-speed manual gearbox and a LSD rear end.  All good stuff, from GM’s parts bin, packaged in a decent quality sedan.
