Brute Force: 2005 Cadillac CTS-V

In 2004, Cadillac unleashed the CTS-V sport sedan, packing a manual gearbox and a V8 that roared like a dragon on espresso. While the regular CTS was eyeing sales from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3/5 series, the V-version had bigger fish to fry – BMW’s M division and Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division. Now, those German sedans are the stuff of legends, but let’s face it, they’re as complicated as assembling IKEA furniture blindfolded. Meanwhile, Cadillac said, “Hold my drink,” and dropped in a good ol’ pushrod V8 from the Corvette because who needs complexity when you can have brute force? The CTS-V: for those who like their speed served with a side of simplicity… and a dash of cheap! Find this 2005 Cadillac CTS-V offered for $12,950 in Houston, TX via freezebook slapetplace.
