We’ve never featured a 2nd generation Cadillac CTS-V on DT before (plenty of 1st gen versions) and not for lack of want. The 556 horsepower supercharged 6.2 liter LSA V8 pushes the porky 4-door to a world record for a sedan 7:59 at the Nürburgring Nordschleife (at least until it was beat by the Porsche Panamera Turbo a few months later.) But it matters not, because today we’ve got one in DT price range — nevermind the salvage title, gas station photos, lien title, and lack of interior/engine pics. Find this 2011 Cadillac CTS-V offered for $23,000 in Baton Rouge, LA via craigslist. Tip from Ramjet.

But here we are 15 years later, and an ’05 CTS-V sells for about the same as or more than an ’04 Z06…maybe those extra doors are worth the extra money? Personally, I’d need one for a few year test drive to find out. Find this 2005 Cadillac CTS-V offered for $14,500 in Pleasant Hill, CA via craigslist.

We’ve all seen the original Road Warrior, a timeless piece of cinema that deserves a place in your collection sandwiched between Citizen Kane and The Godfather, but what if the movie was filmed today in the badlands of New Mexico and Max couldn’t get the last of the Interceptor V8s…what would he drive? A 21st […]

Naturally, the later cars are worth a few more bucks on the used market, but […]
