FrontRunners: Two by Four

    The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V turned heads in 2008 when it lapped Germany’s infamous Nürburgring track in 7 minutes and 59 seconds, at the time becoming the fastest-ever V-8 production sedan. This January, at the North American International Auto Show, Cadillac released plans for the 2011 CTS-V Coupe (www.cadillac.com), which is clearly intended to produce similar results. The sedan and the coupe run on the same 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine, which produces 556 hp and 551 ft lbs of torque and pushes the CTS-V Coupe to 60 mph in the same 3.9 seconds as the sedan. The coupe goes on sale in June for about $70,000.
