Welcome to the new photo series on Top Dead Center, Cars in the Wild! Seeing awesome cars at an Auto Show is one thing, or seeing them on a racetrack is certainly another, but seeing an unexpected gem cruising down a back road or sitting in a showroom or pulling into a parking lot is what makes life worth living. That was the drive behind the Cars in the Wild series; we’ll be posting pics of the rare, exotic, amazing as we see them just chillin’ in real life. The inaugural entry is the Cadillac CTS-V, seen at the MacMulkin Chevrolet/Cadillac dealership in Nashua. Stickered at a cool $71,000, the CTS-V is like the fire breathing Satan child of the run-of-the-mill CTS sedan. Caddy stuffed their 6.2 liter supercharged V8 engine into the engine bay, upgraded pretty much every part on the car, and plunked it into the showroom. The CTS-V sedan and coupe make 556 hp and over 550 lb-ft of torque, and it is confirmed to be the fastest four door sedan in the world around the famed Nurburgring racetrack in Germany. If Caddy keeps making cars like this, they will have no problem correcting and sprucing up their image. We can think of no better way to do that than creating a tire-shredding, chromed out, supremely badass luxury car. Bring it on.
it’s like a corvette for q-tip’d old people. They can still golf on Saturday’s and turn their wrinkled wife on headed home from church with a little push of a peddle.
A showroom is like a whore house to a dude trying to get laid… it’s just too easy.
Dave, this is true. I did like your analogy of seeing Silver Back gorillas in Glastonbury much better than I like this analogy, but the point is the same, and I agree. TDC will take your comment under advisement.
