The 2009 Cadillac CTS-v will be Cadillac’s (likely) successful entry into the supersedan segment where many of the competitors are priced tens of thousands of dollars higher than the Caddy. With 556 horsepower from a supercharged V8, Cadillac says the CTS-v will roar to 60mph in 3.9 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 12. Its magnetic ride control reads the road 1000 times per second.

And this is what it looks like. Oh, you’ve seen it before. But these are new pictures, something for American car lovers to be proud of.

Cadillac’s CTS-v website allows you to hear it roar, as well.
