America’s answer to the Mercedes-Benz E63 and the BMW M5, the Cadillac CTS V is a muscle car dressed in a tuxedo. A part of the brand’s line-up since 2004, the American brute has built a reputation for embarrassing significantly pricier offerings on dragstrips and circuits alike.

Billed to be a four-door Corvette, the third-generation Cadillac CTS V is the most powerful Cadillac produced to date. With a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine under the hood, the luxury sports sedan produces a tire-shredding 640 horsepower and 855 Nm of torque.

With grunt being directed to the rear wheels, it’s a handful by any stretch of the imagination, but is redeemed by its subtle, understated styling.
