Cadillac CTS Coupe Concept

We’ve been talking a lot about cars here on GP lately, but if you don’t know the 2008 Detroit Auto Show is going on right now and there are some cars you should know about. The Cadillac CTS Coupe Concept is one of them. We can’t recall the last time we saw something this sexy from Cadillac. Skin-ladened rap videos aside.

Powered by the 304 horsepower 3.6 Liter Direct Injection V-6, the 2+2 seater really evokes four-wheeled (20 and 21 inchers to be exact), six-piston caliper brakes on cross-drilled rotors, LED lighting, B-pillar less design, Recaro seats and Bose audio system.

What this means to you: Let’s hope this one gets approved, and more importantly doesn’t get slapped by the ugly-stick we know as “safety rules and regulations” before it comes to production.

Cost: Concept

UPDATE: The CTS Coupe is now slated to be built by GM with a proposed roll out date of June 2009 as a 2010 model. Few changes from the concept are planned. Read article here.

Make sure to see the other angles after the jump. One image doesn’t do it justice.
