The Cadillac CTS coupe was unveiled
at the 2008 Detroit Motor Show. The concept extends the
CTS sedan into the luxury sports coupe market. Although
based on the sedan, the CTS Coupe shares only the instrument
panel, console, headlamps, front fenders and grille with
the production model.

The CTS Coupe Concept is a dramatic design statement,
said Ed Welburn, VP, GM Global Design. We did not
create it as the result of sifting through reams of market
data, nor is its shape trimmed to suit the input collected
at a consumer clinic it is emotion on four wheels
and the very essence of what defines Cadillac today.
Among the Cadillac CTS Coupe Concepts signature
design cues are a number of elements that suggest the
look of a carefully cut diamond particularly at
the rear. These elements are seen in everything from the
chrome header above the rear license plate holder to the
indents that comprise the basic form of the rear fascia.
The 2008 CTS Coupe Concept has a classic 2+2 interior
layout, highlighted by custom-trimmed sport seats from
Recaro located in all four positions.
The Cadillac CTS Coupe is designed to accommodate a range
of engines for the global luxury market, including Cadillacs
popular 3.6L direct injection V-6, as well as a new 2.9L turbo-diesel
currently in development. These engines develop 304 bhp
and 250 bhp respectively.
