Cadillac CTS-V / Overview / Form follows function

The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe's design is a clear visual statement of the technical precision and performance intent of the car.

The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe has the same wheelbase as the CTS-V Sport Sedan, but its overall height is about two inches (51 mm) lower and its overall length is two inches (51 mm) shorter. The two models share only the instrument panel, console, headlamps, front fenders and grille.

Key design features include:

Classic hardtop styling, with no conventional B-pillar
Touch-pad operation for the doors removes the need for conventional door handles
Faster windshield angle (62.3 degrees) and a nearly horizontal backglass enable an aerodynamic profile
Signature vertical lighting, highlighted with LED light pipes
Signature center high-mounted stop lamp functions as a rear spoiler
Aerodynamic roof-mounted antenna for OnStar and XM Satellite Radio
