    I just Googled 2008 CTS & this image came up. It is clearly a V & seems to be the same as the car under the blue tarp. Who knows if it's accurate or not.

    Maybe this will grow on me, but looking at the entire car, I prefer the current look with the orange daytime running lights.

    That Is A Inaccurate Pic Because Gm Has Not Taken Any Pics Of The CTS Uncovered...And If They Did It wold Not Be Shown To The Public Right Now.

    The proportions aren't right. I suspect a photochop. But it does look close. I don't like it myself. May have to look at the STS next time I buy.

    Obviously it's not an actual pic of the new CTS since it's not going to be unveiled until Detroit, but my guess would be they used all the spy photos floating around and the sneak peek pics to make this artist's rendition. I'm just wondering if it's close. I guess we'll see pretty soon.

    That's an obvious photoshop job. A lot of bright highlights with no HDRI reflections.

    The positioning of the car and background are taken from a pic of the current CTS-V. I'll see if I can dig it up...




    *EDIT* Here it is:
    http://jeje3711.free.fr/v-tuning/Cadillac-CTS-V.jpg

    I would wager that they copied on the new front end and used the smudge and clone tools to drag and smooth out the rest of the lines...
    You can see where they evened out the pavement in the lower right corner too.

    Also look at how the car sits in the photoshopped pic. They look to have tucked the wheel to get a more aggressive stance, but didn't change the others. The driver's front spring would have to be broken to get that kind of lean. They also seem to have forgotten the passenger rear wheel if you look under the car.

    The more I look at it, the more I see small lazy flaws. Hope no one was paid much for that, it's not very good.

    Maybe the rear passenger tire is being changed? That's why there is no wheel and the car is leaning so far...

    I think the author of that photoshop did a good job to try and give people a view of what it could look like from a distance. The grill looks less gross from a far away view, but I still think it will look bad on the actual car when pictures are released from Detroit. We will have to wait and see.

    did anyone else note that they left the V badge on the upper fender?
    funny.

    the next V is supposed to have more dramtica side moldings, fender flares and a new hood to help differentiate it from the cts

    apparently owners were saying "wait, i spent an extra 15k (40k cts with all options) and all i got was a new bumper and grille?" (i know there are other more subtle trademarks)
