Here is a pic of the back of the coupe:

With enough money anything can be accomplished, but I believe you'd run into issues with both the bumper covers and the exhaust. If you google cts-v exhaust images you'll see some under car shots that highlight the differences in the exhaust routing between the sedan and coupe. The sedan has the spare tire well (no spare tire, but the well is still there) in the center that would likely make it challenging to route the exhaust out the center.
Best I can tell there is no off the shelf solution, it would have to be custom ($$$).

I imagine with a little creativity and some trimming you could do anything but the angles are way off. Just look at pictures of the two cars and you'll see what I mean.

Custom work is in order...

Re: Center mounted exhuast
I really like the looks of the center mounted exhaust, I'll have to look into it a little. It may be worth the effort. You guy's have made up my mind as I plan on getting the CTS-V instead of the 2010 M5. I wonder if anyone else would be interested in the exhaust conversation.

You could be a trend setter in that arena, my friend. Keep us posted on how it goes.
