I stumbled across this gallery of shots from this month's Madrid Auto Show which includes one rear CTS-V shot: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/autoexpressnews/222408/madrid_motor_show_gallery.html :)

So I went hunting on flickr and found a bunch more: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=madrid+cts-v&m=text :bouncy:

Drool, drool, drool.

Those are the export taillights- all markets except the US get them, even on the regular CTS. We'll have the red ones shown in the Detroit photos and in the press release.

Good. The color scheme on the rear end of that car makes me want to puke. Clear tailights with a red third brake light? :ack:

The front and side shots looks great though.

I think I just decided on a color. Radiant Silver.

The silver does look nice:thumbsup:

Also think that the fog light opening could use a little tweak. Maybe the same mesh as the main grills but black. Not quite sure just yet but there is going to be some mods..... Look at that muscle that front end has...
This car is going to kick ass

I can't tell much about those taillights from those pix, but if they've got proper sorts of amber turn signals etc. like most of the world requires then I'd be tempted.

I like the silver, but with the aluminum wheels it's just too much color looking the same. Dark colors with aluminum wheels are the shiz.

But silver with some nice 3 piece rims with gunmetal or black centers are sweeeeetttt!!!

I kinda like it. I lean toward conservative combinations anyway, and I seriously dislike polished wheels and other in-your-face combinations. But I wanna see the blue.

Really, I wanna see the blue on a CTS-V wagon...but that's still wishful thinking at this point.

Found a couple of more (better lighting!) with upsized versions from a spanish blog:

No habla espanol, but that plaque looks to be touting the Nurburgring success. I'm wondering if that's the actual car that did it? If so, I'd be happy to take it off their hands with some official history-making German track miles on the odo :thumbsup:

Even if not, any chance I could score that plaque to put at the end of my driveway? Now that would be the shite!!! :eek:
