Cadillac CTS-V is the new smoke monster - Click above to watch video after the jump (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/21/video-cadillac-cts-v-drifts-its-wheels-off-at-monticello/#continued)

The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe (http://www.autoblog.com/model/cts-v+coupe) is a lot of things. It's a luxury two-door that's also a muscle car. It's a supercharged beast with a fire-breathing LSA (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/07/09/2011-cadillac-cts-v-coupe-first-drive-review-road-test/) mounted under the hood. And it's also a smoke machine. Monticello Motor Club (http://www.autoblog.com//tag/monticello+motor+club) invited a slew of vehicles out for its first annual Drift (http://www.autoblog.com//tag/drift) with the Supercars (http://www.autoblog.com//tag/supercars) event, and while a few dedicated drift cars showed up, a handful of other lust-worthy rides arrived to ruin their rubber. The CTS-V Coupe was on hand, sharing the track with a Ferrari (http://www.autoblog.com/make/ferrari/) 575 Maranello, C6 Corvette (http://www.autoblog.com/model/corvette), 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/porsche+911+gt3+rs) and a Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/clk63+amg+black+series/).

The Cadillac (http://www.autoblog.com/make/cadillac/) fared exceptionally well against the rest of the competition and took home the title of Best Drift in New Car. Check out the tire-shredding, sideways action in the beautifully shot video after the jump (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/21/video-cadillac-cts-v-drifts-its-wheels-off-at-monticello/#continued).
