2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe SCCA Race Car - Click above for high-res image gallery

Last month, General Motors (http://autoblog.com/make/gm) announced that Cadillac (http://autoblog.com/make/cadillac) would be returning to the SCCA World Challenge (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/12/13/cadillac-returning-to-scca-world-challenge-with-cts-v-coupe/) with an all-new, menacing version of the CTS-V Coupe (http://autoblog.com/model/cts-v+coupe). The race car will officially debut on January 10 at the Detroit Auto Show (http://autoblog.com/category/detroit-auto-show), but GM has released this first set of photos early, showing the hot new Caddy that's set to storm the SCCA circuit starting in March.

Two CTS-V Coupe race cars will be commissioned for SCCA duty, driven by Johnny O'Connel and Andy Pilgrim. The first race is set to take place on March 25 in St. Petersburg, Florida, and we're eager to see what these new CTS-V Coupes look like flying around the track. We'll have live impressions of the race car live from Cobo Hall next week, but in the meantime, scroll through our high-res gallery of stock shots below. GM's official press release is available after the jump (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/01/06/detroit-preview-cadillac-releases-images-of-cts-v-coupe-scca-ra/#continued), as well.

They did a better job of hiding the chopped frame and lowered body this time around.
