I encounter people with serious bank everyday, my company targets the top 3% of the world population. They have multiple homes all over the world, their own jets and SERVANTS to drive THEM around daily. They do have multiple cars, drivers, and cars that they can enjoy, and not everybody is the same. There are guys who have the Ferrari collection, Lambos, Astons, all that crap. The CTS is the entry level car for Cadillac. The CTS-V is a muscle car. The definition of a muscle car is the smallest body available (to Cadillac) and stuff the biggest motor available into it (the LS6). If you look at the way car trends are going there are more 4 door type cars, and now companies are boosting them with hp. For me the choice was simple. I wanted an American car, 4 door, with balls. When walking around the NYC auto show I saw an LS6 stuffed into CTS. Perfect. When they came out with my color I bought it. I need a car that seats more then the Vette, and is just as fast. Bingo, Winner, Yatzee, Whammy, tell me what I won: a badass Cadillac thats fast luxurious, and very rare. M3s and M5s, E55s and all that are a dime a dozen. I can count on both hands the amount of times I've seen a V. Besides I'm 5'8" 130. A STS-V would be silly big. And I would of never bought a Cadillac if it wasn't for the V. People ask me ALL THE TIME why did I buy a Cadillac, I explain, and they still don't get it. I take them for a ride, its a different story. Go Chris!
