AutoWeek has selected the CTS-V Coupe as its 2011 Best of the Best Car, placing the Cadillac at the top of the class of new or significantly redesigned cars for the 2011 model year.

AutoWeek editors graded new vehicles on drivetrain, ride quality, handling, exterior and interior design and fun factor. The CTS-V Coupe received the most points overall in the car category.

AutoWeek editors noted the CTS-V Coupe’s dramatic design and also praised the Cadillac for providing both power and refinement. One editor called it the “best Cadillac ever.”

“The car is stiff and set up to handle well, but Cadillac has found an intriguing mix of performance and ride quality that places this creation in a category of its own,” another editor wrote. “It’s quite something to behold.”

The CTS-V Coupe features a supercharged 6.2-L V8 engine delivering 556-horsepower and a Magnetic Ride Control suspension system that can read and react to the road in milliseconds. The CTS Coupe and CTS-V Coupe, part of Cadillac’s high-performance V-Series line, were both introduced in the second half of last year for the 2011 model year.

Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. In recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic renaissance led by artful engineering and advanced technology. More information on Cadillac can be found at media.cadillac.com.
