Cadillac is planning to offer the Cadillac CTS-V in right-hand drive as part of a renewed commitment to taking markets outside North America more seriously.

General Motors marketing chief Joel Ewanick said the 556bhp V8-powered CTS-V was a "car designed for Europe, but one we haven’t treated seriously in Europe".

"We're geared up for right-hand drive now," said Ewanick. "We're working on it."
