2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports V8 Supercharger

Features of the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe including engine, chassis and performance.


The Eaton-supercharged and intercooled V8 engine delivers epic acceleration:

  • The Eaton supercharger incorporates a four-lobe rotor design that enhances quietness while also optimizing the performance parameters of the engine

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports Coupe Brembo Brakes


High-performance hardware for a world-class wagon:

  • Race-bred 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston calipers in the rear, with both sitting on vented dual cast iron/aluminum rotors (15" front/14.7" rear), deliver massive stopping power
  • Dynamic Rear Proportioning uses electronic sensors to modulate brake pressure front to rear for optimum brake balance
  • Ducts integrated into the lower grille area and a vented wheel design both provide additional brake cooling
  • Exclusive 19" forged aluminum wheels shod with Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 tires developed specifically for the CTS-V
2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports Coupe Magnetic Ride Control Suspension


Driver-selectable, dual-mode suspension system helps deliver outstanding ride and handling characteristics:

  • Inside the shock absorbers, an electromagnetic coil controls the alignment of magnetic particles suspended in a specially developed fluid
  • Sensors at all four wheels read the road 1,000 times per second--or in the time it takes to blink an eye--to increase or decrease the amount of shock absorber resistance to up-and-down movement by the wheel
  • The system enhances ride quality in Tour mode, adds razor-sharp turn-in response and greater driver control in Sport mode--without sacrificing ride quality
