    The latest issue of Motor Trend pits the V coupe with the German Kraut M3 and Audis and it faired very well against them both. I've yet to see one in person but just from the pictorial I can't make up my mind whether I like the styling just yet. I'm a Caddy fan also but I'd jump all over the Shelby if I was given the choice! I'd probably opt for the V wagon just because it's seems more practical.

    The CTS Coupe reminds my a little of my Firebird with its long door and tiny (nearly useless) back seat buckets. Cadillac describes the seating arrangement as 2+2. The car looks nice in person.

    Personally, I prefer the GT500 just for the styling and the look - same reason I love the T/A

    Nope. It doesn't. The back seats are pretty cramped.
