Cadillac only made 1,200 examples of the beastly 556 horsepower CTS-V Sport Wagon, which accounts for about 0.5 percent of all second-generation CTS sales. The exclusivity of these rare wagons might explain the high $71,999 asking price of this 2012 CTS-V wagon Jalopnik found for sale on Craigslist, or it could be the obscenely wide body kit that’s driven the resale price up past the original MSRP.
The CTS-V in question was customized by Canepa Design, a well-known, well-respected restoration and customization shop based out of Scotts Valley, CA. This Opulent Blue grocery getter was customized using the same wide-body kit as the Canepa/Bridgestone CTS-V Coupe the company brought to SEMA in 2011. In addition to the extra-wide body cladding, the V wagon is lowered on a set of HRE performance alloys wrapped in some sticky Michelin rubber.
Canepa says over 380 man hours of professional installation have gone into the CTS-V, as well as over $52,000 invested, bringing the total spent on the car to around $120,000. Suddenly, the $71,999 asking price doesn’t seem so bad, or does it? Let us know in the comments.
