The previous-generation CTS-V showed up to the sport sedan party ready to tango, but Cadillac and General Motors decided to really toy with enthusiasts’ heart strings by producing the CTS-V in a wagon variant. To this day, the CTS-V wagon remains an enormous cult classic.
And if a CTS-V wagon is on your to-own list, you should move quickly, because Bring A Trailer has a fine example for purchase.
This 2012 Cadillac CTS-V wagon is equipped with a proper six-speed manual to shift the 556 hp produced by the 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 engine and it looks to be in tip-top shape. The seller says the wagon was acquired by the original owner and retains all service records and squeaky-clean Carfax.
Better yet, this CTS-V wagon hasn’t been modified in the slightest, meaning everything is bone stock save for a custom mount inside for a Passport Escort Max radar detector, which Cadillac should have just included from the get-go. With the speeds possible, the radar detector might be a decent investment. Though, of course, we don’t condone speeding or any sort of reckless driving.
The next owner will certainly want to rack up more miles than the incredibly low 24,300 miles currently read on the odometer, but it’s more than likely, as time goes on, the CTS-V wagon will become quite a rarity. In 2012 alone, only 575 wagons were produced, with the V-series wagons likely a fraction of that total number.
We can’t think of a better way to spend $48,250.
