Station wagons aren’t as popular in the US as in other Western countries – nor, frankly, as popular as they should be. So it’s somewhat surprising, then, that Cadillac ever even bothered to offer the supremely capable CTS-V in wagon form.
Nonetheless, voila! Up for sale on eBay is this perfectly exquisite, one-owner 2014 Cadillac CTS-V Black Diamond Sport Wagon, with a proper (read: manual) transmission. It’s practically good as new with just 10k miles on the odometer, and being the V-badged CTS, it has the potent, supercharged 6.2-liter V8 under the bonnet.
That motor sends a whopping 556 HP through the transmission to the rear wheels. The Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon is a wonderful machine; it’s made up of equal parts luxury, practicality, and stratospheric performance. Plus, there’s the rarity. Chances are strong that you’ll never see such a prime example of a Cadillac CTS-V wagon for sale in your life, let alone one equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission and the Black Diamond Tricoat paint.
This tasty piece of American automotive engineering can be had for $65,500. (Note: That’s more than the base price for a new one of the same model year, but this example is loaded with navigation, Recaro seats, metal pedals, Black Diamond paint, and an Ultraview sunroof.)
