For Sale: Sinister CTS-V Wagon pops up on Craigslist

cts-v CL
On the list of Must Own cars, the Cadillac CTS-V wagon surely sits. Here’s an example from 2013 currently sitting for sale on Craigslist. It’s only wearing 26,000 miles on its odometer and it’s in the appropriate shade of mean. Sure, it would be nice to find a manual gearbox sitting betwixt the front seats but you’re still getting that 556-horsepower LSA planted under the hood.
So what say you, dear reader, is this a good buy at $55,000 asking price?

    If I had the money, it would be mine. I put several hundred miles on a friend’s ’12 V coupe manual, and while I would prefer a clutch, I’d much rather own a wagon than the coupe.

      Ah, but how do you know that it never does?

      Satisfaction sometimes comes from knowing what it can do versus feeling what it can do. Additionally, it is not always about going fast, rather about having an effortless driving experience. I have a much more enjoyable time passing someone on a steep grade whilst barely pushing on the right pedal instead of waiting for a car to downshift and make a lot of noise and still barely manage a pass…. Power makes a car pleasant more than it makes a car fast–for some people.
      I’d say it is a good buy. The price to performance to availability ratio is about right.

        There’s also the sheer fun – when driving a decently quick car at reasonable speeds for the conditions – of watching the looks of utter confusion and frustration on the faces of other drivers trying to goad you into racing them when you don’t rise to the bait.
        Yes, I know that the car I’m driving is fast. It may even be faster than yours. I don’t care, but feel free to keep making those amusing noises and movements; if there’s a cop around, I know which one of us isn’t getting pulled over.

          The red RX7 will get pulled over, the guy in the 3500S pacing it is ignored.

      You can do a lot of living between 60 and 90 mph.

    This is my dream car, simple as that. “The One.”

      As well it should be. We will likely never see such a thing again.

    I haven’t seen a manual offered for less than 75K, but the autobox would not sway me at any price.

    I am not sure I’ve seen a CTS-V wagon that wasn’t black?
